Dress the part in Tombstone

Have you ever dressed the part to experience Tombstone’s unique culture? In Tombstone, it’s fashionable to dress like the Victorian-era legends that made the town famous. If you forgot to pack your feather boa, cowboy hat or chaps, head down to Big Nose Kate’s Saloon. They’ll provide them, and you can take your picture with a real Old West back bar and sometimes some Old West costumed characters. 

Folks have the option of going to any one of the “Old Time” photo shops where they’ll dress you up and have their photos. Sadie Jo’s Photos at 109 S. 3rd Street, Madame Mustache’s on 455 E. Allen St, Tombstone Photo at 507 E. Allen St; Can-Can Old Time Photos on the corner of 4th & Allen Sts. 

To buy Victorian Era clothing, you can shop at Frontier Floral Finery on 80 N. 4th Street, Happy Jack’s Mercantile at 720 E. Fremont St, Tombstone Mercantile at 511B E. Allen St, Bronco Trading Company at 414 E. Allen St, Spur Western Wear at 509 E. Allen Street, Red Buffalo at 412 E. Allen Street and 3rd Street Antiques at 109 S. 3rd Street.

If you have dressed the part, we’d love to hear about it. If you have a web page, send us a link!
