Bee Bumbling

My creative process involves a lot of trying things out.  I rarely have a concrete plan, usually there is a lot of pinning of trims on my costume while it's on the dress form and standing back to see if it looks "right."  So I sewed the netting together to make a longer length then pleated it to the skirt for a floaty "Bee" over skirt.  Here is the Bee costume with all the trims pinned on.
I like this plan quite a bit.  :)

I plan on making a small perchy cocktail type hat out of black velvet trimmed with antennas and maybe bug eyes and some flowers.  Here's the buckram form I made, flowers, feather antennas and metal/crystal bug "eyes."
