Johnny-O Turkey

There will be an endless stream of turkey puns at the family table this Thanksgiving. Johnny-O Turkey can join you in the flesh, complete with his red gobble and yellow turkey feet. Encourage your family members to fill up on mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce, because you wouldn’t want them eating you or the rest of your turkey friends.

“There is always something to be thankful for.”

You’ve probably never longed to become a turkey, but after one look at this deliciously golden cooked turkey costume, you’ll be dreaming about it day and night. March to the beat of your own drumstick when you put on this turkey suit and strut about at the Halloween or family Turkey Day gathering. Even if you wouldn’t be caught eating poultry, why not try out being a turkey for a day?

“Keep calm and gobble on.”

Native American Warrior

Whether you’re putting on a play of the first Thanksgiving or simply celebrating Native American culture, stylish fringe will look great on you.

“Seek wisdom, not knowledge.”


Channel your inner Pocahontas and gather the rest of your tribe for the greatest costume event you’ve ever experienced. Bring on the teepee celebrations, rain dances and any other jigs you care to dance while you’re out and about. Everyone looks great in fringe and beadwork, so why not try out this look for Halloween or Thanksgiving?

“Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?”

Thanksgiving Group Costume Ideas

Thanksgiving wasn’t always about Turkey Trots and stuffing your face in front of a football game. Back in 1621, the Pilgrims and Native Americans made a treaty and celebrated the harvest together. The two groups learned they could rely on each other and sat down to enjoy a meal together. The pilgrims gave thanks many times in formal celebrations throughout the year.

Gather each family member and have them pick a favorite character from the first Thanksgiving. From the pilgrims to the Native Americans, everyone can dress up as a stylish figure of the past. And don’t forget the turkey. Dressing up in costume will only enhance the experience of sharing the traditional Thanksgiving meal together.
