How to make a Chicken Costume!

The CUTEST little Chicken ever!!! 

This costume cost about $15 and took half a day to make......
  All you need:
Old Hoodie
 4 Feather Boa's
 2 Rubber Gloves
Yellow tights
Chicken Head 
Last year I found a dog chicken costume at a thrift store for $1! First I cut the head, wings and tail from the dog costume and
stitched them on the hoodie......
I think the costume would be cute without the chicken head OR
you could use felt to make a head or tail:=) 
I suppose you could glue the feathers
but I hand stitched the boa's on the hoodie
You can find  feather boa's at dollar stores, Wal-mart toy department
or any craft store....
{I bought 4 from Hobby Lobby 1/2 price in their Christmas section }

I purchased yellow rubber cleaning gloves at Wal-mart  2 for $1
Stuff the fingers with some polyfil or cotton.
Insert shoe palm side down and pull tight so fingers arch up to provide tripping
Cut a slit from the tongue to heel 
Then fold and hot glue the glove closed
Perfect little chicken legs and feet!! 
I glued some loose feathers around the glove opening..... 
Can't find yellow tights?? Try dying white tights with Rit's yellow dye!



Have a Happy Halloween Everyone!! 
Check out all the places I party!
