Super Parrot and Wonder Bird Looking Out for Trouble
|Costume type:||Costumes for Pets|
This homemade costume for pets entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Melissa, the 'Super Parrot and Wonder Bird' costume creator:
Pearl is Super Parrot and Anna is Wonder Bird. Both of these girls were adopted by me from a bird rescue in Colorado where I work called The Gabriel Foundation. They are both Umbrella Cockatoos that came from bad situations. Pearl was living in a cage barely bigger than she is and being fed dog food. Anna was living with two alcoholics and 16 other birds. They have adapted wonderfully to a spoiled life with my husband and me.
I came up with the idea for the costumes after making the Super Parrot one for Pearl and a dragon for Anna. I thought it might be fun to make four Justice League character costumes and dress up four Cockatoos for a group shot. Trying to get four Cockatoos to stand still long enough to get a picture proved to be impossible.
Both costumes, including the emblems, were hand sewn by me without any pattern. The only materials I used were fleece, embroidery floss, buttons, scissors, and a needle.
The girls love to dress up in their fleece costumes to keep warm on colder days.
