This homemade costume for women entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Narin, the 'Peacock' costume creator:

Friends of mine had a peacock-themed wedding and every guest received one peacock feather at their table setting. At the end of the night, there were so many feathers left, so I got the idea to ask the bride and groom if I could take the leftovers to use for a halloween costume. I made the tail of the costume by using a glue gun to paste all of the feathers in a "fan" pattern to a piece of cardboard, which i covered with blue sequins cloth. I attached two pieces of blue ribbon on both sides of the cardboard, and tied them under my arm/over my shoulder to hold up the tail. I made the tank top by sewing the same sequins cloth onto an old tank top that I no longer wore, and then gluing more feathers onto the stomach. The skirt was made by cutting about 50 strips of black and blue tulle, and tying them into knots around a thick elastic band around the waist. I taped more feathers around a hairband for my head. To top the costume off, I used face paint to make my face look like a peacock, added rhinestones above my eyebrows, and taped feathers into the toe part of my shoes! The costume was a huge hit and cost me less than $20!

This is a very impressive costume! I remember the creator was collecting all the peacock feathers she was able to in order to create it years in advance. A lot of thought went into this costume and it turned out awesome!

This outfit is absolutely GORGEOUS! The colours on the sequined top match very nicely with the natural colours on the peacock feathers. The rhinestone makeup also goes very nicely with the overall peacock look. Overall, this outfit is the best one I've seen in the petition.
