Completed Project: The M7218 Peacock Costume as a Phoenix

Yaya Han pattern M7218 phoenix costume by Gillian on the Cosplayer by McCall's blog

I used Yaya Han’s peacock dress pattern, M7218, to create my phoenix costume.

Yaya Han’s peacock costume is a showstopper, but when I set out to make my own version of her pattern (M7218) I wasn’t planning to replicate it exactly. I knew from the start that I wanted to switch up the color palette, turning the peacock into a phoenix. I went easy on the feathers to keep the cost under control, but chose rich-looking silk fabrics to preserve the drama. I used the side panels of the bodice to indulge in some detailed hand work, and tweaked the construction slightly to suit my fabric choices and personal preferences.
