DIY – Golden Feather Costume

Well, it was not as easy as I just made it sound! Extremely time consuming and tedious actually, but well worth it. Here are the steps in more detail:

• Start off with a nude or gold fitted strapless dress

• Go to Michael’s or any craft store and clear out their feather department!

• Tape down strips of tape (sticky side up) to large pieces or cardboard and spray (Rustoleum works the best)

• Let dry then peel off and store all together

• Start hot gluing at the bottom of the dress, overlapping and working your way up

• We were running low on feathers so I sprayed some tulle and tacked it in place to finish the bust

• For the shoulder epaulettes, I had some random bikini top linings in my drawer that we cut down to a smaller triangle shape and hot glued the more pointy style feathers to. To adhere them, use double stick tape (or I might recommend spirit gum)

• Our hair accessories are little decorative wire berry things I also had lying around that we painted gold and wrapped around our head and twisted to close

• For the eye makeup I used black eye liner & shadow, gold gel body paint, and gold leaf adhered by tapping on a small amount of eyelash glue over the makeup then placing on with a tweezers
