With the colony's growing success and economic strength, the settlers began to form their own customs and traditions that would eventually put them at odds with Great Britain. The Colonial Boy Child Costume features a blue vest with attached white sleeves, a pair of matching blue knickers, a fancy jabot with lace trim, and a colonial style black hat with white trim. Your boy can be any number of men during the colonial era as a diversity of trades developed to allow the settlers to live comfortably and peacefully. Things did eventual take a sour note as Great Britain began to abuse the rights of the American colonists more and more, eventually resulted in the Revolutionary War that won America its freedom as an independent nation. This is an excellent costume for a patriotic themed party that will have everyone complimenting your son.
