It Only Takes a Costume To Become a Superhero!

My son Caden turned nine last Wednesday so we had a big birthday party for him at our house on Saturday.  I let Cade pick out the theme for his party and he decided on "Superheroes".  With the Batman movie The Dark Knight being released Friday he already knew that's exactly who he wanted to be.  So Friday night my husband and I took him to see the movie (with everybody else in the free world).  It was packed but honestly it was really cool because everybody in the theater was cheering on Batman so Cade really got into it.  By the way, the movie was (as Cade would say) AWESOME!  I was looking forward to it because I liked Batman Returns, but I had no idea it would be as good as it was.  In my blog earlier that day I said that a lot of reviews had Heath Ledger earning an oscar for his role as Joker and now that I've seen the movie, I wholeheartedly agree with it!  He was amazing.  You would have never guessed it was Heath Ledger playing the part.  Nothing in the Joker's character would have given it away.  Anyway, if you haven't seen the movie you should! Back to the party...  Caden made a very handsome Batman (if I do say so myself) and what was so neat was that every one of his friends came as a Superhero of some sort.  Thankfully Caden was the only Batman, but we did have Superman, Spiderman, The Green Flash, Captain America, Zorro, a few of the Power Rangers, The Incredible Hulk plus a couple Ninja Turtles thrown in for good measure.  The kids loved it!  They were on a sugar high all day, running around with masks on and capes flying. 


If you need an idea for a theme party for your child's birthday, then you have to throw a "Superhero" party.  Believe me your child and their friends will have so much fun and it will be a party they won't soon forget!  Check out our kids Superhero costume page here at Halloween Express and let your kids decide which Superhero they want to be for the day!
