This peacock costume was incredibly easy to make. It was comfortable and unique. The top is simply a blue tank top with a black half shirt over it to stay warm. I wore peacock feather earrings and a necklace. I did my makeup in bright colors. The skirt took about 2 hours to make. I just sewed three black boas onto a stretchy skirt. The tail was the funnest to make. I took a bunch of pictures of the process of making it. I used cardboard to hot glue peacock feathers onto. The feather I bought on Amazon for about $16 for 100 of them. I bought a few extra feathers at Hobby Lobby that were a bit longer so that I could accent the top of the tail. I covered a black belt in feathers and used a stapler to attach the tail to the belt so that I could wear the tail without putting straps on it that go around your arms like I saw with other DIY peacock tails.

|I covered my black belt in feathers. I just cut the stem off them and glued them to the belt|
|I started layers the feathers on the back. Before I got to the bottom I stapled the belt to the tail. Then finished layers the feathers until the whole tail was covered.|
