Needs ... more ... umm ...

I hope that wooden block does at least have storage in it. Otherwise that's a waste of precious floor-space.

Also the chomp should probably be hinged. Being able to tip the top back would make cleaning easier and it'd look more menacing with a hinge.

The cloak design gives it MiG-21 wings, which is kind of odd for a bird. I think there should be less at the body-to-wing joint and more below the hands. I'm pretty sure I could make such a thing.

You could start with a shirt or a hoodie, or make it from scratch. I've never done a hood but it can't be that hard. They had them before they started making left- and right-foot shoes.

A zig-zag cut on the lower edge of a long strip of fabric concertina-folded and sewn along the sleeve would provide a "short feathers" effect. Layers of those would build up the front of a wing nicely. The longest "feathers" should be nearest the seam, on the bottom of the arm and at the back of the wing, obviously. You could do those individually and change colours partway along like a duck. You could also change colours in the lines of smaller feathers for a stripe effect near the leading edge.

A whole lot of feathers on a hood, with stripes of colour like a goldcrest perhaps, would do for the head. Masks I don't know so well but you can just cut some card, right? Tiny black feathers around the eyes, with larger, brighter ones elsewhere on the head, like eyelashes with mascara, would be cute. I guess that beak's just 120 g/cm2 paper or 160 g/cm2 thin card. You probably don't want anything more beaklike than that for reasons of needing to eat and drink during the evening.

A lot of long feathers for a tail would complete the look, but don't make them stiff or you'll have to sit on barstools Riker-style.

To make the wings more wing-like, some sort of extension is required. Rolled newspaper will do for a night. Rolled dress net would actually be washable, but I'm not sure how many layers it'd take to make it stiff enough to stand out with all that weight on it. I could make a tapered acrylic box and some satin pads for the wide end where you'd insert your fingers, and have velcro closures so you can take that out to wash the rest, but it'd probably split or shatter at some point.

You could go with plain cotton so the bits that wash off will biodegrade or super-soft satin if you want to be extra cuddly, or go totally over-the-top with sequin jersey fabric because it has sequins. You could go with crushed velvet or towelling or something else heavy, and the black, burgundy, bottle and chocolate crushed velvets would make for a fabulous outfit but heat exhaustion is a thing, y'know?

Then you should have specified that the selection was through a qualitative evaluation.

Any non-qualified claims must be assumed to be absolute and objective statements of fact.
