The style of turkey costume is a crucial choice, as is deciding between a full-body costume or a fleece turkey hat.


When buying an adult fleece turkey costume, getting the size right is crucial. While one-size-fits-all adult fleece turkey costumes are available, costumes that are too large have unsightly saggy bits and the overall effect is ruined. When a costume is too small, it is uncomfortable for the wearer and does not have the same visual impact.

Shoppers can gauge the height of the wearer by using a tape measure and standing the wearer against a wall or door frame ensuring they stand fully erect. Measure from the feet to the top of the head, flattening the hair to get an accurate measurement.

Buy Used Costumes

For shoppers on a budget, buying a used adult fleece turkey costume is a great way to save money. Available is a range of sizes and styles, used turkey costumes are available in a nearly-new or gently used condition, many of them having only been worn a few times. If there are minor signs of wear and tear, these are easy to repair with a needle and thread. Costumes should be washed before they are worn to ensure there are no lingering odours or stains. To remove more stubborn stains use a pre-wash stain remover. Make sure the washing instructions are followed to prevent the fleece costume from shrinking. As when buying new costumes, be sure to select the correct size.

Choosing a Style of Fleece Turkey Costume

Adult fleece turkey costumes are available in a range of styles. Consumers can choose a traditional, live turkey costume, complete with wings and big, bold tail feathers. Another option for a live adult fleece turkey costume is a costume that completely covers the bottom half of the wearer but leaves the upper body free. The costume also has a hood attached that runs from the front of the costume, up the body, and sits over the head, imitating the head and neck of a turkey. Alternatively, shoppers can opt for a cooked turkey costume and dress as a beautifully basted, golden brown cooked turkey.

Another option when purchasing a fleece turkey costume is to simply purchase a turkey hat. Choose from a simple headband with a 2D fleece turkey on it, or a 3D turkey with legs tied together to keep the hat in place. Fleece cooked turkey hats are also available as well as fleece turkey head hats with eye holes.
