Which Santa Suit Is Right For You?
When deciding on which Santa Suit to purchase there are two basic things you must take into consideration. Firstly, how you are going to use your Santa suit and secondly, how much is your Santa Suit Budget? How you are going to use your Santa Suit will affect how much wear and tear the costume must withstand and how realistic your Santa Suit needs to look. Your budget on the other hand, may ultimately determine the Santa Costume you choose.

Generally speaking, the higher the price, the higher the quality of the fabric and other materials used to make the Santa Suit. A Santa Suit with a pullover jacket will be less expensive then one with a Zipper Jacket. Nevertheless, a Santa Suit with a Zipper Jacket will be easier to put on and take off, especially if you are going to use a Santa Belly. Another point to keep in mind is some Santa Costumes come with a Santa Wig and Beard Set. However, most better and deluxe quality Santa suits and Santa Costumes require the Wig and Beard Set be purchased separately.

Outlined below are some of the most popular ways in which Santa costumes are utilized. Below the description are our Santa Suit suggestions.

Far Away Santa
This Santa will typically make an appearance once a year. He will never get up close and personal with anyone. His main purpose is for the kids to get a quick glimpse of Santa running around outside delivering presents on Christmas Eve. Because he is always seen from a distance, this Santa does not need to get caught up in detail. A basic Santa Suit, beard and wig set and Gift Sack should do the trick.
For this type of Santa, we recommend the following Santa Costumes:

Deluxe Plush Santa Suit

Deluxe Plush XL Santa Suit

Adult Office Party Santa or Halloween Costume Party Santa
This Santa makes his annual appearance at the company Holiday Party or Halloween Costume Party. The Office Party Santa gets a little more face time with people then the Far Away Santa. He is usually interacting and entertaining a "Grown-Up" crowd. He needs to be fairly convincing, but in this case, most friends and colleagues will already know the man behind the Santa Costume.

For this type of Santa, we recommend the following Santa Costumes:

Deluxe Plush Santa Suit

Deluxe Plush XL Santa Suit

Deluxe Velvet Santa Suit

Deluxe Velvet XL Santa Suit

Retail Store Santa
The Retail Store Santa is one who spends the few weeks before Christmas attracting customers, handing out candy canes and offering a jolly "Ho Ho Ho" to busy Holiday shoppers. Since this Santa will spend a great deal of time in his Suit, it must be durable, easy to wear and most of all cleanable. Since he will be interacting will children of all ages, his Beard and Wig should be realistic and his overall appearance should be convincing.

For this type of Santa, we recommend the following Santa Costumes:

Deluxe Velvet Santa Suit

Deluxe Velvet XL Santa Suit

Ultra Velvet Santa Suit

Ultra Velvet XL Santa Suit

Crimson Imperial Santa Suit

Visiting Santa or Photo Op Santa
The Visiting Santa or Photo Op Santa is the Santa most children will believe is the real Santa. He is the one who will ask if you’ve been naughty or nice. He is the one who listens to the "Wish List" and the one who will be tested by Children sitting on his lap. It is imperative this Santa look perfect for all those photographs that will be cherished forever. This Santa should have a deep, rich, velvety red suit. He needs white gloves and glasses and a big Santa Belly. If this Santa hasn’t grown his own Beard, he should get a high quality Beard and Wig set and apply it with great care.

For this type of Santa, we recommend the following Santa Costumes:

Ultra Velvet Santa Suit

Ultra Velvet XL Santa Suit

Crimson Imperial Santa Suit
