Bumble Bee Costume Ideas
No other insect out there is able to create the same “buzz” that bees can generate. Everyone is aware when one of these black-and-yellow bugs are in close proximity because there’s usually a lot of swatting, screaming, and even cringing in fear. What can we say? Bees know how to make an entrance! Even though these winged insects have a somewhat dicey relationship with humans, we certainly need them. Without bees we wouldn’t have honey to enjoy and many fruits and flowers wouldn’t even exist! Whether you appreciate all that these insects do for us or you just think you look ravishing in a black-and-yellow costume ensemble, we have the bee costume that will get your stinger shaking. From bumble bees to queen bees, we have the perfect bee costume that will be “bee-coming” on you!
