Sweet Pea

For my son Lucas’s first Halloween I was adamant that he not wear a stereotypical store-bought baby costume. No pumpkins or spiders and no pets. He had to wear something different, something original and something cute. I planned this before he was even born and we knew he was a "he" so it also had to be gender neutral.

As with everything I try to make, it had to not only look good, but be sensible as well. I wanted to take advantage of his young age, at 5 weeks old officially he still classed a newborn and likes to be snuggled up. I'd been looking up baby cocoons when I thought of the idea of a pea pod. I asked my super skilled mother in law to help with the knitting and together we made Lucas a super cute costume that I hope everyone will love this halloween.

The model himself all tuckered out at our neighbours Halloween baby party, I was right, everyone was bowled over by his costume and thought it was super adorable!

Comic book ladies get an Anime makeover!

I love comics and anime and the sexy PVC figurine range Ame-Comi really are awesome, I love ALL the reinventions! What's not to love about Wonder Woman in armour?!? There is also goth Raven in rock boots and steam-punk Joker to feast your eyes on :) All the costumes are perfect for portraying the characters personalities and most have multiple gravity defying hair dos : D

One of my favourites is Mera (Aquamans wife) she is a supporting character who rarely gets any attention but her reinvention is simply stunning. Of all the DC girls she was probably the most in need of a make over! Gone is the boring green cat suit (so predictable for a red head) and in its place a scaly skimpy thing with a plunging neckline, fancy mer-tail, its beautiful and unique :)

Thanks to Topless Robot for sharing that you can also buy (for a reasonable price too!) some of the costumes over at Costume Craze. The sexy costumes are available for 3 of the most famous DC girls, Wonder Woman, Catwoman and Super girl. Wonder Woman stands alone by being one of the only characters whose Ame-Comi version actually covers more than her regular costume, and I have to admit, I actually really like this design for her.
