At Kennywood we had a civil war section of the hunt and the costumes we wanted were out of our budget. Some one gave me some advise to start searching vintage shops and militia posts. When you leave the city areas, all them rumors you hear about PA are true. I got very lucky and was able to pick up parts for clothing here and there at these locations. As for canteens and hats were all bought new and aged, just about every one preferred the boot covers (it was cold), and every thing else was covered in blood. What was really cool about these costumes is that every year they looked and smelled more authentic, lol .
