Since the dawn of human kind, men have always worn costumes. In their most primitive form, men were part of hunter-gatherer societies in which the male’s role was to go out into the wild and hunt down the prey that would later feed their family. Ingenious techniques were developed in order for these men to be able to sneak up on their unsuspecting victims. One of the easiest tricks was to blend in with their prey by disguising themselves with paint, mud, plants, leaves or anything that would make them blend in with their surroundings. Later on, these disguises became more elaborate Costumes using animal furs, feathers, bones, etc.
