The composition of the feok festival costumes was studied using descriptive survey. Seventy respondents were purposively sampled for the study, and data was collected using questionnaires and interview guides. The raw data was analyzed using SPSS data analysis software, version 16.0; and the results presented using frequency counts and percentages. Findings from the study revealed that the smocks were made from hand-woven cotton fabric and studded with talismans made from skins of cats, tigers and lions, and enclosed with herbs. The study further showed that the pantaloons were also crafted using hand-woven cotton fabric. The hats were fashioned using grass, calabash, talismans and horns. The waist belts and bangles were made from skins of animals and enclosed with herbs.
