Girls can be superheroes too!

June 2, 2014


Anya loves dressing up.  Like any 5 year old girl she is very in to the whole Disney princess thing but I’m relieved that she is equally keen to dress up as a pirate or a witch or her latest obsession of being a superhero.  That’s why she was delighted when she received this cute bunny superhero t-shirt with attached cape.  Of course she wanted to try it out immediately and we thought that it would be even more fun if we went the whole hog – with mask and tights and all.

With the caped t-shirt on and the mask painted, Anya took her superhero role very seriously!  Running through the park, jumping off wooden poles and even pretending to fly.

Being a girl superhero, Anya of course had to stop to collect daisies.   That’s what I love about these t-shirts by Le Macchinine Design – they’re great for boy or girl and they’re so comfy too.  So even though they can be for dressing up, they’re perfect everyday wear too.  We got the bunny one but there are cool foxes, lions and owls too.  It’s such a sweet and simple idea to attach a cape to a t-shirt and once worn, Anya took on a completely new persona.  I love clothes like these that encourage pretend play and allow a kids imagination to fly.

While superheroes always save the day, every once in a while, even they need a helping hand from their daddys!

    I love reading your posts, especially when Anya in it. My daughter is Almost 3 years old and I try to imagin how it is going to be when she gets older:)
    Beautiful post as always.

      Thank you so much for your kind words – means a lot to me. From my experience, I think it just get better and better as they get older even though at each stage you think it can’t get better or cuter than this 🙂

    And this to cute: “Being a girl superhero, Anya of course had to stop to collect daisies.”

    I am glad to see your daughter likes superheros. When I was young I was a tomboy, I adored playing outside and being strong. I would still dress up girly.

      Do you have brothers? I was also quite in to boys stuff as I have an older brother. But I did like the girly stuff too 🙂

  • A cool dress up cape and more...

    […] Dressing up is such a big thing in this household.  Soon after my daughter wakes up each morning, she heads to her dressing up box and pulls out an outfit.  These days it’s a fairy so if you come by my home at breakfast time you’ll be confronted with me eating breakfast with a fairy!  I’m always looking for things to add to her dress-up box and lately she has been showing interest in wearing a cape.  We’ve used blankets and shawls to make pretend capes but I thought I would also have a look to see if there were any new and exciting cape and mask sets out there to share with you.  I’m really not a fan of the synthetic stuff you get in abundance so I always look around for natural materials.  Just as I was about to begin my search I remembered the above image that I had bookmarked a while ago and I knew I had to share.  What a great photo and a lovely cape and mask set.

      Thank you! She just loved being in character and really treated the park as if it was her little fiefdom!

    Gorgeous photos! That t-shirt and cape is fab, as you said the Disney Princess theme does get rather boring after five years 😉 #brilliantblogposts

      Thank you! I’m so not a disney princess fan! I so much prefer real cotton dressing up clothes like these – the synthetic stuff drives me mad 🙂

  • Sophie Lovett

    Lovely post – and utterly awesome t-shirt! I will definitely be looking these up for my little superhero… You’re totally right that in this world of Disney princesses it’s lovely to see a little girl stepping into a different role. Not that there’s anything wrong with pretty dresses – but a girl’s gotta have options! #brilliantblogposts

      Thank you! Happy birthday (in advance) to your little boy. I’m sure he’ll love his ‘super’ party x

  • Honest Mum

    This is a beautiful post, Anya is stunning and I love that she wants to dress up as a superhero, I often find the role models/ costumes available to boys and girls can be so limiting so we’re doing a great job opening up all the possibilities of who are kids can be-superhero Mummies make superhero kids! Thanks so much for linking up to #brilliantblogposts

      Thank you. And I agree any child can be anything. The whole boy/girl thing is so limiting sometimes.
