Owl costume: in stages, every detail

A costume of an owl can come in handy for a children's party or a costume party. Did you know that it is not necessary to buy it? Skills of needlework will help in creating a costume with your own hands.


If you can not sew, then in this way the owl costume for a girl can be done with glue. Materials:

  • Cloth is gray and black. You can use old clothes, because in the work you will only need flaps.
  • Scissors.
  • Needle with thread or glue "Moment".
  • Sunglasses.
  • As a basis, use a black simple dress or a turtleneck with a skirt.
  • Cardboard.
  • Stationery knife.
  • Printer.
  • Lace.


  1. First draw a feather pattern on the cardboard. Cut it out.
  2. With it, make about 50-60 feathers.
  3. From the bottom of the dress begin to sew or glue every detail. Continue until you reach the top and do not wrap your neck.
  4. On the printer, print an owl mask. If there is no such possibility, then draw it yourself. In the center, cut out round holes and glue to the sun glasses.

5. Insert a ribbon or string into the edges of the mask.

Done! If you replace the feathers with white, you will get a Polar Owl costume.


The most important detail of the costume is the wings. If the top part is simple (in case of emergency you can find a suitable hat), then the bottom is much more difficult. What you need to create an owl costume:

  • The black jacket.
  • Scissors.
  • Mask of an owl.
  • Glue.
  • Brilliant tape.
  • Cloth for the base of the wing.
  • Trimming fabrics for feathers.
  • Cardboard.

What to do:

  1. Create a layer template for the wings. Cut the feathers using it.
  2. Measure the size of the wings. To do this, find the distance from the middle of the back of the neck to the tip of the baby's fingers. And the distance from the same place, but to the tailbone.
  3. Mark these measurements on the fabric. The ends should be connected by a curved line.
  4. Apply glue to the upper edge of the feathers and press it against the wing from the back side. Allow to dry first layer. Under the cloth, lay an oilcloth so that the seeping glue does not ruin the table.
  5. Start gluing the next layers, but already to the fore. With each layer of feathers becoming less and less, consider this when you cut out the details on the fabric.
  6. When all the layers are in place, cut off excess pieces of fabric around the edges of the wing.
  7. Cut two additional wing-sized pieces.
  8. Turn the already made wings and sew a new piece to them. This is necessary in order to hide the defects of work such as translucent parts and leaked glue.
  9. On the first row protruding from the wrong side, glue additional feathers from the same fabric.
  10. At the edge of the wing on both sides, sew a ribbon with sparkles.
  11. Sew the wings to the black sweater from the neck to the end of the sleeve.
  12. Sew feathers on the blouse.
