Last year, my oldest wanted to be a peacock :) My girls have a good time coming up with interesting ideas for their costumes! I had to think about how to make the tutu LOOK like a peacocks tail, something new and different that I hadn't seen before!
So following my tutu tutorial HERE, I did the same basic form but something a little different for the tail. I used slightly longer pieces of tulle and instead of folding them in half, I folded them with one long end and one short. I did a few different long/short length variations so it would look poofy but tapper down in the middle. Then I added to the middle of the bow a cute peacock feather accent I found at Hobby Lobby :)
Her complete costume :) I found the shirt at Dollar Tree and freezer paper stencilled it with the cute phrase cut out on my cricut. I ended up taking the feather accent off the back of the tutu and putting it on a dollar store headband, which was super easy because it was once piece!
She really liked the idea of a mask so I found one for her at Rite Aid on clearance! I found some single feathers at Hobby Lobby and hot glued them to the side. Then, I wrapped a pencil in some ribbon and hot glued that to the back. Add a few more coordinating ribbons to the bottom and there you go!
Add some black leggings and ballet flats and the look is complete :)
This year she wants to be a mummy ... with a tutu of course! Can't wait to see how it comes out ;-)
