Howdy partner! A cowboy is an animal herder who tends cattle on ranches in the U.S.A., traditionally on horseback, and often performs a multitude of other ranch-related tasks. The historic American cowboy of the late 19th century became a figure of special significance and legend. So why not become the legend of the party when you wear a cowboy costume? Cowboys generally wear jeans with chaps, boots, shirts with waistcoats, gloves and a hat. Become the cowboy's worst enemy when you wear a Native American costume. Generally, American Indian's are pictured in brown suede tops and pants with fringing on the sides, big multi-colour feather headdresses and beads. Accessorize the look with an axe and a long black wig.
