Duck Dynasty Miss Kay Costume

Kay Robertson has been with her husband Phil since she was fourteen and he was sixteen. Married since 1966, they have four sons-Alan, Jase, Willie and Jeptha. Over the years she has had her hands full trying to prevent them from spending all of their time outdoors. She also had her hands full during the early years of her marriage to Phil, as he was drinking and partying until he found G-d when he was 28.

One way she ropes them inside is with her cooking. Her recipes are loved by her family and they will do most anything as long as she cooks for them!

Miss Kay, as she is known to both family and friends, always has a dog named Jesse. When one Jesse dies, she replaces it with another who looks just like him.

Phil Robertson adores and reveres his wife. He has called her a <i>kind, gentle woman</i>, and tells his grandson not to marry a yuppie girl, but to find a kind, meek, sprited country girl who loves to eat bullfrogs! Of course, he is describing his beloved Miss Kay!

A fun couples costume for Halloween would be to go as Duck Commander Phil and his lovely wife, Miss Kay.

Here is how to put together your own Miss Kay costume.

A Brief Biography of Miss Kay

Miss Kay was born Marsha Kay Carroway. She and and Phil met when she was in the ninth grade and Phil was in the tenth, and by the age of 16 they were married.  Many people wonder if Miss Kay was pregnant when she married Phil.  She was pregnant with their first son in their senior year of high school, as she admitted in her 2014 autobiography. Her regret is that she had no one to talk to about her passionate feelings for Phil, and that left her vulnerable.

They had four sons-Alan, Jase, Willie and Jeptha. While their life on the show Duck Dynasty seems idyllic, their early years together most certainly were not.

An adorable apron!

After she graduated high school and moved with Phil to an apartment near Louisiana Tech University where Phil was slated to play football. While there, she did earn her GED.

After he declined to play in the NFL, Phil finished his college degree in health and physical education in 1969 and earned a Master's degree in 1974. During these years Phil drank and partied, causing a lot of grief to his family. It got so bad that Kay had to get a job at the bar where Phil spent most of his time just to keep an eye on him.

At one point during this bleak period of their marriage, he even kicked her and their three sons (Jep was not born yet) out of the house where they lived. Three month later, he came by, and cried for forgiveness, which was given.

Once Phil turned his life to G-d, things turned around for the family. Eventually he would build his Duck Commander business, along with his CEO son Willie, to the successful business it is today.

Miss Kay stood beside him every step of the way, working side-by-side with him in the business and keeping creditors at bay when money was owed. One way she kept the family together is with her cooking. Her boys just love anything she puts on the table!

Start With the Miss Kay Wig

Miss Kay has short dark hair that has a little bit of lift to it. Not quite a bouffant, but certainly not flat! It definitely has a Southern feel to it, as it should...she is from Louisiana. Since she has such a busy and active life, this short hairdo is just what she needs to wash and go.

Here is a some wig to top off your Miss Kay costume.

Less than five dollars!

This comes in black.

Add Some Padding

Kay is what you would call a "full figured woman".
She has spent her life in the kitchen and between age and tasting and eating her good food, she is no longer the slim woman she was when she met Phil as a young girl.

It doesn't mater to him, as he loves a woman who can cook and carries her Bible. Miss Kay does both. In fact, Phil regularly counsels his grandson to marry a homely woman who can cook over a pretty "Yuppie" woman who cannot.  After all, you are going to spend the res of your life eating her cooking-you should like it!

The Most Comfortable Costume You Will Ever Wear-Slacks and a Cowl Neck!

Miss Kay dresses for comfort. You cannot spend hours on your feet in the kitchen or chasing after four active boys with clothes that are too tight or need to be taken to the dry cleaner.  That is not how it is done in the woods!

These Alfred Dunner pants are just like the slacks Miss Kay wears. They come in all kinds of colors and lengths. There are petite sizes, plus sizes and everything in between. With the ease of an elastic waistband and side pockets, these comfortable slacks are perfect for your Miss Kay costume.

In many episodes of Duck Dynasty, you will find Miss Kay in a cowl neck sweater. Sweaters with this neckline offer comfort, as it is not chocking your neck like a turtleneck does. It is also stylish, and has more flair than a scoop neck or V-neck sweater. It comes in plus sized women, just like Miss Kay.   Phil likes a woman with meat on her bones, not skinny Yuppies like his sons married!

The Final Miss Kay Accessories

Miss Kay is known for her fantastic Southern inspired cooking. For her, cooking family favorites is an expression of her love for the, It is also a way bribe anyone in her family! All she has to do is promise to make a banana pudding or sweet potato pie and the job is completed. Her husband. Phil, thinks every woman should know how to cook squirrel brains, frogs legs and boudine!

Since she spends so much time in the kitchen whipping up her famous recipes, she is often seen wearing an apron. Here are some that are Miss Kay style!
This is under $10!

This is too cute!

Another accessory to add is a stuffed dog.  You see, Miss Kay name all of her dogs Jesse, and when one dies, she replaces it with exactly the same breed. She believes that way you are not grieving for the dog you just lost.

These potholders are just ducky!

Uncle Si's Ice Tea Unveiled at Duck Commander 500

Two big events happened over the past few days for Duck Dynasty fans.

The first was the running of the NASCAR Duck Commander 500 held at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas. The race, which was supposed to be held on Sunday but was postponed until Monday due to the wet weather, had several of the Duck Dynasty cast members in attendance there on Sunday signing autographs.

While there, fans were able to taste for the first time a new Duck Commander product, Uncle Si's Iced Tea. It is a ready to drink, naturally brewed beverage which is all natural-no synthetics, no powders, nothing artificial. It will come in four different flavors:

  • Sweet
  • Un-Sweet
  • Peach
  • Half & Half (half lemonade, half iced tea)
It will be launched in a 16 ounce size and later in the spring it will be available in half-gallon and gallon sizes.

What do you think of this new Robertson product?  Will you be buying it?

The Women of Duck Commander Book-A Review of Their Lives With the Men of Duck Dynasty

It was no April's Fool joke...the long awaited biography of all five Roberston women arrived in bookstores and fans are devouring the contents.  For the first time, we are hearing from these women in a book of their own (except for Korie, she co-wrote the Faith and Family book with Willie), instead of just being a small part of the book.

Among the most riveting revelations is that of Lisa Robertson, the wife of oldest son, Alan.  She shares how she was molested by an extended family member from the age of seven until she was a teenager.  She sees that as the seed that made her feel that her purpose in life was to be a man pleaser, and that is what eventually led her to have an affair during the 1990's.

Even Miss Kay reveals the truth-she WAS pregnant with Alan when she married Phil at age sixteen.

If you are interested in seeing a short interview with the Duck Commander wives, you can watch one here.

Here is an audio version excerpt of the book, read by the women who wrote it.
