Here’s what I ended up looking like for a animal themed costume party. I came as a peacock.
I managed to find 40 peacock feathers for sale on eBay for less than $9 postage included – bargain!
I made the tulle tutu by sewing about 5 layers to a big piece of elastic than attached feathers on felt with my trusty glue gun.
I bought some shoulder pads and added more feathers and a sprinkle of beads and glitter which I just pinned on to a shrug.
The back tail was made by attaching feathers to a piece of stiffened material and pinned on.
