This year for Halloween I’m visiting my best friend in Detroit, so I made costumes for both of us. I came up with the idea of being a flamingo and then my friend decided to be a parrot so that we could be birds together. I made matching circle skirts using a tutorial on BurdaStyle. The base layer of our wings are in fabric that matches our skirts, and then I sewed on layers of fabric for feathers. I also made headbands with layered fabric feathers. It was a lot of work, but the process was actually rather fun and relaxing, and of course the finished costume is really fun to run around in. Birds of a feather flock together!
