For Halloween 2010, my husband and I were determined to be something that "lit up." After throwing out the obvious Christmas tree ideas, we settled on a Homemade Peacock DIY Adult Costume Idea!

My super talented mom made our outfits out of blue lamé and green stretchy dance fabric. For the tail I picked out the thickest, sturdiest cardboard I could find, cut it out, and began painting. We attached them with straps, like backpacks. The glow sticks we bought online in bulk. Our fiber optic hair pieces were also bought online. Make-up and hair were done by me; my first ever fauxhawk attempt. We were a huge hit. Someone asked us if we were "The Disney Light Parade," which I thought was hilarious!

P.S. I give one warning to anyone wanting to attempt a large wingspan (or tailspan in our case): it is VERY HARD maneuvering in a large crowd of people!

I had this giant box and didn't know what to do with it. Since I'm vegan, I wanted to make a peacock costume without actually using any feathers. I ended up just cutting out individual feathers from the cardboard and taping them together with strong duct tape and bamboo garden poles. This allowed them to be flexible enough to bend.

I got a blue dress, green tights, and secured the whole thing to my back with two blue fabric straps. It really was easy construction. The headpiece is made from foam balls, painted and glittered, attached to wires, glued on a headband. It was a huge hit at NYC's Village Halloween Parade. I just did some facepaint, wore the costume like a backpack, and had my peacock!

I purchased peacock feathers online, used a black corset top to start with and sewed the feathers on individually. I used a piece of felt as the back by sewing snaps on the corset and the felt so the back/tail feathers could be removed and because the corset was a back closure it made it possible to put on and take off.

I purchased the tutu from etsy.com. Purchased the brown wig. I used a large hair clip and hot glued feathers and a jewel as a hair piece. I purchased a metal necklace piece and attached the feather.

Hi, this was my 2009 homemade peacock costume worn in Vegas. My girlfriend was a flamingo and I was a peacock. We used hot glue and more feathers than I can count to attach the feathers onto booty shorts, corset, and bra. I used peacock and blue ostrich feathers, as well as a cheap turquoise feather in the bodice. Also the head piece was made by deconstructing a clip and well... more glue.

My girlfriend and I wanted to be birds this year for Halloween. We picked the peacock and flamingo, just as y'all did. My question is how did y'all attach the tails and insure they were fixed on the shorts? Love the costume and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

So cute!

Corset
by: Anonymous

That's awesome! What kind of corset did you get? The one that is just for your torso, but doesnt cover breast and you wore a bra or a full corset? I can't tell from the picture. Thanks!

I used an old cocktail dress from a cruise when I was in High school. Bought some peacock feathers from a friend who's father had a peacock farm, made a broch, sewed some of the feathers to the bottom of the dress, put some up in my hair as the "tail" and glued one over my eye. Turned out way cute and got a ton of complements.
