Do you think American history is boring? Then let us introduce you to a man named Ben Franklin. He’s proof that history is much more interesting than most give it credit! He did so many cool things during his life, that he could even take King of Cool title away from Steve McQueen. Mr. Franklin’s long list of accomplishments include studying electricity and being a rock star musician of his time, while still finding time to invent the lightning rod and bifocal glasses. He’s also on the 100 dollar bill! Now, with our Benjamin Franklin costumes, you can dress just like the historical figure! We carry a large selection of Ben Franklin costumes for kids and adults. So, whether you like history, 100 dollar bills, or your kid has a pageant about the Revolutionary War, you can get the perfect historical outfit. "But wherefore do not you a mightier way Make war upon this bloody tyrant, Time? And fortify yourself in your decay With means more blessed than my barren rhyme?" - William Shakespeare We all want to be remembered for something. But that tyrant Time works constantly to erase the memory of our work and deeds. We remember only a large handful of people from the last few centuries, while we remember the names of only a spare few a thousand years prior. That sucks, doesn’t it? We don’t mean to inspire in you any sort of existential dread. We only mean to inspire you to action! Like role-playing the part of one of the most prominent people and minds in the short history of the United States. A top, ever-influential diplomat, a sharp-witted writer and biographer, a dizzyingly productive inventor—Benjamin Franklin has so far fought that tyrant Time with valiance. (Not only did he invent the lightning rod and bifocals, but he also facilitated fire departments, libraries, newspapers, and universities! What better way to forge your own timeless path than stepping into the coveted shoes of someone so accomplished? Now you can become Benjamin Franklin’s doppelganger with this Adult Benjamin Franklin Costume. This costume is great for historical plays—or anything, really. The first time you wear it, ask if anyone has seen your ID in their wallet—and if you walk away $100 richer, let us know it worked. "Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise." Your son has just gotten the part of Benjamin Franklin in his school play. You knew they were doing a play, and you knew he was going to be trying out, but he kept telling you that he was going to get the part of James Franklin, Ben’s brother. But then he got the lead. And you were proud. Then he told you that the school won’t be providing the costume. That was two months ago. He has been practicing his lines. Memorizing everything he can for proper immersion into the character. He has even started talking like Franklin. "It’s called method acting. Duh." That’s what he said to you when you asked about the extra research. Then you remember that you need to get his costume. Now it is the 11th hour, the play is just two weeks away. You need to find that costume, and you need to find it now. Luckily for you, we have this Child Benjamin Franklin Costume. It comes with the grey twill jack that Franklin is always depicted wearing, and an attached vest, just a lighter shade of grey with decorative buttons. And when your son asks where the electric clippers are, you know that you will also need to buy the Child Benjamin Franklin Wig to ensure your son doesn’t shave the top of his head, then somehow figure out a way to dye the rest of it grey. Maybe he will pick up the old adage about early to bed, early to rise. Probably not though. It’s all about the Benjamins… which means it’s all about you, baby! This costume is for the confident only: no 5s, 10s or 20s for you. No, you’re all about the big bucks. Moolah. Strutting’ your stuff, secure in your position as a big spender. Ever dreamed about rolling around in a big pile of hundred dollar bills? This Men’s 100 Bucks Costume isn’t quite that extravagant, but it’s pretty darn close. A hundred bucks might not be what it used to be, but can still get you quite a bit. You can get a 24-inch flatscreen. You could get 25 40s, or 6 and a half pizzas. We’re gonna have to crowd around the TV a little, but that sounds like a party to us. You’ll feel like the richest guy in the room in this goofy costume. Please don’t try to spend this Men’s 100 Bucks Costume––counterfeiting holds a penalty of up to 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000 in the United States, and while this giant bill would only pass muster with the least observant of sale associates, even conspiracy to commit the crime can come with a 5-year sentence. So if you have to make a joke about trying to spend it, be really, really clear you’re joking. You’ve been warned. And watch out––if you get caught in the rain, you could still be accused of money laundering. Sorry. We’ll show ourselves out.
