Every year we try and make costumes for little or no money. This one was the hardest to do that with. However the only thing that was bought new was the peacock feathers and really they were used when we got them. :) The rest of the costume is all recycled materials. Packing foam feet covered in old curtians. The rest was old bedsheets, curtians and clothing. The tail actually worked. She was able to raise it up or lower it depending on what she wanted to do. The tail was made with an old cabniet hinge. Hope you enjoy.
