Historical themes are perennially one of the top costume choices for Halloween. And when it comes to American history, costume shoppers invariably prefer one time period to all other. That, of course, would be the pioneer times when brave folks were opening up the American frontier for settlement. Pioneer costumes make for a great choice for Halloween, and obviously, they're pretty handy for school plays and historical re-enactments, too.

Yup, that's right, we're fully stocked on costume recreations of the clothing styles that would have been worn when crossing the Appalachians, settling on the prairie, or heading out west on the Oregon Trail.

Pioneers setting out for a new life on the westward expansion trails had a perilous journey in covered wagons in store for them.
