What's the Buzz? by HezaChan What's the Buzz? 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!

This reminds me of the Bee Girls from that video game, "Gulp Quest" where if you get captured by them, they convert your body into honey without killing you. its a weird game...
