Default Re: Peacock costume I made - thought I'd share :)

Thanks, you all are too kind. You can't really tell in the pictures but the torso of the leotard is covered in black feathers & the neck of the it is trimmed with black sequins. I also wrapped the waistband of the tutu with black ribbon & attached a black bow as well. The plumage/ wings were by far the most difficult to make. I attached some velcro to the bottom of the wings & the top of the leotard for added support. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Red ribbon week is this coming week at her school though & Friday is wear a book character costume for a parade. I have no idea what to make but am sure I can whip something up over the weekend. Any suggestions for book characters to make?
