A trustafarian peacock is an extremely image and fashion-conscious person, often with dreadlocks, who does not work but has access to plenty of money. A species of rich “glamour-hippie” who is particularly obsessed with dressing up sexy, preening, and showing off. They wear dreadlocks, tight-fitting custom leather, trendy tribal jewelry, sexy boots, masks, feathers, furs and fedoras. Unlike the traditional granola trustafarians who pretend to be poor and earthy – the peacock types like to flaunt their freedom and joy to the world. As it’s hard for them to relate with most adults - they often form exclusive cliques of uber-fashionable adult “kids” with the same psychological issues and fully-subsidized lifestyles, often thinking of themselves as "costume performance artists" and post-modern dancers. Trustafarian Peacocks can most easily be sighted on the West Coast, and in places where former hippie influences have cross-bred with big money – such as San Francisco, Ashland, Maui, Bali and at the Burning Man festival.
