 The bee was the last addition to the outfit. I made it using yellow tights stuffed with wadding to give the shape of the body.  I then sewed on the details on by hand using scraps of fabric I found laying around the house, This gives its a more rustic homemade feel, like the rest of my costume has. I then created the legs and wings using my favourite material, WIRE!! This kept the wings looking delicate and see through. I contemplated using tissue paper to fill in the negative space between the pieces of wire, but I thought that this would make them look too heavy and not translucent anymore.
