Stuff You Can't Make...

While you can make tons of super hero accessories...some things just have to be bought. Honestly it doesn't matter what characters you are creating. Any of these items will fit right in with the custom super hero your kid is designing in his/her head.

How fun and clever! Sounds much more fun to make something like these than buying some of the cheesier costumes (not all are, I know). Love it!

Our best friend in Virginia Beach made my boys capes for their birthdays back when they turned 4 and 7. She used a big, bronze-colored, shiny, satin-ish sheet that she found at a yard sale with some colorful binding for a tie around the neck. Those were the best gifts EVER for those boys. They used them for years. Love that you made this lens!
