Christmas Nativity Characters

Christmas Nativity Characters

The nativity is a traditional play carried out in many Christian churches and schools around Christmas time. The story outlines the birth of Jesus and the anticipation around his birth.

This story is made up of many significant characters: Mary, Joseph, the Wise Men, the Inn Keepers, the Donkey, the Angel and the list goes on! It is essential these characters can be recognised and this is largely shown through their costumes.

Joseph was a carpenter who was quite poor. Shepherd costumes are popular in the nativity for Joseph, the shepherd's and the inn keepers. Shepherd costumes are available in both children and men sizes. Optional accessories such as a shepherd's staff/crook or beard are available in our on-line store and are the perfect finishing touches to your shepherd costume.

Mary was the mother of Jesus. For most of the story Mary is pregnant and travelling to Bethlehem on a donkey. The colour blue is associated with Mary, and therefore many Mary costumes are blue and white. No nativity would be complete without a donkey and here at Elliot's we have donkey costumes, kits and accessories so you're spoilt for choice!

As well as the donkey, many schools include other farm animals because Jesus was born in a barn! Have a look at our wide range of animal costumes to make your nativity play unique!

The Angel Gabriel appears a few times in the nativity announcing the pregnancy to Mary and is present at the birth of Jesus . Angel accessories and costumes are not scarce but for the nativity you want something classy. A halo, white sparkly dress and some feather wings would make the perfect angel for the nativity! Have a look at our range of stock and create your perfect angelic character.
