Thank you everyone for the compliments!! It's great to hear positive things about something you put so much time and love into. Here's a picture of the back of the costume:


And no, Chantelle, it wasn't too heavy it all. Just bulky.

Best peacock costume I've seen.  I can't even imagine how long that must have taken.. months obviously.  Gorgeous work, especially that fanciful tail!

That looks FABULOUS.
How did you attach the feathers? Did you sew them?

I attached them with love. And hot glue, lots of hot glue.

Ha! I couldn't resist typing that. But in all seriousness, all the feathers were attached with a long line of hot glue on their stems. Haven't lost one yet! (Which is much more than what I can say for the sequin shoes I did) I think I would have lost my mind if I had to sew each of the feathers on.

 Grin  I've been watching the other post full of advice this whole time - and your costume is better than I could imagine.  Well done!
