A word from Jessica, the 'Happy Trails To You Roy Rogers' costume creator:
This is my 1 year old, Max. The idea to be Roy Rogers was inspired by my grandfather, an avid Roy Rogers fan and a avid Max fan! My grandfather has watched Roy Rogers and Gene Autry westerns for as long as I can remember. My husband and I decided to dress Max as Roy Rogers to bring joy to my grandfather! The how to on this particular costume: we used felt to make most of it. The chaps, fringe on the chaps, the vest and vest embellishments are all made of felt. The embellishments I used were stars and fringe. My mother stitched the embellishments on with a needle and thread, 2 stars on each side of the front facing vest and 3 stars across the back of the vest which is outlined with stitching all around. As well as the chaps, stitching down each leg to hold the fringe on. We purchased the hat at a local Halloween shop. 'Trigger', Roy Rogers horse is a stick horse and the rocking horse 'Roy' Max rode on was a birthday gift from our aunt. We also made a chuck wagon to complete the illusion of Roy. The boots and red bandana were purchased at Walmart. The white wrangler shirt from a local boot shop and the Levi jeans purchased from a local department store. We used a wooden box crate and painted it brown and used foam door ducting to hold the frame for the wagons cover. I hot glued the canvas to the ducting and lined the wagon with red Ric-rac ribbon. I painted the Woodlawn letter in red and outlined with a black sharpie 'Max Tatum as Roy Rogers' and hot glued them to the front facing of the chuck wagon! We played the tune "Happy Trails" as we were doing a 'photo shoot'.
