I got this idea for a Homemade Flamingo Halloween Costume from a parrot costume but for me the parrot wasn’t absurd enough. I decided to play off my own natural attributes (be long and gangley) and opted to make a flamingo.
I work at a fabric store and we had this awesome pink fabric that had long thread like hairs covering it so I used that to create the leotard. Using a lighter pink fabric I created wings. Everything is lined in a pink boa. The beak was created using two foam sheets that I cut to shape and glued together along the top. I then glued the beak to the head dress I made and badda-bing-badda-boom you got yourself a flamingo.
