Updated on April 3, 2015

Here in Louisiana we say, "Let the good times roll!" Holidays are celebrated with crafts, costumes and decorations, to everyone's enjoyment.

And Dragonflies, Bees and Other Bugs

Ladybugs are one of my favorite insects. They are such colorful and beneficial bugs. I also adore dragonflies and bees and have always welcomed them into the garden. Because of this, I thought it would be fun to dress up as a ladybug, bee or a dragonfly for Halloween or Mardi Gras.

There are so many adorable ladybug costumes for women, children, babies and even the dog. I also found some bee outfits that really had a sting and some lovely dragonfly costumes as well as others that would be perfect for the little ones.

We hope this buggy page helps you find a unique insect costume for a holiday or costume party.

Lady Bugs

Ladybugs

Ladybugs, also called ladybird beetles are colorful little bugs that eat aphids in the garden. The imported Asian variety can be bothersome because it winters in houses, however our native ladybugs are the farmer's friend.

The phrase, "cute as a bug" come to mind when viewing some of these costumes. If you are looking for ladybirds, bees or dragonflies, you'll find your bug here.


Bring Fefe and add to the swarm of bugs.

Of course the family dog should come along. Beetles stay together. This is so cute. I wish my cockerspaniel, 2nd Chance, would let me put costumes on him.


The next costume is a 2-in-1 reversible number. You can dress as a bee or a ladybug.

Woman's Reversible Ladybug or Bee

Two costumes in one for the ladies. Do you want to be a cute bug or a bee with a sting?

 

When I was a girl, I went through a ladybug phase... just loved the black and red colors and the polka dots. Sometimes tweens are hard to satisfy, but there are outfits may make yours happy.

This ladybug video is so well done. The animation is fantastic! Little ladybugs in love.

Bees

Honeybees are colorful and beneficial insects. Where would we be without bees to pollinate our flowers which produce fruits and vegetables? Bees of all sizes and shapes all dressed up for Halloween or Mardi Gras.

Junior Girl's Bee

This ballerina style ensemble may show a bit more "stinger" than I would like, but that's what the teens are wearing these days.

 

Bees For Mom

Some for adults are rounded. These would work for those of us with a little too much tummy.


Baby and Toddler Bees

Oh, look at the little baby bee. I bet she would get lots of candy on Halloween.

Maybe you have a striped leotard. Here are some bug-like accessories that will help create your own dress-up outfit.

Dragonflies

Baby Dragonflies

These precious outfits really have the ahhhh factor. I love the colors and the way they are made. Because of the long wings, These costumes could also be used as fairy outfits by leaving off the antennae head band and adding a magic wand.


I can't decide which one is the best. I like them all. The colors are so pleasant and soothing. Love the little head dress, too.

Deluxe Baby Dragonfly

This deluxe version is quite ornate.

 

These could be a fairy or a dragonfly. It's so shimmery and delicate.

Dragonfly Toddler Costume

Ahh, so sweet with the filmy little dress.

 

Grownup dragonflies and wings to create your own style... naughty or nice. There are wings which can be added to a flowing dress or leotards and you are a dragonfly or a fairy. A versatile accessory.
