So I found this amazing vintage dress at the thrift store for $1.50. It reminded me of a crazy bee.



I made the wings from two wire clothes hangers and fishnets sewn together in the center with felt. The antennas were made from a Martha Stewart kit that was originally made to be bats hovering above your head. I just cut the bats into the shape I wanted. I had the glasses and the black shirt and tights were from Target.

I thought I would include some close ups of the wings and dress on my favorite girl, Alice!






Action shot.



I had a ton of fun wearing this outfit! I think I will be a bee in years to come!

adorable!! and so much more original then the generic tutu bee costume all the mass produced costume shops sell. and actually, i would totally wear that dress just on a normal day with some black boots. i think it's super cute!

love is a verb, not a noun.

God is Good. God is Love.

wow!
every year when halloween comes around, bee is always on my list of possible costume ideas, but always gets thrown out when i think about how there are 389473 girls doing the same thing. but i think i have some inspiration here to be a slightly more creative bee next year ;]

this is awesome :]
