The saloon is smoky and the lantern light is dim. A lonesome piano player tickles his ivory keys in the corner as every cowboy and banker anxiously awaits her arrival and the whiskey and conversation both seem to flow endlessly through the bar. Glasses clink and wooden chairs scoot across the floor to position themselves for the evening's entertainment. The bartender pours one final glass of 'redeye' and clears his throat to inform the anxious audience that she is about to take the stage. The tavern's lantern lights grow and the piano player begins a ragtime ballad as the showgirl takes the stage. She saunters and across the room and the only thing that can be heard are her lyrics about Tupelo and sweet tea. Her saloon girl costume captivates once again. She owns the room and the night, and you can too, dressed as an Old West Saloon Girl.
Saloon Girl Costumes
The tavern girl is the vixen of the old west. Her hair is full of big inviting curls and vibrant color. Her appeal is both bombastic and classic, combining exotic sex appeal and a classy charm unseen before or since. Warm make-up and dark eyeliner with fiery red lipstick compliment her dark hair and feathers and a tiara keep her face in full view. Evening gowns with lace and a mix of leather or corsets are her clothing of choice for the saloon. As long as the colors are dark and accentuating, saloon girl Halloween costumes will be genuine. Stockings that are stripped or pinstriped draw the eye of the crowd up and down and back again. Her smoking heels are not made for function, but for fun. The showgirl also adores her knee high boots that lace up tight.
Whether you have roped your own cowhand or old time banker, or you are there to dance and perform, an outfit like this will make you the envy of every woman and the desire of all that see you. Saloon girl costumes are always sassy and fun; be it an old-fashioned dance hall or Halloween party.
