Sewing Head to Body
This is How it Looks Finished (and not worn)

So I bought my daughter some puppets and her favorite one was the flamingo. This poor flamingo puppet endured many, many, beak biting sessions from my 10 & 1/2 month old. She constantly slobbered all over this poor birds beak and I would have to hide him from her so he could dry out. So this year being my daughter's first Halloween, I decided to make her baby flamingo DIY costume. Why not dress her up as the very thing she loves, right?

So I don't sew really, unless it is to hem pants. I borrowed my sisters sewing machine and went to the fabric store. I did not have a pattern, I just looked at pictures of flamingos on the internet to get the basic shapes. For the head I just knew it needed to be cute so I looked at more pictures and looked at the puppet and came up with the head on my own. Of course I had to make it a girl so I added eyelashes.

Oh I also just safety pinned the whole bird to a hoodie sweatshirt so I could detach it and she could just wear the jacket for the season. I really had fun doing this, it was a good but fun challenge to come up with shapes and sewing them together, sometimes more than once.

I love it! I really want a flamingo costume for my 1 year old but can't find one reasonably priced, and I clueless when it comes to sewing. Would you consider selling that costume? If so, what would you charge for it? Please email me at solewnik@yahoo.com

My girls are 35 and 37 and I made their Halloween costumes until they were adults. Some were traditional-some weird. My 35 year old daughter has a baby now and has requested that I make her first costume. She wants a flamingo. I plan to use your pictures and verbal instructions to come up with my own version. Thanks for such a great idea - will post pictures when finished.

Since my other daughter wanted to be a Peacock my daughter thought to keep with a theme and she picked a Flamingo. I searched for a Flamingo Girl's Homemade Halloween Costume Idea but came up with nothing. I figured if I can make a peacock costume then I can make a flamingo too.

I started with a pink leotard, tights and a pink $2 tutu. I bought about 4 yards of dyed pink goose feathers. I sewed the feathers onto ribbon to make a detachable belt so my daughter would be able to use the tutu again for something else. I also sewed feathers onto the neckline of her leotard and made feathered arm cuff. I took an old hair clip that I already had and hot glued some pink feathers onto it.

For the nose I just made that out of old pink cardstock paper I already had. She absolutely loved it.

I bought a corset and glued all sorts of pink feathers (from Hobby Lobby) to the corset for this Flamingo Costume.

I bought pink tights from Target, and cut feather boas to glue in the inside of the tights, kind of making a skirt. I made the back of the “skirt” longer than the front feathers, so it would have a tail effect.

Made a necklace from ribbon and feathers. My wings were bought from Hobby lobby and were just wrapped around my arm since they were made out of wire.

Materials Needed:
Two bags of feathers from Hobby lobby (pink and assortment of pink colors)
Long feathers also bought from Hobby lobby in the floral dept.
Pink tights and Corset
Glue (hot glue or fabric glue)
Ribbon for the necklace
