Historically speaking the symbology of Uncle Sam can be traced back to the War of 1812, when a New York Meat packer named Samuel Wilson freely provided barrels of beef to help feed the troops. It was a sign of personal sacrifice for the cause of freedom that has inspired millions of people to join the service. So, it’s no wonder why it was rejuvenated again in a character like Uncle Sam in World War One and World War Two recruitment posters.
It’s relatively easy to come up with the red, white and blue costume accessories of a believable Uncle Sam costume. Though the facial hair and wig are a little trickier. Especially if you need someone to portray Uncle Sam in a school play. That’s where this Uncle Sam Disguise Kit comes in handy. It includes a wig and facial hair that are easy to apply and quick to remove. With proper care, cleaning and storage it’s easy to use for performance after performance.
