The name Ichabod Crane is inextricably linked in literature with the Headless Horseman, and a few people who haven’t read Washington Irving’s actual story may mistakenly think that Crane WAS the Headless Horseman. He wasn’t. Ichabod was the schoolmaster in the fictional village of Sleepy Hollow, and he encountered the Headless Horseman, believed to be the ghost of a Hessian mercenary from the Revolutionary War, while riding late at night back to the village from a party at an outlying farm. He had made a proposal of marriage to the farmer’s daughter, and had been rejected.He was never seen in Sleepy Hollow again. The next morning his unsaddled horse was found wandering, the saddle trampled, and a smashed pumpkin lying alongside Crane’s hat beside the road.Wear this ensemble with your own black pants. And for a more realistic touch, carry one of our pumpkins as a prop. Everyone will want to escape this spooky creature whose head was blown off by a Revolutionary War cannonball!

Catch everyone off guard at your next Halloween or costume party with this Headless Horseman Costume! The costume can be funny or scary depending upon your accessories!
His ghost rides forth from to the scene of battle in nightly quest of his head…sometimes passing the Hallow like a midnight blast.What could possibly be more terrifying than the headless horseman? Well, Christopher Walken as the headless Hessian, from the movie Sleepy Hollow. Sure, his headless form in that movie was creepy, but his head with pointy teeth was even more horrifying.But you don’t want to be that level of scary. No you want to capture the essence of the headless horseman…and by that we mean the headlessness. You don’t want to have a head. The whole point of the Headless Horseman is that he is HEADLESS. You want to walk down the street on Halloween, and have people know who you are.This Headless Horseman Costume captures the essence of all that is the Headless Horseman. (Mostly that he is a riding a horse, and headless.) You’ll be galloping through your neighborhood, jumping out at folks. They will scream as they see your horse’s evil red eyes, then they will realize that you are just a bloody neck stump right before you run off to give a good fright to your next victim. They will be afraid, and not because you look like Christopher Walken’s version of the headless Hessian with pointy teeth. The newspapers the next day will read “Headless Horseman Spotted Again!” And “The Hessian Spotted in the Hallow!”
