Beginner in Massachusetts looking to get into show tumblers.

I've been keeping fancy pigeons as well as a few rollers for three years now. unfortunately, due to where I live I always experienced really heavy losses to birds of prey. On one morning I will never forget I also lost all of the birds in my loft to some animal that had managed to sneak in and out during the night. I've decided that I would like to get back into the hobby but will stick with only one breed and they will not be allowed outside for extended periods of time. this means I would be keeping birds for show and not for flight. I've chosen the turkish tumbler because I really like the looks, my favorites are the ones in these videos:

I like the ice colors of the pigeons and dark bars as well as the rusty collored chest on them. My question would be, are there any people out there who breed strictly for show and looks? And what would these birds be known as? Any people on here breed strictly for show?

I just read a few posts about takla colors. I also really liked altinabas (golden heads), miro, miski, but the videos I posted were my absolute favorites. I've also noticed I prefer birds with clean heads and no crests.
