I really enjoy Halloween and getting dressed up every year. This time I had a bet from a friend when I had asked what I should be this year. His suggestion….be a Bird!

So I started thinking about a Homemade Chicken Halloween Costume and I started with a 1 piece gymnastics suit for my body suit (it was stretchy material). I sewed it on by hand, the white feather boas around the body. Found various items at Salvation Army – a hat in which I dyed yellow and glued 2 Styrofoam balls for the eyes and added more craft feathers.

I also got the tie and long yellow socks for leggings at the store. I wore rubber gloves over my flip flops for the feet. Added some white paint and ta dah, I was a happy dancing chicken.
