Pretty Peacock

Sadly there is no audio to this image. The peacock squawking was, um, inspired. Almost as much as the strut. My girl magically transformed into a peacock with a simple handmade costume (tutorial here although I used real feathers) that took me no more than an evening to create.  Now my little peafowl is ready to strut for her mate, or, er, candy.

 The peacock tail was made with ribbon, tulle, and I used blue felt on which to glue the peacock feathers.

 She’s a natural! This kid is hilarious. True to herself, she had to have a hint of pink somewhere on her. I’m sure it’s what actual peafowl would wear if they had the option.
