costumes from historyWe’re all about having a good time on Halloween, and for kids that usually involves trick-or-treating and costume fun that helps make for a memorable night. While most of our costume products are made with fun in mind, that’s not our only pursuit. We aim to cover every costume experience with the widest selection of costumes on the web, and that includes historical costumes. Be it for re-enactments, school plays, or for raising awareness about the important events of history, a historical figure costume can help children embrace their lessons and bring history to life. When it comes to American history and the Civil Rights movement, there are few figures more important than Rosa Parks. We won’t try and retell the entire story here (we couldn’t do it justice!) but if your child is learning about how her refusal to give up her bus seat sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, this Rosa Parks Costume will help your little one engage with history and tell the story.design & detailsThis Girls’ Rosa Parks Costume is Made By Us, which means it was designed by our own team in-house. The costume is inspired by the outfit she was wearing in one of her most memorable images, an undated photo of her riding the Montgomery Area Transit System bus. The costume is styled to look like a brown overcoat over a plaid dress, but it’s actually just a one-piece combo to make for an easy costume experience. It also comes with a brown pillbox hat to complete the look.sharing important storiesHelp your little one share the story of Civil Rights icon, Rosa Parks, when you get this costume recreation.
