|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Jessica, the 'Peacock' costume creator:
I was the one wearing my costume. I was looking to buy a costume, but was not impressed with the product commercially available, so I decided to make my own in a representation of the real animal. I have spent 3 months making it using over 4 ounces of sequins, 400+ full sized feathers, plus an additional 20+ eyes for the bra and skirt. The tail is fully functional, with an up and down, open and close hinge-pulley system with spider wire and sliding metal plates, so that I could fit threw doors when the tail is down, also to bring the tail up with no fuss.
