Before becoming Vice President and President of the United States Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt was a larger than figure who was known for his adventurous spirit, as well as off-the-wall quotes that had a knack for sticking in people’s minds. When he was younger, he struck out on adventures to tame western North Dakota and Eastern Montana, as well as going on Safari. This is the iconic look you see reflected with his Theodore Roosevelt costume.
As a young man, Teddy Roosevelt was prone to bouts of Asthma and emotional malaise. One day his father famously said to him “Get action. Do things; be sane; don't fritter away your time; create, act, take a place wherever you are and be somebody; get action.” It struck a chord so powerful in the young man that it became philosophy he lived his life by. This is exactly what you see reflected in this Theodore Roosevelt costume, capturing the look he wore when conquering the front range of the Rockies and heading out on adventures in Africa and the Amazon. This deluxe costume includes a safari hat, his iconic glasses, bold fake mustache, bandana worn as a cravat, jacket, pants, and a belt. It’s available in standard adult and extra-large sizes.
