In the Americas Voodoo started out in the 18th Century as an underground activity. Thousands of enslaved West Africans were shipped to Haiti to work on French plantations. These people were eventually baptized as Roman Catholics, though they did their best to hold onto their own traditions. This melting pot effect had a profound effect on their culture, which spread to other parts of the Caribbean and the American South, where it has taken on a mystical life all its own. With such a rich history, it’s no surprise that so many people choose to don the guise of a voodoo practitioner at costume events, wearing ensembles like this Voodoo Dude costume.
