A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.
The American Colonial Period extends all the way from 1607, when Jamestown was founded, until 1781, when Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown.
Working-class people in 18th century England and the United States often wore the same garments as fashionable people—shirts, waistcoats, coats and breeches for men, and shifts, petticoats, and dresses or jackets for women—but they owned fewer clothes and what they did own was made of cheaper and sturdier fabrics.
During the Colonial period, no Colonial Gentleman's suit would be complete without the addition of his- White powder wig, lace jabot, matching lace cuffs, colonial stockings, and shoe buckles.
These Historical costume kits are designed to help put the finishing touches on many of our costumes. We sell most of our historical clothing as separates; this allows you to create your very own personal outfit.
Most synthetic Costume Wigs are one size. They have a built in stretch mesh netting that can fit both adults and children alike. We recommend wearing a nylon wig cap under our Costume Wigs as it helps maintain stability and placement of the wig. Depending on whether you have hair or not, this wig cap will keep the hair in place and allow for a more comfortable fit. If you don’t have hair, it will help maintain placement and enable a cooler fit.

We recommend wearing a wig cap, to help secure wig in place and control your hair underneath the synthetic wig.
