How to Make a Peacock Halloween Costume

Making your own Halloween costumes can be a great way to get exactly what you want. It is also a great way to save yourself some money because stores can charge a lot of money for ready made Halloween costumes.

Whether you are a male or female, a Peacock costume can be bright colourful and fun idea.

To make the costume you will need 

Peacock feathers (available from many stores and also on-line)

A large hair comb slide or any slide you an attach feathers to

String

Needle and thread

A blue or turquoise top and trousers

     or

A white top and trousers

Blue or turquoise dye (only necessary if you have a white top and trousers)

Face paint

Boys.

Firstly you will need to find a blue top and trousers. It does not matter if they are the same shade of blue, as long as they are close. Alternatively you can have a blue top and green trousers.

If you can not find a blue top and trousers then you will need to buy a white or off white top and trousers and dye them. The colour will come out better if you can find off white.

Once you have dyed your top and trousers then you will need to attach your tail feathers. You can either bunch them up and attach them to the base of your trousers or you can attach them individually. You will need to sew them on one at a time.

Paint your face blue and your nose white. Use a damp sponge and apply the face paint with that.

Girls.

You can either go the same way as the boys or you can be slightly different.

If you want to add a little more glamour try substituting the trousers for hot pants and black tights. You can use black or denim hot pants to create a more sexy look. Wear a blue or turquoise vest instead of a long sleeved top. Add some feathers to a hair slide comb and attach it to the back of your head. This will create a very dramatic look.

If you are really daring then you could wear a turquoise basque or corset with hot pants and tights. This will definitely get you noticed.

You can really go to town on your eye make-up. Use liquid liner to elongate your eyes and you can use a whole array of eye shadow colours.
