Sexy Peacock Costume

After looking online for “sexy” Halloween costumes, I decided that they all looked the same and wanted to be something a bit more creative this year. I looked for peacock costume ideas online, but didn’t really like one in particular, so I decided to just put something together myself and hope it looked okay.

I started by buying real peacock feathers at Hobby Lobby for $1 each. I think I have about 12 in the tail. Just remember, the more you have, the heavier the tail becomes. I started out with a fan shaped piece of cardboard to which I fanned the feathers out and used a glue gun to attach the feathers to the cardboard. I knew that I would be tucking this under my bra in the back, so I glued a piece of material around the bottom part so it was comfortable lying flat against my back. I tucked it into the back of my bra and it stayed in place all night.

I bought peacock earrings on ebay for $5 and bought some extra feathers to make a garter and headband (not in the pic). I bought a cheap garter; spray painted it black and glued 4 feathers to it.

For my eye, I took a feather and cut it and used eyelash glue to attach it to my eyebrow. It worked great and stayed all night. The makeup I used is called the 120 Palette. This is the most vibrant eye makeup I have ever used and is $20 on ebay (wet the brush to get the brightest color). I added a few gemstones to my face and was ready to go. I hope you like it!

Last year for Halloween I handmade a peacock costume to wear. Later in the year I was going on a Super Hero costume and came up with the idea to turn my peacock costume into a "Peacock Blocker" costume. My motto was to Block the bad clearing way for the good.

For the tail, I ordered about 50 feathers online and arranged them in a tail formation and then hot glued them onto a wide black belt. This was very convenient because I could then take my feathers off when needed.

The shield was very easy as well. I simply cut a piece of cardboard into the shape of a shield, painted it, used a paint marker to write the motto, and used glue and glitter to snaz up the edges. I put two straps on the back of the shield to slip my arm through to carry for the night.

For the rest of the outfit, I just looked in my closet for the most cartoon character type stuff I could find like a glittery shirt and a blue wig.

The fun part of the night was going out and "Peacock Blocking". If I saw a girl being hit on a guy that she clearly didn't want to be bothered with I would make him move along clearing way for the good guys to come along.

My wife and I where looking for the most original costume for our daughter and we bumped into the peacock bird. Since that moment we decided to look for feathers and a fabric that matched the color of the bird.

Finally we found everything we neede and the hard and complicated part was to put the feathers together, so I came out with the idea of using a piece of foam and insert one by one and glue them and the same time add straps on the back and a belt.

A family member made the blouse and skirt, in the end we like the result. It looks very original and this is a 100% Homemade Peacock Bird Costume. Hope you like it.
