The most prominent part of the Kurent’s outfit is the head-mask which also makes Kurents different from each other. The ones on the Ptuj field have the ears made of turkey or goose feathers and horns made of straw or wood wrapped in leather and decorated with colourful paper flowers and ribbons. On the other hand the ones from Haloze and villages on the Drava field wear genuine cow horns and ears of either sackcloth or leather. The facial part made of leather is sewn in the head-mask bearing holes for eyes and mouth. The teeth are made of white beans threaded on a string.A rather long tongue is made of fabric or leather. Kurents wear a coat of sheep skin girded about with a chain with five cow bells, high boots and red or green knitted socks. A wooden club that Kurents brandish in their hands is covered with hedgehog skin at one end. The outfit of Kurents is called “kurentija” and is nowadays made of sheep skin. However Kurents from the village of Okič in Haloze, for example, have coats made of rabbit or even goat skin.
During the first decades of the 20th century, the “kurentija” was made by countrymen themselves of materials available at home: old fur coats, rabbit or goat skin, and other. The description of Kurent, found in the register from the end of the 19th century in the village of Markovci, describes Kurent as “if he has just escaped from Hell and made friends with the Devil itself”. He wore a sheep skin inside-out, while the facial part of the head-cap was made of old leather and was furry behind. On the top, there were horns made either of leather or of felt, and on the tips were attached goose feathers. Kurent had one big cow bell tied to his back with which he announced himself from far.
