Peacock costumes for young and old.
I usually put pages together on a wide variety of costumes like Renaissance, or Superhero costumes. All of a sudden I'm intrigued by Peacock Costumes (that might have something to do with Katy Perry) so I thought I'd give this idea a try.
Strut your stuff and be as proud as a peacock at Halloween or your next costume party.
Getting to know the Peacock
We typically use the term "peacock" to refer to male and female birds. Technically, only males are peacocks, females are peahens, and together they are called peafowl. Peafowl are quite sociable creatures. Did you know a group of peafowl is called a Party. How appropriate!
All of the costumes below, even though most are for women, are modeled after male peacocks. In reality females are a dull brown color, while the males have beautiful iridescent blue-green colored plumage.
If you're dressing up like a peacock, you might want to act the part as well. How would a peacock walk and sound, what would they do? Let's take a look...
Making Your Own Peacock Costume
I am not crafty enough to come with an idea for you myself, but I have found someone who is!
Thegirlblogger explains how she created an easy & inexpensive peacock costume on short notice and with a limited budget. Her blog post is titled – All you need is a little hot glue. She'll show you how a black dress, some ribbon, peacock feathers, and a masquerade mask can turn into the perfect costume. I think she looked marvelous and I have to admit it looks like even I could pull it off.

What You Need
Sephora's look uses shades of blue, violet and gold. The focus is on the eyes, with light shades for your cheeks and lips.
You don't have to have the Beauty In A Box Peacock set they talk about here. Any drugstore brand will be fine for your costume. Just choose similar colors and apply them in the gradation they show to create this soft and shimmery look.
It's up to you if you want to adhere peacock feathers to your face, or add them to your hair.
