Bird / Turkey Costume Ideas
Bird / Turkey costume ideas can be used by young girls and boys as well as by adult men and women for Thanksgiving, Halloween parties and other fancy costume dressup parties such as Christmas, 4th of July, St. Patrick’s, Valentine’s, New Year’s, Easter and more.
Turkeys are symbolic of Thanksgiving but they are great costumes for mahy other occassions as well. and even the appearance can be imitated through these costumes. With a little imagination and some originallity these favored cosumes can be made at home.
The turkey costume ideas are generally not used, but Thanksgiving often provides an opportunity to dress up as a turkey. It can be made at home using a garbage bag and lots of brown paper. A little white paper along with a string or bowtie is useful in completing the turkey costume. The structure of the turkey’s legs can be prepared with the brown paper.
White paper is glued to the ends for making it look like bones attached to the legs. Holes are cut out in the garbage bag for free movement of the arms and legs. Once the outfit is prepared, the individual can step into it and the bag is then stuffed with brown paper.
To become the center of attraction at a Thanksgiving or Halloween party, one can use the turkey costume ideas and dress up in an adult outfit that looks like the original turkey. It consists of a one piece polyester outfit in brown, orange and tan colors.
A costume body is included and it has wings constructed on the back. Legs with shoe covers are also provided and the body has a long neck that makes an individual look like the bird.
A turkey hat is placed over the head and it has eyes, ears and a beak to resemble a real turkey but much cuter. People using this outfit can wear white shirts under the costumes. However, the individual using this type of a costume cannot stand straight because to look like a turkey requires a bent forward posture.
Due to the increasing popularity of the bird during Thanksgiving, designers are utilizing the turkey costume ideas for manufacturing very authentic looking costumes. While some outfits cover the entire body, others only cover parts of it.
Character hoods can be purchased from costume showrooms and used along with the outfits. Thus, dressing up as a turkey is rapidly gaining popularity among all ages and along with it, the availability of options is ever increasing.
