Easy pink flamingo costume ideas
If you’re thinking about dressing as a pink flamingo for that next costume party, you’re in the right place. It’s easy to make a custom pink flamingo costume from everyday clothing items, sew your own pink flamingo costume, or you might choose to simply buy a pink flamingo costume (much less fun, though). With just a little creativity, you can have a unique pink flamingo costume for Halloween, Mardi Gras, or masquerade parties.
Make a pink flamingo costume
Unfortunately for those who would sew their own flamingo costume, there are only one commercial pattern available, which is long out of print: Simplicity 3663 (Child Bird Costumes). It is however possible to adapt any other bird costume pattern to become a flamingo costume with some changes to the beak shape and the fabrics chosen. Sew your chosen bird pattern with a pink plush or furry fabric to emulate feathers and add black detailing to the edges of the wings and beak.
Create a pink flamingo costume at home
Additionally, it is possible to assemble an elegant flamingo costume from parts. Wear a pink shirt with a pink tutu and black tights, and add a pink feather boa and headpiece.
You can accessorize your pink flamingo costume with a feathered headpiece.

Not as cool as a handmade costume, but you can also just buy a pink flamingo costume for yourself or your child.
