You know the old saying about running around like a chicken with its head cut off? You probably assumed that it came from some kind of bizarre science moment where headless fowl have several last neurons firing, a sort of electrical jump making them go nuts! Well, the truth… is actually exactly that. It’s not that spectacular. But, there are plenty of tales about headless creatures that can get your blood really running!
One of the many American folk stories, the tale of the Headless Horseman is, as one might expect, a gruesome tale of horror and death. It claims that in the midst of the American Revolution, a Hessian soldier had come in order to taste the blood of his victims. Nothing could stop the horrific onslaught until a blast of cannon fire took off his head… or so they thought! Not even that could sate the rider’s bloodlust. It would continue to rise as though possessed by the very spirit of warfare, chasing down the American settlements, wreaking havoc on the neighborhood and ever seeking more victims. Phew… now those are a lot of firing neurons!
Whichever story may be true, you can enjoy a bit of the legend yourself by going for a headless jaunt yourself with this Sleepy Hollow Headless Horseman costume. The Revolutionary themed jacket fastens with Velcro down the back and the bandolier harness straps across the chest. An inflatable shoulder component allows for the missing head to strangely breath, a creepy addition that will delight all, no doubt! Accessorize with the iconic axe or a jackolantern and you’ll have the legend come to life!
