Bug Halloween Costume Ideas

Squish! Do you ever feel like the world is stepping all over you and there's nothing you can do to stop it? Well, you can finally look the part with an awesome bug Halloween costume! Bugs are the unsung heroes of our planet, and there are more of them than any other kind of animal, so why not pay homage to these important elements of the food chain?


Nobody likes cockroaches, with their feathery little legs that crawl over the food that you leave out, and their long antennas feeling you up at night while you sleep. Pay respect to these hardy creatures while giving your friends the willies with a cockroach costume.

First, get a headband with some long, wispy antennas. You can usually find this online. Next, find a black bodysuit and get some black or dark brown fabric. Cut the fabric into the shape of wings and sew it onto the bodysuit. There you have a simple cockroach.


Flies are also gross to most people, but lack the creepiness of cockroaches. For a fly costume, you can follow a similar pattern to the cockroach costume, but swap a pair of transparent pre-made wings instead of black or brown ones. You can also don a fly mask, similar to the one in the original horror movie The Fly. Alternatively, you can just wear compound eye glasses.


If you want something a bit more feminine and pleasant, why not a ladybug? Get a headband with short, cute antennas. You can buy a pre-made ladybug costume, or you can make one yourself out of spotted fabric. Even wearing a red coat that has black spots might work if you don't want to get fancy with it.
