There are many variations on how to make your own peacock costume at home, so let’s look at some here.

Corset homemade peacock costume for women

One first option is for you to make peacock costumes for women. In order to make this fancy dress, you’ll need some elements that you can find in any good online store. These will enable you to create a homemade peacock costume out of a corset and a tutu skirt. Here are the elements you need this craft:

  • Peacock feathers (they’re available in so many different colors: pick up your favorite one),
  • 1 black corset that fits with your size,
  • Colored pearls or crystals,
  • Colored boas (blue, green),
  • 1 black tutu skirt – if you find one in peacock colors, you can avoid the boas,
  • A peacock headpiece, black thigh high, black shoes,
  • Sewing thread, needles and glue.

Directions:

  • Take the corset and sew the peacock feathers all around it.
  • Sew the crystals or glue the pearls on the corset as well so as to add more sparkle to the costume.
  • For the skirt, if you haven’t found a peacock tutu skirt, then you just have to sew or glue the boas around it.

Optional: if you’re really skilled, you can choose to opt for a peacock applique feature instead. This can be applied on the front of the corset and the skirt – provided that you sewn the skirt to the corset. A good alternative is also to sew the applique to that little black dress you never wear.

Handmade peacock dress costume out of cardboard

Here you have a third option: making a peacock costume accessory out of cardboard. For the purpose you will need a piece of cardboard. Cut it into the shape of the peacock’s tail (closed or opened, the choice is yours). Glue or staple peacock feathers all around it. Get a wire hanger and unbend it. Shape it into the form of an arch. Attach the peacock feathers to the arch and secure the top of the wire arch to the back of your shirt. Secure the bottom of the cardboard tail to the bottom of your shirt or the top of your pants. A good idea is to get teal blue jeans or a skirt of this very same color.
