Butterfly Costumes

Butterfly costumes are wonderful bright affairs, they are eye-catching, sexy, and come in many colors and styles. Some of them are based on actual species and some are make believe, all are gorgeous!

The way each of the costume designers has portrayed the butterfly is interesting and unique, some use the black of the wings to pick-out sections of the dress, and some incorporate the wings into the actual skirt or bodice.

A butterfly costume is ideal for any dress up holiday, party or situation where you want to stand out from the crowd, the majority of the costumes here are short, but I have managed to find some very nice longer versions too.

Yellow And Orange Butterfly Costumes

Costumes Inspired By The Monarch Butterfly

These yellow and orange butterfly costumes are based on the beautiful Monarch Butterfly. Monarch butterfly costumes are very popular and there are many variations on the Monarch butterfly style. Typically a Monarch costume will be orange, or orange and yellow, with black accents, with little white polka dots on black.

My absolute favorite of the costumes below is the first one, I like the way the black wing accents continue onto the skirt, also it is a bit longer. This costume comes with the dress and head band. If you wear a tiered peti-skirt under this dress it will give it some more oomph. - Very cute!

The third costume is pretty epic, doesn't it look awesome with those wings!

Which Butterflies Are Orange Or Orange And Yellow?

  • Monarch

Beautiful Blue Butterflies

A blue butterfly is the second most popular butterfly costume after the orange monarch butterfly. The blue costumes with black details and white spots (similar to the monarch costumes) are based on the pretty Swallowtail butterfly. It is always nice to catch a glimpse of a pretty blue butterfly on a summers day, you can have the same effect as you flit around the costume party in one of these lovely blue butterfly costumes.

There are quite a few other types of blue butterflies, you can find out some of their names below these blue costumes.

My fave is the last one, it's a lot of fun and I love the colorful skirt, I also think that the costume could be re-used in the future with different accessories for a new look (the dress would be perfect for a 1980's outfit for example.)

Have You Ever Seen A Pink Butterfly?

I have to admit that I have never seen a pink one, I don't even know if they exist. It would be very cool to see hot pink butterflies but I think I will be disappointed!

Sexy Black Butterfly

This black butterfly costume is dark and sexy, a little different to the bright butterfly costumes, perfect for all those rock chick butterflies! I think the boots I have picked out would look great with that particular costume.
