Costumes Past Revisited- The NBC Peacock

Here's a five year old costume that I made for our school's 15 minute halloween parade. The NBC Peacock- there's a novel idea. I engineered the tail to open and close like a fan to fit in the car and through doorways. I used refrigerator box cardboard in long slits attached them all just like a fold-out fan. Then I made faux fur straps to tie around my waist and back (like a fanny-pack/backpack) to hold it on me while I walked. Yeah, Micheal's craft store made a lot of money off me buying royal blue boa's- I think I exhausted their supply!

Absolutely love this costume! Everything you touch is beautful! You should put together a book of your costumes/ wearable art.
