Brood X Periodical Cicadas Coming This Month!

Are you excited for the periodical cicadas to emerge this spring? 2021 will see the first emergence of Brood X, the 17-year cicadas that cover the greatest range of such periodic cicadas in the United States, since 2004. And we won't see (or hear!) insects from this large brood again until 2038. So this is a special event to be commemorated, especially across the 15 Eastern and Midwestern states that will experience the emergence. How about having some fun with the cicadas with these fun novelty items?

The wings are suitable for use by kids or adults; they are worn on the shoulders with adjustable, elastic straps. Pair these with a black skinsuit and maybe some DIY red bug eyes to make a more complete cicada look.
