Categories:Halloween Costumes, Animal Costumes

This homemade costume for women entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

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

I created this costume by making a simple tutu out of various colors of tulle, glueing peacock feathers all over a corset and getting long peacock steams from my local zoo and attaching them to the back of my corset in a fan-like shape!! I finished off with some matching makeup, black rights and cute black boots! I was the ONLY peacock out for Halloween and got many compliments on this costume! People were even asking to take pictures with me which was very flattering :) Trying to top it this year will be hard :)

Im actually making one for halloween this year. And the most difficult spot is covering the boob section. How did you do yours?

I ended up buying A bag of black feathers and gluing them in any areas that weren't covered....did this all the way around and worked well! I also bought a mass quantity of feathers from eBay and got the long ones from my local zoo for $1.00 a piece found this to be cheaper than the craft store. And for the back I found a cheap $1.00 kids wooden mask thats attached to a stick at the craft store and glued the long feathers in a fan shape to the mask and filled the rest in with black feathers..and then stuck it in the back of my corset...it stayed wonderfully and I was also able to remove it when I needed to with no issues!. My email is mandeemor21[at]gmail.com if you have any other questions :)
