Midsummer Night's Dream Peacock costume

Added Nov 24, 2008

St. Petersburg, ...






My friend had a Playboy style Midsummer night’s dream party in August. Instead of the usual fairy wings, I decided I wanted a peacock tail.

Material Notes

I started with a peacock and marabou fan. I used heavy gauge craft wire, black pantyhose, black tulle, and peacock feather on ribbon trim.

    Wow! I actually went as a peacock for Halloween a few years back… my tail wasn’t nearly that nice! Great job!
