The time finally arrived. He's been begging me to make him a superhero outfit....so I did. There are a lot of tutorials out there for capes, etc. I really liked this tutorial by Lynette at Get Your Craft On. Her tutorial includes a great how-to for the cape, mask, and even cuffs. Here's a girly version she made.
I was a bit excited to make this myself. While I don't have girls and I've missed the whole dress-up and dollhouse stuff, this whole superhero thing is pretty darn fun. I headed to Hobby Lobby and found the
tackiest most magical fabric money could buy.
May I present....Super Rex. (Apparently even superheros can be caught in their undies with wet bath-hair.)
His identity is top secret.
Frankly, Superman has nothing on this little guy.
But, even superheros have to take a rest here and there.
Want proof of his speed? Watch him out-run (or out-crawl) his super fast baby brother.
Yes, the world is in safe hands.
I had so much fun with this I almost want to make my own. I let him wear his cape somewhere yesterday. He refused to hold my hand while heading into the place, reminding me that he was a superhero. I guess that cape is magical. Here's the tutorial. Thanks for the fun, Lynette.
In other news, next week will be a normal week and then the next week will be HAIR WEEK! I'm excited! Thanks for reading! Have a fabulous weekend.
