Fourth of July Costumes


Rasta Imposta Aunt Samantha Adult Costume

Fourth of July is a fun and patriotic holiday, a time for celebrating our nation’s birth with fireworks, backyard barbecues and picnics. It’s also fun to dress up in patriotic costumes like an Uncle Sam costume or a red white and blue outfit like this women’s 4th of July dress.

Fourth of July Costumes

You can get creative and be the Statue of Liberty or one of the founding fathers. What could be more patriotic than a colonial costume like a Betsy Ross costume or being one of the Presidents like George Washington or even George Bush. Halloween is also a great holiday to wear a President mask or costume. Patriotic costumes are also a unique idea for Halloween parties or trick or treating. They make great couples costumes too.

A Wonder Woman costume for her and a G.I. Joe costume for him makes a great couple look. An Army Nurse costume and Sailor costume look great together too. Whether it’s Fourth of July, Halloween or the school play, patriotic costumes are fun to wear. Don’t forget your pet in the celebrations get them a patriotic pet costume for the holiday.

Uncle Sam Costume

Uncle Sam has been a classic symbol of the United States since the 1800s. With his white beard and goatee and stars and stripes clothing and top hat, he represents the US government. Uncle Sam wants you and you can dress up like him for Fourth of July, Halloween or other national holidays.

Statue Of Liberty Costume

The Statue of Liberty was a gift to the United State from France. She is a symbol of the United States and stands for liberty enlightening the world. She is a great idea for a patriotic costume for Fourth of July or Halloween or other patriotic holiday. Lady Liberty’s greenish hue is due to her tarnished copper construction. She has a seven pointed crown and holds a torch and a tablet and
has sandaled feet.

George Washington Costume

George Washington was our first president and the father of our nation. A George
Washington costume makes a wonderful patriotic costume for Fourth of July,
National Holiday or Halloween. This Deluxe George Washington costume comes with
a character mask, jacket and attached vest with jabot. All you need are pants
and shoes. A cherry tree, an axe and not being able to tell a lie help too.

Betsy Ross Costume

Betsy Ross is credited with creating the first American flag. She is a patriotic figure and a Betsy Ross costume makes a great colonial costume for Fourth of July or costume parties. She wears a mopcap and a lace up bodice and has an American flag prop.

Colonial Costume Patterns


President Costumes

fourth of July decorating ideas??/?

my grandma always rents a cabin in the mts this year it will be on the 4th the state park has a decorating contest.. What should we use and do to try and win?

See if you can get some red, white and blue lights (like the ones used on Christmas trees) and arrange the lights on the roof or the side of the house in a flag configuration. If there is a covered porch, staple patriotic fabric here and there from the upper edge to make ‘curtains’ near posts and tie them back with red ribbons. String lights around the porch, front door or in a tree. Set up an outdoor entertainment area with a picnic table decked out in red, white and blue tableware.
Buy flags (check the dollar store) and place them in pleasing spots. Perhaps you can get a hand full of the small flags with wooden sticks and place them on each side of the walkway to the door. Have the entire family wear red, white and or blue on the 4th of July. You can buy patriotic fabric and swag it outside under the windows. If you have any lanterns you can hang outside, you can slip a piece of blue velum paper inside to project a blue light. I would really play up the lights because that will be the best show at night time. Bring along thumb tacks and alot of partiotic wide ribbon and outline some of the outside windows or the door. You can get that inexpensive crep paper wide ribbon and wrap it around posts or make streamers from the branch of a tree near the outdoor entertainment area.

Go to the dollar store and just see what they have in the way of red, white and blue things you can use. You can buy a few 4th of july cards and tack them to your front door in a checkerboard pattern. Craft stores sometimes have patriotic paper in the scrapbook section along with solid colors. Take the paper and cut it to fit inside a plain drinking glass, stick a tea light in the glass and you will have an inexpensive decoration for the table. Do this to several different size glasses with different papers and you will have a great centerpiece on your table. Turn the glasses over at bedtime or if it rains to keep them fresh. Bring a wide, long yellow ribbon and tie it around an old oak tree.

I hope some of these suggestions will inspire you. With a little creativity, you can accomplish anything. Good Luck
