Monster High Doll Peacock Fairy Commission - Making the Peacock Feather Tail
Continued from Part two-
With the hair, repaint, dress and wings complete, the last thing to do was make the huge tail for my Peacock Fairy doll.
I decided that the feathers for the tail had to be attached to something other than the dress. I needed to construct a base of some sort. I ended up buying a peacock feather pad like this one.
Ironically, most of the peacock feather pad ended up being hidden by the additional feathers. I added peacock eye feathers and more of the green coque saddle feathers all around the edge till I got this:
|Peacock Feather Tail|
How do you make a feather tail removable? The only way I could come up with was snaps. It had to be easy for my client to attach the tail.
So I had to make a base out of fabric that the snaps could be sewn to. I used heavier snaps because I didn't want the tail to fall off easily.

|Looks pretty awful I know, but this is all going to be hidden.|
Now that I had the removable base made, all I did was attach it to the feathered tail with FabriTac Glue.
