Why would anyone reconsider dressing like a goat of all things? Well, let's step back. Costumes are very popular and have been since well before the Middle Ages. These days, dressing in a costume is mandatory for many for Halloween, and some other holidays as well. Christmas is big with Santa and Mrs Claus and Elf and Grinch Costumes and more, Easter is an additional one popular time for dressing up, and even the 4th of July this year I saw a lot of themed costumes. Even non holidays will often have costume parties and other events suitable for dressing up as man or something that is not you.
You could simply dress as one of the classics: a superhero, a themed holiday costume, or a preeminent form like Einstein or Abraham Lincoln. Equally popular is dressing like a preeminent contemporary man or figure, maybe Mick Jagger or a character from the most recent hit movie or Tv show. These are all good choices, so why something as separate as a goat?

When you pick a popular costume idea like Santa Claus for Christmas or the Easter Bunny for Easter or Lady Gaga, you are not being very creative, although your costume may be. There will no doubt be other Santas around or Witches or Pirates etc. By picking something more individualistic you will be more unique, and it's less likely man will be dressed as you.
So why do I often pick dressing as goat? Goats run deep in our psyche. What child does not know the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff for example? And much additional back, Pan, the mythical half goat and half man god of shepherds, their flocks, and their mountain environments was quite a fun guy. He is often linked with parties as well as being one sexy guy with an substantial sexual appetite. Goats are also promptly recognizable.
Goats are animated and animated animals and very popular with children. They are becoming more and more base as pets as they are similar to dogs, but have a natural curiosity such as cats do, are loyal, although possibly stubborn at times,
There are also so many choices when you dress as a goat. Now you'll probably be the only goat at the party, but even if there is a farmyard goat, one of the three Billy Goats Gruff, and yet an additional one man dressed as Pan, so what? It's not like you are one of 5 Santa Clauses.Goat Costumes For Halloween And Beyond
