The Very Hungry Caterpillar. There was a book week last year at my Daughters kindergarten and because we love The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle I decided to make a costume. Like all things that start off with a cool idea, this cosplay ended in a nightmare. Bit by bit the parts of this costume added up until it cost around $100. That is a lot for a little girls costume. Each button was $3. I had originally intended to put wings on this to form a kind of transformation or metamorphosis. In the back of the suit are two small pocket that each have a zipper. Wings were going to be attached that could be folded into those pockets when in caterpillar mode. I even bought the fabric for the wings, another $30. In the end my Daughter got upset at the idea and told me to just make a caterpillar so I quit while I was ahead. The costume was a big success with her and everyone that saw it.
