I have a weird love for the designs in Darkstalkers, they are always bizarre enough to capture my attention. I chose to make a QBee costume to wear along with my friend Yaya’s Felicia outfit. I had already previously made and sold my Morrigan costume, so I did not feel up to remaking that. It was a fairly easy choice to select QBee as she appeals to me for my love of bugs, and bee butts!
I chose to make this outfit out of a metallic spandex to represent the slickness of a bug’s exoskeleton. The swirls along the bust and torso of the bodysuit are indeed seams, I did not merely stitch a stretchy applique overthe surface, but took the time to pattern out all the swirls and sew them together. It was quite a project! The wig was a special challenge in this costume for it’s bizarre shape. Does anyone else think it’s strange that she has two sets of eyes?

Your wig looks so gourgeous!! And the whole costume too, so cool you've sewn the stripes instead of clueing! ^0^/
