In 2010 I was a Peacock. To make the Homemade Peacock Costume I took an old prom dress and tailored it down to be shorter. I cut in darts into the bottom of the dress and added in more fabric to make the dress kick out a bit. I created a tutu by using black tool and a ribbon for the waistband (if you want directions on how to make a tutu go to YouTube, lots of how-to videos there). I wore the tutu under the dress to make it kick out more.

Then I made another tutu where there was a lot of black, green, and blue tool. I wore that on my backside to make the colors stand out more in the back and make the backside kick out more. I made the Peacock feathers by buying home décor feathers from Michaels Craft store. I bent the stick part of the feather around a black thick waisted belt (which I wore backwards so it was a solid black on the front side, not a belt buckle). I used 5 peacock feathers.

To cover the stick part of the feathers, I wrapped it in tool (so you wouldn’t see it in the back). I made a necklace thing out of extra fabric. I made the earrings out of extra peacock feathers. The makeup was the MOST fun! I found feather fake eye lashes and really did up the eye make up!

My daughter was a Peacock for Halloween. I purchased peacock feathers by bulk online and then cut them down to size and then glued them to a child sized small backpack (I cut the outside of the backpack off and used the part that included the shoulder straps), then I attacheed a piece of cardboard to give it some stiffness to glue and hold the feathers. I covered the feather steams with a piece of teal sparkly fabric . Then on the back side I hot glued a hand held feather fan (also purchased online).

She got so many compliments on her Homemade Peacock Costume. I searched for a peacock costume for my daughter but nothing I found had actual peacock feathers so I decided to make my own and this is what I came up with. Enjoy!

My costume is a Homemade Peacock Costume! Absolutely love being different so I had to go all out and make my own. The one I admired online was $200! So after I seen that price, I said no thanks and had to do it myself! So here is what I came up with.

Feathers were super easy to apply to the corset and then I added to the tutu for the girl accent. The tail was simply 3 feathers and a bow which was just like the one I wanted to order online. Hope you like it! This year, I'm going to be a flamingo and my bestfriend is going to be a Macaw. The costumes are in the making as we speak! Pictures will come after this Halloween as well!

I wanted to make my daughter something unique for Halloween, so I came up with this peacock costume! I purchased a plain black leotard and sewed a feather boa around neck and wristbands. I also sewed two peacock feathers on bust area and a sequin band running down the front. For skirt I made a tutu of black and turquoise tulle. For large back feather, I cut a large half circle out of cardboard, painted it black and hand glued black feathers to the entire board. I stuck actual peacock feathers around the top of the board so they would stick up and also placed a few throughout. Hairpiece is a black feather sewed on to an alligator clip.
