For our last trick, we have the Bee costume! We call our daughter Bee so when the boys came up with a “bug theme” it was kind of a given that she would be a Bee!
This costume was also super easy and semi-homemade! I found the cutest little ballet leotard in the dance section at Walmart, which she will be wearing often because I can’t handle how cute it is!! I found the antenna (which she hated and wouldn’t keep on haha) at Joanns, it was so cute but sister would just not keep them on at all! The skirt and the wings were mama made :)
For the wings, I used a metal hanger, cut it in half and shaped both sides, Then I covered each side in some fabric that I think is iridescent organza? Then I used electrical tape to connect them and sewed elastic straps on the back for her to wear them. I added the veins with a sharpie.
For the skirt, I tried to find yellow and black striped fabric, I’m sure I could have found it online if I wouldn’t have procrastinated :) But I did wait till the last minute so I had to make my own. I cut 2.5″ strips of fabric and sewed them all together to make the fabric for the skirt, I made the skirt fullness 2 and a half times the waist so it would be flouncy! I added yellow pompoms and called it a day!
She loved the shirt and the bodysuit and the wings grew on her, I just couldn’t get her on board with the antenna! She did like to eat it however.
Here are a few pics of the whole “bug” game.
They had so much fun and it was so a mom dream to see all of my little critters trick or treating together!
