Costume Designer Romy McCloskey Helps Monarch Butterfly With Broken Wing Fly Again – Video

Romy McCloskey, who collects the insects for a hobby, saw one was missing a large part of his right wing due to a birth defect. She said she was ‘heartbroken’ at the thought of having to put him down so decided to fix it. Romy, a costume designer, said: ‘My work involves me hand-embroidering and hand-beading costumes in my studio so I felt very comfortable doing this.’ Romy, who lives near Houston, Texas, pinned down the monarch butterfly with a coat hanger. She then used a cement adhesive to attach the trimmed wing of a similar one which recently died. The next day she tested to see if he wanted to fly outside and he did. On his first try he was around the garden, then he took a quick rest on a bush. A few moments later, he was off again, flying high, fast and confident. Romy was so excited she cheered and her heart certainly soared with him.
