I like the idea of feathers on top of the head. What would you do about a beak? Just not have it at all?
Here is a link to a parrot costume that gave me the idea... Coolest Homemade Parrot Costume Ideas
I'm not sure that I love the fake eyes and beak but that's kind of part of a parrot?
I'm also struggling with the tail. If I make a multicolored tutu with three layers (red, blue, yellow) should I just make the back part of the tutu longer layers to make the tail? Would that even look like a tail or just silly? I want the tutu to look like a tutu.
Wings are a good idea too. I'd have to figure out how to make them.
Thanks for the ideas so far. It's getting my mind turning.
