I really am not a huge costume maker but myself and over 80 other amazing bloggers have joined forces today for the ultimate DIY Haloween Costume Blog Hop! Woot woot! But more on that later... I have a lot of fun ideas in my head for DIY costumes, but I rarely go through with actually making them! But I did once create a fun Witch Princess Costume and my mom created an amazing Flynn Rider costume! This year I wanted to create something fun and simple that would be perfect for a girl, tween, teen or even an adult! So I came up with this really fun Peacock Princess Costume!!
This was really quite simple to make. The only downside is that I had feathers everywhere during the process. But it cleaned up quickly and really was no big deal! So come check out how to make my pretty Peacock Princess Costume!
Peacock Princess Costume
To make a Peacock Princess Costume, you will need:
- Costume Eye Mask
- 1 packet Peacock Feathers (I found a fancy bundle all ready to use for my wand at Hobby Lobby)
- 1 packet (2 each) full Peacock Feathers
- 1 packet of blue-green-black fancy feathers
- Hot glue gun
- Wooden Dowel
For the wand I simply hot glued the pretty little peacock feather grouping that I bought to the wooden dowel! You can not get any more simple then that!
For the eye mask, I hot glued two peacock feathers on one side of the mask and then I hot glued the rest of the blue-green feathers all over the mask!
I then trimmed around the edges of the eye mask. It was a bit messy. But it was well worth it for the end result! I really do love how this Peacock Princess Costume turned out! It is super cute!
I think it is cute on a little girl, but would be equally as cute on an adult as well! And even though it was a bit messy, it really only took about 15 minutes to put together! My only hint is to not skimp on the hot glue so that the feathers stay put on their mask. We love how our Peacock Princess Costume turned out!
