burning man feather costume

Festival goers are getting all fired up for Burning Man next week, which goes from August 26th – September 2nd and is located in Black Rock City Nevada! Customers have been pouring in to our NYC & LA showrooms in preparation for one-of-a-kind feather costumes. But if you don’t have time to DIY check out some of our fun products below at Featherplace.com

FEATHER TIPS FOR BURNING MAN:

Please remember that when choosing your feathers for Burning Man, using all NATURAL, non-dyed Rooster Coque Tails, Pheasant Tails, and Peacock Feathers are always best for leaving “no trace behind” in The Black Rock Desert environment.  Avoid using feather products that have the tendency to shed.  Be sure that your feathers are securely attached when you DIY,  or if even if you plan to wear any finished feather products you may have purchased.

These over the shoulder Natural Pheasant Wings-are perfect for the person who wants a comfortable pair of wings that won’t get in the way!

This Natural Rooster Coque Feather Headdress can be worn as is, or without the removable gold mask! This item is also great to be used as a base if you’re constructing something with your personal creative touch!

Ombre Story

The summer may be winding down but things are just starting to heat up in the NYC area! We love our Carnival customers and are excited as usual to see what amazing costumes will be part of this year’s West Indian American Day Carnival held in Brooklyn, NY. Feathers are a huge part of all Carnival costumes and they keep getting more and more creative! We put together mood boards of our top 3 trends we expect to see in the next year and beyond. Above is our “Ombré” board, which creates a stunning look on longer feathers when either tip dyed or dyed in 3 or more fading colors. Check out our Tip Dyed Pheasant Tails to achieve that vibrant look!

Below are our other two stories, “All White Everything” and “Birds of Paradise”. White is a luxurious shade in any category and it does not disappoint for Carnival. Silver Pheasant Tails are a great way to add white to any look!

All White Everything Story“Birds of Paradise” invokes a feeling of a rare jeweled bird wearing a myriad of colors on its feathers. Try our Bleached & Dyed Pheasant Tails or Peacock Feathers to take part in this trend. Stop by The Feather Place NYC for all your feather needs and hope to see you all this Labor Day for the festivities!
