My daughter, Catherine meeting Thor at Disneyland and she just had to have a Thor costume for the occasion. Luckily I can sew or I would never be able to keep up with her costume requests.
My girls, circa 2006, as Kim Possible and The Hulk for Halloween. Age three and five.
She picked these out herself. Not bad for 5 years old!
Lola Joy was Super girl for Halloween but is a #hearthero every day!
MJ (age 1.5) as Hawkgirl and Daria (age 8) as White Tiger. Homemade costumes by Jay.
@natgertler says “had a number of Supergirls today,but my fave was this Iron Man at the school parade. “
My friend’s daughter won 1st place in a costume contest! from blair2019
This is my 4.5 year old daughter as Barbara Gordon on Halloween.
My daughter is my favorite superhero. She’s definitely one of a kind.
My daughter cosplaying as Wasp from the Avengers. The man she is standing with is Christopher Yost. For those familiar with The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes…this is the head writer for the show. At the Rose City Comic Con, he called Aria over to his table and asked if I would take a photo of the two of them together on his phone. He told Aria that he wrote the show and that Wasp was his favorite…before Hulk, Iron Man, or even Thor. Aria stood wide-eyed, half-smiling at him. The next morning she asked to watch the cartoon and said, “Momma, I want to write to Christopher Yost. I want to send him a letter. He said that Wasp was his FAVORITE.” She was all smiles. This is what it is all about. Two minutes, a little attention, and the head writer for a popular Avengers cartoon made my girl feel like she was a million bucks.
As a Dad a lot of folks have given me advice on how to raise my daughter. My parents in particular have some “traditional” views on girls. I personally don’t have any experience with being a “traditional” girl. I do have experience with Star Wars, comics, Hobbits, and video games.
I figure there’s no reason that I can’t share what I love with my daughter, so here she is all “traditional” like for ComicCon in Denver. She picked out her own costume, tutu, and Mjolnir. I did recommend a bit smaller hammer, she wasn’t hearing it.
She got to meet Thor and Darth Vader, loved getting her picture drawn, didn’t want to go home, and keeps asking if we can go back. Kids are smart, ComicCon should be year round.
We’ll be back next year, and this time with /insert best Darth Vader voice imitation/ “Sista”.
Until last week my daughter has been all about princesses and fairies and -kaboom! - suddenly it’s all about Spidy… we have costumes, bedding, clothing, you name it! Although she does still play princesses with her dolls - it’s just that Spidy is now the prince :)
My niece, dressed as Iron Man for their morning walk…
