Q-bee Cosplay by HezaChan Q-bee Cosplay by HezaChan
I've been wanting to make a Q-bee costume for the longest time. However, when I first thought about making it (2003-2004) I didn't feel as if I could do it justice. Now 10 years later I felt I was up for the challenge. I always wanted to have the black eyes like her, so I sucked it up and bought sclera lenses. Totally worth it. (Yes! Those are contacts, they are not photoshopped in!) She is one of my absolute favorite characters, and I feel like she doesn't get enough love.

The wings are made from wire and pantyhose with acrylic paint for the veins. I think these could have been done better, I made them 3 days before the con.

Everything was pretty much made with a 4 way stretch foil dot spandex. The yellow details are made with stretch velvet. I really wanted to go with a shiny fabric because insect's exoskeletons have a sheen to them. I'm happy with the contrast between the 2 fabrics. The antenna on the wig are made with crayola model magic and wire. The eyes are just foamies covered in fabric. The bee-butt is made from the spandex and stuffed with newspaper and polyfil.

The giant fork and knife were just kitchen wall decorations that I found online. They are metal too!

I really wish I knew how you got the yellow detail sewn on there. It looks prefect.
