it's been a while since i posted an invitation. i have so many to share! but i like to wait until after the party, and by then, i'm usually on to the next thing. this one has been sitting in the stack for a while - 2 years! i finally photographed it for superhero day last month, but then was too busy getting product out the door to post that week and now here we are! the request was for a girl superhero party. birthday bea specifically wanted a superhero party because she wanted to dress up in a batgirl or supergirl costume. my original plan was to draw my own versions of batgirl and supergirl on top of the building. as usual, i started with google to refresh my memory, look at costumes, colors, etc. and i came across mike maihack's batgirl & supergirl fan comics. i love his take on colors and costume details, but, best of all, in the first frame i came across, supergirl spoke my little friend's sentiments exactly! he said it was ok that i use the image and the invite was complete, with a billboard instead of the characters themselves.
the billboard idea worked perfectly on the matching cake as well...
double sided, sitting on top of the cake, with a city skyline to match the invite all the way around. boom! pow! super sweet! i'm with supergirl. it really is all about the costumes!!
