For my Halloween Peacock Costume I bought a witch costume to use as the dress. The witch costume had black feathers at the end of the sleeves and bottom of dress. I plucked out most of those and added some peacock plumage feathers. I had a blue ribbon that I glued green on top of and put that through the holes that lined the middle of the dress. I also added the ribbon to the bottom of the dress and at the end of the sleeves.
The hardest part to make was the tail. I bought 2 pieces of black felt. I stitched that together to make a pocket. I put my longest feathers in that first and glued and stitched those in. For the second layer I glued them to the first layer. I also added a light to the pocket that glowed on the feathers. To cover the felt pocket I used a peacock feather fan and glued that on top.
I added peacock eyes around the dress to add more detail then sprayed the dress with gold and blue glitter. For the mask I used a lot of plumage feathers and glued them around the mask. I put sword peacock feathers at the top and curved them and also added 3 peacock eyes on top. I had long blue fake eyelashes, blue shoes that I added peacock eyes to, and peacock earrings to tie it all together.
Doesn’t sound like it took to long but I spent a over a month figuring, fixing, and putting everything together.
I made this Homemade Peacock Halloween Costume for my daughter Payton this year. She is 10 and wanted to something original, so I made her a Peacock. I found some of the supplies at a local used clothing store and the blue, green and purple feathers at the craft store. I also found some sparkly Christmas decorations in blue, green and purple that I incorporated into the tail feather section. I then took some cardboard and laid out the feathers and other decorations until I had a design that I liked and one by one glued down all of the large feathers first then the smaller things to make a nice pattern.
I then took a belt that I also found at the used clothing store and attached it to the tail feather cardboard piece so that it would fit her around the waist. She can easily take them on and off of her waist with the belt so that she can get in and out of the car,sit down or walk in a tight space. I glued the individual blue, green and purple feathers down the side of her sleeves and legs. We put gloves over her shoes with the thumb and pinky finger removed for the feet.
We found the mask at a costume store and it all came together nicely.

This is Lydia, my 3 year old daughter. She is dressed in a Homemade Pretty as a Peacock costume. The costume is very simple to make and looks adorable. I got a royal blue long sleeved leotard and black tights. I found a handmade feather fan on eBay and pinned that the the back of the leotard.
For the little feathers on top of her head, I made them out of felt and pipe cleaners and hot glued them onto alligator clips and pinned them in her hair.
