As I've wanted to be a peacock for years, I finally took the plunge and went for this homemade peacock Halloween costume idea this Halloween! I ordered over 200 feathers online and worked day in and day out for three weeks straight. It was certainly a hit at every party I attended so Ill share a quick how-to on the process...

On a piece of cardboard, I glued all my feathers one by one so that I could slide the piece into my corset top and secured it by gluing small ribbons on each. Surprisingly, they didn't get in the way like you would think! I tried to keep the feather spray more upward versus outward.

For the top, I glued feathers and feathers all over the front then for the breast area, I used a feather bushel that I purchased from Michaels. I flattened the bushel out and then glued one on each side, then placed more peacock feathers over the bushel.

For the bottom, I purchased strung feathers from a high fashion fabric store (this was pretty expensive so prepare yourself if you're going to try this one next year) then glued more peacock feathers over the strung feathers.

I wore some high wasted black spanx for my bottoms so my outfit actually looked like it was all one piece. This helped me tremendously as restroom breaks would have near impossible if it was all one piece.

Finally, I threw on some never-to-fail fishnets, satin elbow-length gloves, pinned a bushel of feathers in my hair and wore some fantastic feathered lashes! Again, everyone loved it and it was totally worth all the hard work I put into it. I'm already thinking about what I'll do for next year!!!

So I was looking on here and after seeing the amazing costumes I was inspired. I knew I wanted to be something different so I decided on a homemade peacock Halloween costume idea.

I started with a half circle of cardboard and painted it shades of blue and green. Then I took 50 30" peacock feather (purchased from e-bay) and hot glued about 25 on each side. Then I glued a piece of felt on one side (the side that would be against my back), and I glued regular green and blue feathers (from Michaels) onto the other to hide the mess of glue and tail ends. I laced ribbon through so I could tie it around my waist.

I made feather earrings, a feather necklace, and a hair piece.

I work in a school so I wore two different outfits. One G rated for school and a sexier one for a party.

The school one had a paisley top, black leggings, and black gladiator type sandals. I put two blue hair scrunchies around my ankles and a feather in each tail. Crazy eye make up and blue accessories!

The sexier one I wore a blue cocktail dress (I glued feathers to felt and safety pinned them to the breast part of the dress), fishnets, and black heels.

Got a ton of compliments on this homemade peacock Halloween costume idea. Hope you like it toooo!
