Homemade Peacock Child Costume

Each year my child challenges me with a new costume idea. This year after a trip to the zoo she decided that she must be a PEACOCK! So off I went to figure out how to turn her into the beautiful bird.

To mimic the birds bright blue body I purchased a body suit and painted it with a mix of green and blue metallic fabric paint. This required several coats, but turned out shiny and fabulous. I ordered the peacock feather on-line and to create the tail I hot glued the feather between two pieces of hard felt cut into a half moon. I attached, with hot glue again, elastic waist band so it would sit on her waist. I then created a fun skirt out of strips of tulle in shades of blue, brown, and green.

I purchased a paper mask, built the beak with Sculpty clay and painted it and added feathers. I finished off the homemade peacock child costume with tights and a pair of ballet slippers. The outfit turned out AMAZING and the massive peacock tail was a show stopper that drew attention where ever she went.

My daughter was determined to be a peacock this year for Halloween. So after searching online for a Homemade Peacock Girl's Halloween Costume Idea and not finding anything I liked I decided to make it myself.

To make the feathered tail I first cut out a piece of cardboard to the width of my daughters back and laced ribbon through it so she could wear it as a belt so it can easily be remove for sitting or bathroom breaks. Then I hot glued about 75 peacock feathers in a fan pattern onto the back of the cardboard. I took a old hair clip that I already had and hot glued feathers on that.

I just finished it off with a royal blue tutu and black leotard and tight.Her costume was a big hit Halloween night but best of all she loved it.

For this homemade Peacock Halloween costume idea I bought over 500 peacock feathers online, hot glued them to ostrich feathers and then sewed and hot glued them to cardboard and then glued them to a fan. I covered my old corset in feathers and and old petticoat as well (for the skirt & shirt).

I cut slits in the peacock fan and sewed an old bra to it to make it stand straight behind my back. I glued rhinestones to ever part of the costume to finish it off.
