- Black Sweatsuit
- Antannae Headband
- Black Elastic
Cut wing shapes out of cardboard. Hold the wings up to the back of whoever is going to wear it. Make a mark on the wings just above each shoulder and just under each armpit. Punch a small hole where you made each mark. Paint as desired. You can also embellish them with glitter, sequins, etc. Use your imagination!
Once the wings are dry use a pencil to poke the ends of elastic into each hole and tie the ends to secure. Cut two pieces of elastic just long enough to fit from the hole under the armpit to the hole just above the shoulder, leaving enough to tie. To wear the wings, you should be able to slip each arm into the elastic bands.
For the butterfly body, simply wear a black sweatsuit or other black clothing. Paint your face a color to match the wings. Add an Antannae Headband to top it all off!
