Professional costume designer Romy McCloskey used her skills to help save the life of an injured Monarch butterfly. “I fell into raising butterflies by accident when I found 3 caterpillars on a bush in my front yard,” she told Bored Panda. So after one of her darlings got injured, Romy knew she had to help.

I have always had a love for butterflies,” she said. “They have a very personal meaning to me. Before my mother died, almost 20 years ago, she said to me, ‘Romy, whenever you see a butterfly, know that I’m there with you, and that I love you.’

Her supplies included a towel, a wire hanger, contact cement, a toothpick, a cotton swab, scissors, tweezers, talc powder, and an extra butterfly wing (from one of her little girls that died a few days before).
