Who says superheroes can only be boys? My daughters love dressing up in some of their favorite superhero costumes. While Savannah usually prefers to dress like Jessie or Buzz from Toy Story 3, she has recently fallen in love with a superhero cape we got her last, but didn't fit her. Now that she is a little taller, it fits perfectly. So, on most days, you can find her with her "S" cape on, and "1" crown (don't tell her this was from her 1st birthday, as she thinks it means she is the #1 super girl) :-) As for Arabella, she prefers to dress up a pretty princess. With over a dozen princess outfits to choose from, she opted for a light up ballerina dress the other day when I told the girls I would be taking pictures of them in their favorite superhero costumes. And, this is what I got:
Aren't they the cutest superheroes you have ever seen? I think so. :-) I love how Daddy swooped in and helped Savannah fly around the room, only to stop and rescue Arabella, whose costume was coming loose. Savannah lent a hand by pulling up her dress and snapping it together, and then flew off (well ran) to help others in need. :-)
So, if you have a superhero in your house who loves to dress up in their favorite hero costume, why not snap a few photos and enter he Matchbox® Heroes Wanted™ Sweepstakes for your chance to win a $60,000 grand prize scholarship, or other prize packs?
