There is little more majestic than the sight of the great bird of prey and symbol of the land of the free taking wing and flying high over the vast purple mountains, soaring and representing to all of us the glorious freedom that comes with the power of flight. The iconic and noble crown, piercing eyes, and powerful scree reminds us all that the eagle sees all from its lofty position and keen eye sight.Of course, a small change in history might have significantly changed what kind of avian we idealized. After all, if one of the most genius men in history had gotten his way, our national bird would have been something quite a bit less noble-looking and likely would have dramatically changed the way we celebrated our Thanksgiving. Now, turkeys are certainly creatures that have that amazing semblance of power and can be pretty darned quick on their feet… but there is just something a little too odd about the dangling bit of blob falling off of their faces. Well, we can certainly be thankful for Franklin being outvoted!But, we can be even more thankful to be able to offer you the chance to step into the shoes-rather, the wings-of the proud national bird with this Eagle costume and mask. This spectacular costume is made of brushed knit flannel and faux fur and comprises a black flannel jumpsuit with flowing fabric along your arms to give you that wide wing span. Faux fur on the back gives you a feather-like appearance while the white fur along the back of the suit clearly presents your luminescent tail feathers. The lower legs are crafted of gold interlock fabric to give you the look of their strong legs, though you’ll want to wear your own shoes unless you have natural talons. The molded latex mask has a collar of faux white fur and the very same piercing eyes and powerful beak that we’ve all come to recognize. Receive your salutes and wide-eyed gazes as you soar into the room as, truly, the largest bird of prey anyone has likely seen!
