He may have been the stepfather of the Messiah, but Joseph was a simple carpenter, which is why this Joseph Deluxe Adult Costume, which includes coat, robe and headpiece, has a simplistic elegance. The beautiful light blue gown has a white rope belt and decorative brown accents. The light brown robe has decorative brocade trim. The white headpiece is accented with brocade and blue fabric. Joseph traveled with his wife, Mary, to Bethlehem to be counted in the census. It is there that Mary went into labor. With no rooms available at inns, Joseph took her to a barn, where Jesus was born. He is instructed in dreams to take Mary and the baby to Egypt to escape murderous King Herod, and, after Herod's death to return. Don this outfit for a live nativity scene or Christmas play. Staff, sandals, wig and beard sold separately.
