This year I decided to go as an often overlooked (but beautiful) insect, the moth. My entire costume (minus the shirt, tights, headband, shoes, and unmentionables) was made by me.
I have six legs (my real legs don't count!), antennae, and a fuzzy thorax and abdomen. Not pictured is the proboscis I made out of a party favor... Good times.
This is the best photo of my costume, but it also has my monkey baby in it. Sorry!
*In response to the posted questions:*
I made the wings out of an old paint tarp that I spray painted. I used wire to make them lay like that. The "antennae" are attached to a headband with wire.
Yes, I also made the monkey costume, but from a pattern.
O.K.- twist my arm, here is a gratuitously cute monkey picture of my baby girl.
Baby + monkey costume = best thing ever
