Prize-Winning Homemade Pretty Peacock Costume
I won second place with this costume, $200!
I had a satin blue dress I wore. I bought orange tights, and wore nude fish nets over them to give the legs texture. I also spray painted my shoes orange. I started off by making a feather bustle. I used an old belt and and tied tule and boas around it. I used blue, green and purple strips of tule and black boas. Then I cut the bustle to the appropriate length. Next I added a peacock tail which was several peacock feathers glued together, I could also pull the tail upwards to make it stand up.
The face was where it was at. I used eye lash glue to attach feathers to my face and used feather eyelashes. Next I used blue, purple and green eye liner to decorate my eyes. Put my hair in a mohawk and added feathers!
