I have been calling my little guy “Bug” for a while now… I’m not really sure how it started… but it stuck! If it’s Mommy’s nickname for him, it seems to be the perfect sentimental choice for his second Halloween Costume.
Baby Bug Costume Ideas
I headed to Etsy and Pinterest for inspiration. However, I found that Bug costumes tend to be a little girly.
The Caterpillar Costumes and Bee Costumes were a bit gender-neutral and I considered those options. However, I knew if he was any of those, we’d be calling him a “Caterpillar” or a “Bee” — instead of just a “Bug.”
So, I built myself an inspiration board for a Baby Bug Costume on Polyvore — playing with stripe and polka dot variations.
My husband and I both agreed on the spots, and off we “flew” to get our little Bug’s costume together.
I was more than pleased with the final result, and it was so easy to DIY!
