This bugs me is a very lame title but I’m going with it. Last week at the costume college I found a very unique bar pin. I have no clue as to the date but it is worth a share here because it is odd!I took this photo at several angles trying to catch its essence. Do you see it yet?You catch a bit of the color…green under tones.How about this angle. Do you see it has a face?
A face, I tell you! And legs!
Awe dang! That photo didn’t work out so well! But, what we have here is some type of beetle mounted on to a pin. Beetle wing embroidery was popular in the Victorian era but I couldn’t tell you if this is the same type of bug. Maybe it is a scarab that would have appealed to folks in the peak of interest in Egypt. I don’t know. I also don’t know if I’d enjoy wearing this on my clothing.
