A word from Nicole, the 'Peacock' costume creator:
My 10 year old daughter is wearing this peacock costume. The idea came from just asking her what she wanted to be for Halloween. Once she told me I thought about it for a while on how to make it interesting and stand out. I used, peacock feathers, wire, a Styrofoam ball, a lot of glitter, different colored tulle, elastic, hot glue, McDonald's glasses, black felt, velcro and 4 battery operated lights from a craft store to make this costume. For the fan, I put the feathers into the Styrofoam ball and stabilized it with the wire. I then covered the wire with felt and put glitter on the back side of it.I used elastic to make straps for her arms and waist. I also used 2 sets of lights and added them to the fan. For the skirt, I cut the different colored tulle and tied it to another piece of elastic. I glued more peacock feathers around the waist. Another 2 sets of lights were glued on the inside of the skirt. For the glasses, I used McDonald's glasses that came in a happy meal and glued glitter to them to make it go with the costume. I hot glued 2 feathers to the glasses. For her shirt I glued MORE feathers to the neck and added black glitter to the front of her shirt. She looked simply stunning!!
