Sparkly Superhero Fun

The children's school recently encouraged them to come in dressed as Superheroes and donate £1 to a charity that supports Rohingya refugees.  I didn’t like the idea of buying a costume to wear for one day and in the past it has been a lot of fun thinking of and making our own costumes.

This time round, I looked for the cheapest plain t-shirt I could find and customised it with a simple logo – a lightning bolt.  I whipped out the trusty answer to all homework problems, spray piant, and cut a template out from plain card to spray through.

In hindsight I should have put more newspaper down around the template as the spray paint gets everywhere… but you live and you learn I suppose.

I paired the messy print customised t-shirts with plain leggings in the same colour and a sparkly tutu.  Little Lady pointed out that light pink doesn’t go with burgundy.  I pointed out the pink tutu’s were the cheapest I could find.

The cape is a good old fashioned pillow case safety-pinned to the t-shirt.

The girls really enjoyed wearing their costumes and enjoyed the kind compliments from their teacher.
