31 Days of DIY Halloween – Here comes Power Girl

super girl

We love it here at iLoveToCreate, when we get to see our co-worker’s kids, and this cutie-pie belongs to Holly Brant, one of our marketing department peeps. She was really feeling the Girl Power when she put this sparkly costume on! You can’t see in the photo, but the cape is a second t-shirt the I cut out the front and left the neckline of the t-shirt. Then I glued and glittered the edges to make a SUPER cape!

You can add glow-in-the-dark paint around the glitter and make this costume safe for trick-or-treat night!
