Sheriff Callie's Hat
Sheriff Callie always has her pink cowgirl hat perched atop her head. It's one of the standout items of clothing she wears and so you'll definitely want to start with the hat! You can buy one at the store or make it yourself.
Sometimes, a costume is even more fun if you make it yourself!

Sheriff Callie's Pink Cowgirl Boots
Sheriff Callie's pink cowgirl boots are a stand-out item when you first set eyes on her, so a good pair is important. The right shoes will ensure that your little cowgirl can sheriff and strut around in style. You'll definitely want to consider how comfortable they are. Sheriff Callie needs to run, jump, and play all day, so the boots need to fit right. If you can find a pair of pink cowgirl boots in a store close to you, that's great, because your child can try them on to see if they are comfortable before you buy them.
Pink cowgirl boots for toddlers and little girls are not hard to find. However, it's worth looking around until you find a pair that's just right. Some designs range from to ones with flashing lights. It's all a matter of preference. The old west baby girl cowgirl boots shown above feature lovely stitching and are made from strong leather—not to mention they're a nice shade of pink! hot pink with sparkles on them
