I was inspired to make the peacock Halloween costume by a mask that I have. It was so much fun and I received a lot of compliments on it!

To start, I found a blue dress that was the right color, then added gray tights. To make the tail I took a fan and used the hot glue gun to attach approximately 60 peacock feathers (which I ordered online). I used some fabric in a similar color to tie the fan around my waist. I designed it in a way to wear the tail either up or down.

I covered the back of the fan with some extra fabric (to cover some of the messiness from the glue). I made a hat out of felt, glued feathers to it and attached a feather “fan” on top. You can’t see them in the photo.

For the feet I took a pair of rubber gloves, pulled the thumb and pinky finger into the glove, stuffed the other three fingers with fiberfill and pulled the gloves snuggly around a pair of my ballet flats.

I decided to do make-up instead of the mask after I finished making the costume; the makeup was easier to do than dealing with a mask all evening.
