For an original costume idea, try the Child's Founding Father Colonial Costume from Candy Apple Costumes. This outfit is also a delightful choice for school plays or projects. It includes a red jacket with gold military-style trimmings - much like the ones British Redcoats wore during the period - and an attached shirt front. Completing the Colonial look are blue pants, boot tops and a white jabot. Weapon and hat are not included. Will you choose to go along for Paul Revere's ride or fight for the other side?
Your little guy will definitely be an original in this American Revolution Colonial costume. It's perfect for Fourth of July parades, too.
