The holiday season is finally here, and it’s time to deck the halls! One of the most iconic symbols of Christmas is Santa Claus. But have you ever stopped to think about what he looks like? A Santa suit is a suit worn by someone portraying the legendary character Santa Claus. The modern American version of this suit can be attributed to Thomas Nast for Harper’s Weekly magazine, although Sundblom has also been credited with standardizing the western image of Santa in his advertising work for The Coca-Cola Company. This type of Santa hat was designed by Haddon Sundblom and became popularized after appearing on televised commercials during that era.
Want to know what this famous Santa Claus looks like? You’ve come to the right place. I’ll introduce you to one of the most iconic symbols of Christmas: a Santa suit. A Santa outfit is a suit worn by someone who portrays the legendary character, Santa Claus. The American version was created and introduced in “Harper’s Weekly” magazine in the late 1800s.
A Santa suit is a special kind of clothing because it signifies someone who is generous and giving out gifts such as toys, candy or other treats at Christmas time! It helps make some people believe that there really might be someone like Santa Clause watching over them; however, they don’t know exactly how he looks like so I made my own interpretation of what he could look like in this Santa hat.
As a child, I always wanted to know how Santa Clause looked at night when delivering all those presents around the world! So here is an illustration as to how people might have imagined him looking based on many different illustrations from various artists throughout history.
In order to create the suit that Santa Claus wears in movies and advertisements today, many different designers have their own ideas of what they should wear. Some people believe Santa hat is a furry hat with jingle bells on it and some people believe Santa hat is just a red cap with white fur trimming around it like this one.
The first known depiction of Father Christmas was an illustration from 1850 called “A New-year’s Present” created by John Leech for London magazine Punch. The cartoon showed the elderly St Nicholas handing out gifts at his home at Santaland near the North Pole where we can see reindeer pulling sleighs full of toys among other things.
In 1853, the illustrations in Harper’s Weekly by Thomas Nast helped to establish a popular image of Santa Claus as an elderly man with white hair and a beard dressed in a red suit trimmed with white fur.
Nast was the first artist to portray Father Christmas this way. He became well-known for his depictions of “Santa” from 1850 until he died on January 13th, 1902. One of his most famous images is that of ‘The Night Before Christmas,’ which shows St Nicholas climbing down the chimney while being aided by reindeer who are pulling him up using ropes tied around their necks.
In 1873, a poem called “A Visit From St. Nicholas” was published anonymously in The Troy Sentinel newspaper and later reprinted by Harper’s Weekly on December 23rd of that year. This image has often been used as a design for Christmas cards, posters, postcards, and wrapping paper from the 1870s onward. In 1919 this illustration was named “Santa Claus”. It is unclear whether Nast or his assistants designed it based upon their own experiences with children at the time, but according to one biography of Thomas Nast, he had modeled Santa Claus’s outfit after Dutch settlers in New York who dressed up as elves and went around giving gifts during Christmas time.
