Halloween calls for an exciting costume. This write-up takes you through the steps of making a peacock costume for girls and boys.
One of the most important elements of a Halloween party is the costume that you will wear. Although Halloween is all about a spooky factor, a lot of outfits are becoming more and more creative. There are many styles and designs, and the peacock costume is one of the most popular ones.
If you want to make an impression this year, then choose a beautiful peacock-inspired outfit. Many stores have different styles and designs of this type of costume and some stores even stock them in kids' sizes. You can choose from a jumpsuit or playsuit-like sleek outfit which are made from satin with a peacock pattern on them.
These patterns on the fabric in beautiful sea green and electric blue colors look very realistic. Girls can even don a sequined corset and skirt and attach a tail at the back. Wearing a crown or tiara made of feathers along with a mask will also look amazing.

Homemade Costumes

If you are thinking of making your own costume this year, then all you need are a few essential items from your wardrobe and some craft supplies. One of the biggest advantages of making your own is that it will fit you well and it is inexpensive.

For Girls

Things required
  • Peacock feathers
  • Flexible wires
  • Fabric glue
  • A turquoise or electric blue top
  • Sequined mini skirt
  • Stiff fabric

First, cut the stiff fabric into a fan-like silhouette. Attach the flexible wires onto the fabric to give it more stiffness. Take the feathers and glue them on the fabric and over the wire. Make sure that you attach the feathers in such a way that the fabric underneath cannot be seen.
Attach a long cord on both sides of the fan. You can then wear the blue sequined mini skirt with the blue top and tie the fan to your waist. This fan will act like a peacock tail and will give you a very dramatic look. Wear some contacts and apply blue eye liner and eye shadow to complete the look.

For Boys

Things required
  • Peacock feathers
  • Fabric glue
  • A long sleeved blue T-shirt
  • A navy blue pants

Attach the peacock feathers to your pants and T-shirt. Glue the individual feathers to the base of your pants and the sleeves of your T-shirt. Be careful while doing this and make sure that the feathers do not overlap.
You can also wear a mask made of feathers to complete the look. You can choose to either purchase it, rent it, or even make your own costume. So, forget about the same old ghoul costume this Halloween and slip into something more exotic and colorful.
