The Most Beautiful Peacock Costume

After much thought, my daughter decided she’d like to dress up in a peacock costume, and celebrate Halloween as her favorite animal. I almost fainted at first, but then I decided it would be a challenge. The funniest thing was seeing my husband’s face when I told him I needed about 90 peacock feathers. Then I wondered, “Now what?” I love crafts and every time I start a new project I have the ability to surprise my family.

Costume Instructions

I made the tulle skirt with short strips in the front and longer in the back to look like the long tail of the peacock. It took me 2 hours to do it.

For the tail feathers, I first cut the cardboard into a fan shape and I made two holes to pass an elastic belt through. Then I began to glue the feathers with hot glue, first the long, then the medium, and finally the small. I added some paint on the other side and some blue feathers to decorate.

The make-up was my favorite part. I think I even surprised myself that I was able to do it so well. My daughter was very happy and grateful. For me that’s the best reward!
