Thanksgiving Costumes: Traditions with a Fun, Festive Twist

November 9, 2011

Thanksgiving is around the corner and families will continue old traditions and begin new ones. Some of the favorite Thanksgiving traditions include eating of Thanksgiving Feast, participating in breaking the turkey’s wishbone and giving thanks around the table. Sports fans usually enjoy an eventful game of football, too! Make this year one to remember by spicing up your old Thanksgiving traditions with a new twist. Thanksgiving costumes can really bring a festive feel to your dinner table while bringing the holiday’s beginnings to the present. The entire family can dress in an assortment of traditional Pilgrim costumes and Native American Indian costumes to bring the first Thanksgiving Day to life.

Our selection of Pilgrim costumes is available for men, women, boys and girls. Inspired by colonial wardrobe styles of the 17th century, early American settler costumes for males will include a brown, gray or black long-sleeved top with white cuffs, white round collar, cropped pants and a belt. The colonial pilgrim costumes for females will generally include a long sleeved black, brown or gray dress with white cuffs, long white apron, round white collar and a classic prairie bonnet. It brings an authentic pioneer appearance to bring the harvest season to life. For the crafty ladies looking for a DIY Pilgrim Costume, try out our Women’s Pilgrim Costume Kit. It includes the white prairie bonnet, apron, wrist cuffs and white round collar.

Be sure that part of the family also dresses in Native American Indian costumes to complete the scene. With so many different styles, there is something for everyone in the family. Men and boys can choose from Indian Warrior, Native American Brave, Tribe Chief and Cherokee Warrior costumes. They generally include a faux suede or faux buckskin top and pants with fringe accents. Other Native American Indian accessories can enhance a costume such as a long black wig, feather headdress, tomahawk, bow with arrows and moccasins. Women and girls can choose from a variety of Indian Princess, Native American Girl and Tiger Lily costume styles.

If you are looking to bring a more comical presence to your Thanksgiving celebration, try a turkey costume. We carry a few different Turkey Costumes for adults and kids. The Turkey Costume is easily recognizable with its brown, soft fleece jumpsuit, yellow beak with red gizzard, and the colorful turkey tail feathers.
