Coolest Homemade Peacock Costume for a Girl

I made this Peacock Costume for my daughter Ashley. You start with a basic crushed velvet leotard and sew on approx. 5,000 sequins beads. Then hot glue the feathers in rows you can choose any color feathers you’d like. We ordered real peacock feathers. Take Styrofoam circle and paint it black, and attach Velcro to the the leotard in back (centered with your child) and also on the circle to attach.

Make holes in Styrofoam circle for each individual peacock feather. Add a pair of pantyhose and black shoes and your done. She did have a beautiful peacock feathered mask to go with this but she didn’t like the feel of the feathers on her face.

It took us 4 months to make it, but for people who can dedicate time to this costume, it shouldn’t take long at all. Hope you all like it.

  1. I think I’d choose to make it smaller by cutting the feathers down a bit and arranging them so my child could get through the door without breaking the feathers though. But wow, what a great idea!

  2. You seriously applied 5000 sequins by hand? That’s ridiculous! No wonder it took you 4 months. It did turn out well though.

  3. It looks awesome and my 5 year old daughter has been wanting a peacock costume. I hope my efforts turn out as good as yours.

  4. Thank you all for your comments. Yes, I did indeed sew on 5,000 sequins beads but it was fun. (lol I am currently sewing over 30,000+ to a mermaid costume my daughter wants this year). Anyways… I ordered my feathers from http://www.aliexpress.com they were from China. Her plume was 5ft x 5ft you can cut the stems down to size we just absolutely loved the longer stems vs. the little stems. hope that helps if you need more information please email me at dragonflymemories@aol.com

    thanks again for comments

  5. That is so amazing, what an incredible job you did, you should be so proud! I am also making a peacock costume for my 4 yr old, and was wondering how you attached the peacock feathers to the back, and approx how many feathers did you use? Thanks!
