The theme for her best friend/cousin’s birthday party was superheroes, and my girl was determined to go to this party as Super Girl.


Who is Super Girl? She’s the bestest. She rescues people and stops the bad guys and she’s super fast.

We looked at a lot of superhero costumes, but none of the were fast enough. She needed a super fast costume. And it had to have red in it. And arm bands. And glasses with a crown attached to the top.

Where does she come up with this stuff?

I had my work cut out for me.  I came up with this logo, with the star and the words “Super Girl,” but Super Girl said “it wasn’t fast enough.”

And it had to have fire. You can’t have Super Girl without fire.

Back to the drawing board.

Then I came up with this.


When I showed it to her, she smiled and laughed in a way that let me know I was finally moving in the right direction.

Next we had to figure out to which wardrobe items this logo would be affixed. We did not try on every article of clothing she owned, but we came close.

The morning of the party I was still making changes to the logo, and her outfit… Oh, and don’t forget the glasses with the crown attached.

I almost forgot the glasses. Last minute printout of a small version of the logo pasted to a piece of paper I cut out in a shape that approximated a crown, with holes the glasses’ temples could slip through to hold it in place.

Whew! done.

And to make everything that much better, when we got to the party, they had capes!

Happy Birthday, Bella! 🙂


Bonus: Halloween costume is done.

What have you been up to?
