After months of agony, I’ve decided on a theme for Sam’s 1st/Jack’s 2nd birthday party – SUPERHEROES!

I mean, what little kid doesn’t want to don a cape, mask and fight the crime in their backyard?!

First things first…finding the cape. Checked out a few specialty shops online but they were going for $50-$100 a pop! (Are you kidding me?!)

Thank god for ETSY where I found a smorgasbord of superhero stuff at much more reasonable prices!

After some digging, I ordered a cape from Homemade Heroes to test out. I’m so happy I did! 

Very well made. The fabric is durable and the emblems are top notch.

GOOD VALUE?  Definitely
Did I mention the capes are only $18 AND they are reversible?? Yep – that means you get 2 capes for a fraction of the price of one on the fancy sites. I chose the Superman/Batman combo but there are loads of other choices on her site, including batgirl for the little supermamas. 

Each cape comes with a  black superhero mask for your little guy. I brushed this off as just a fun extra when I bought it but when he put it on I nearly died laughing. It makes the costume.

SERVICE?  Excellent
Quick and courteous


P.S. BEFORE YOU GO PLANNING AN INTERVENTION — Yes, I realize their birthdays are in September and its only May. Yes, I realize they won’t remember one second of it. Yes, I realize I’m crazy but I like it.

    PERFECT. I’m already putting my Wonder Woman costume together. I’ll come in the invisible plane.

    Oh, wait… was it just the kids you meant to dress up? My bad….
