The whole super family idea started months ago when Azure told me she wanted to be a vampire for Halloween. A vampire? I asked. "Yes! A vampire! With fangs!" She had most likely heard me trying to convince Dan that reading the Twilight series was a worthwile pastime, and decided that being a vampire would be a great idea...but I didn't quite think the same. How could I put my sweet little Azure in a gory vampire costume complete with fangs? It just didn't seem right.
So, I had some convincing to do. She finally caved in and settled on being a superhero instead. (we went through lots, and lots of options!) So, there you have it: the super family was born.
My favorite part about it all, was that I was able to use the 30 year old batman costume that my mom had sewn for my older brother, for Calvin. It was still in great condition - and so cute! He wouldn't have anything to do with the mask, but I think he still looked great. :) I know, I am a completely, unbiased mom!
