Good Tom Turkey disguises include Elsa from "Frozen," Dorothy from "The Wizard of Oz," minions from "Despicable Me" and Santa Claus. Many of the best ideas for disguising Tom Turkey are based on pop culture.
Elsa, from the hit animated film "Frozen," is a great Tom Turkey disguise because of her popularity amongst children since the film was released in 2013. Her distinct features, such as the blond locks on her head that curl into a braided ponytail and her blue dress, make the disguise unique. She also provides a great narrative, as her magical freezing powers can protect Tom Turkey.
Dorothy from "The Wizard of Oz" has a memorable look that any child is sure to recognize and love. Her dress is blue, although a bit shorter than Elsa’s, and she has a pair of braids on the sides of her head that are adorned with a ribbon on top of her head. This disguise gives the turkey a comical yet adorable girlish look.
The minions from the movie "Despicable Me" provide a simple disguise that is easy to design. The only thing needed to draw into the disguise is yellow skin, a pair of blue overalls, and a pair of glasses onto the turkey’s eyes to make the disguise complete and believable.
Santa Claus is a simple and easily identifiable disguise that goes well on Tom Turkey during the Christmas season. In addition to the red Santa suit, consider adding an extra layer of white paper cutouts under Tom Turkey’s beak to represent Santa’s big white beard.
