Sure, the reality of the violent Wild West, with all its shoot-outs and hot, dusty days, was anything but amusing, but that doesn't mean related Halloween costumes can't be lighthearted and fun! You and your little one could be outlaw Halloween bandits. Cover your faces with headbands and hold up houses with plastic six-shooters. If the idea of dressing up as criminals bothers you, stick with the more traditional cowgirl-cowboy combo. Think of it as the perfect opportunity to combine Wild West lingo with Halloween, as you "mosey on over" to the neighbor's house to "rustle up" some candy.
