  • Duct Tape and a Black Garbage Sack should make great beetle wings.

  • Can you buy the wings? I have cute butterfly wings someone gave me. Then I would just do all black clothes with antennae on the head.

  • Sweat suit would be just right, the antennae on a headband would be very cute, and wings can be easily made out of craft foam and attached using BIG stitches or even large well-hidden diaper pins
