    Default The $1.5m wedding dress made up of 2009 peacock feathers

    If you want to stand out on your wedding day, this dress made up of 2009 peacock feathers could be just the ticket.
    The $1.5million creation was made at a wedding dress factory and took eight workers 40 days to sew together.

    Enlarge Count the feathers: The dress - made of 2,009 peacock feathers - is modelled

    Shake a tail feather: The dress is valued at around $1.5m

    Proud plumage: Only male birds display the colourful feathers

    An average male peacock sheds around 200 feathers during his annual moult – meaning the makers would have had to have harvested the feathers from more than ten birds over the course of a year.

    Male peacock tail feathers grow to be several feet long but are shed each year just before the breeding season.
    The feathers feature a design resembling an eye and are made up of shimmering blues and greens.
    Despite the dresses' eye-catching beauty, prospective brides should be aware that peacock feathers are considered bad luck in some cultures.
    While the live birds themselves are thought to bring good luck, having peacock feathers in your home bears the risk of inviting in trouble and sorrow.
    The dress was assembled in a wedding dress factory in Nanjing, east China's Jiangsu Province and features a bodice created with brocade and Suzhou embroidery.

    Hideous - so's the dress.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Amazing how the feathers can look so beautiful on the bird and yet so fucking ugly on the dress.

    Hmm, well the feathers themselves are beautiful and fascinating to look at when there's so many assembled in one place.

    This would be interesting as some sort of production costume (theater, movie, gay pride parade). But NOT as a wedding dress.

    China-it figures.

    From what I understand the birds shed the feathers.

    It's definitely over the top and i would never wear it, but the feathers make a beautiful pattern to look at.

    Happy trails to you...until we meet again.
    I love & miss you Dad.
