For Halloween 2011, we did a Peter Pan theme. My sister was our Chief Eagle Feather. This was a hoot to put together!
She wore a long-sleeved tan shirt, green pants and moccasins (all found at a thrift store – $10). I made the neck piece out of blue and yellow felt, pinned underneath her collar. I had to watch the movie/cartoon several times in order to get the dimensions accurate.
Her gloves were made from simple white fabric, traced around her hand and sewn. I added the fringe using more strips of white fabric, glued to the side of her glove.
For the headdress, I used a Viking helmet we already had (and used in our Zurg costume a few years ago), taped dark blue and pink paper to the front, and cut out about 50 feathers (from large to medium to small) out of white poster board. I colored the tip of every feather with a black marker and drew a line up from the bottom of each one to mirror an actual eagle feather. I taped each one on to the colored paper. That made it light enough to wear around all night.
We added a black wig, braided, and white face paint stripes on her cheeks. She looked SO great, just like the cartoon!
