DIY Pink Flamingo Costume

Hi Friends!

Have you guessed that I am really into Pink Flamingos right now?  The other day I showed y’all my Pink Flamingo Pumpkin and today I have another DIY Pink Flamingo project for you.  I have shared some of my previous Halloween Costumes, but this might be my favorite so far.  Here we go friends, my costume for Halloween 2014….

So, this is really a simple idea that is based around a pink dress.   There are some standout elements to this costume, yeah… I am talking about the hat.  I picked up a cardboard top-hat at a craft store.  I had an extra pink flamingo head/neck from my pumpkin project earlier this week. I attached that sucker to the top of the hat with hot glue and painted the hat pink.

I added little black paint for the eyes and on the rim of the hat. Then I used a hot-glue gun to attach feathers all over the top. You never can have enough feathers on a costume. You you don’t like standing out in a crowd the this is not the hat for you.

 Pink Flamingo Costume Feather Bib Necklace

I made this bib necklace with felt, ribbon and thread.  I created  a circle and feathers out of different shaded of felt.

I arranged the felt feathers on the felt circle and stitched them together.  I repeated this with  different colors of feathers.

I also love it because it is not attached and can be removed. Have you ever went out somewhere dressed in a costume then randomly ended up in a place where you feel uncomfortable dressed like a bird? No; well me neither….but it is nice to have the option.

    Oh my goodness – – you are a rockstar! I love your photo shoot! And uber creative costume. Also, pink is my favorite color – – so you were slated to get a gushingly positive comment from me regardless. Hugs!
