My Victorian Peacock costume I designed. [link]
Inspired by Victorian fashion and of course the beautiful peacock. Worn over full victiorian undergarments, including my corset. [link]
I used 15 yards of blue satin for the skirt, overskirt drape, collar, and train. I spent over 100 hours handbeading the bodice and the trim around the sleeves and skirt drape. Each of the 200 peacock feathers I sewed on individually by machine onto the detachable collar and train.
Total cost = $350
