Meet Rainbow Warrior — An Invented and Homemade Halloween Costume Superhero

Homemade Halloween Costume Rainbow Warrior Full Costume

The Mouse, age 7, invented a superhero named Rainbow Warrior late last month. Her mind is a wheel that never stops spinning, even when it veers off into a ditch. Round and round and round it goes.

She and I created her hero’s logo in Adobe Illustrator and then she quickly went to work writing a brief but enchanting back story and sketching RW’s ensemble as she imagined it from — poof — thin air. For the past week, the Mrs., the lovely & amazing Mrs., worked her ass off for 3-4 hours each night after getting home from her day job to make this dream costume a very real reality.

This is a bit of a tradition, for the Mrs. to make from scratch Halloween costumes for the girls but this year’s invention of Rainbow Warrior takes the multi-colored cake as the most detailed and labor intensive project to date. But, when your daughter invents a superhero and writes her tale and sketches her ‘look’, what choice does a loving parent have but to make a Rainbow Warrior come to life? Exactly.

I haven’t even mentioned what the Mrs. has made for the Bear this year for Halloween. Not an original concept, a la the Mouse, but stunningly gorgeous nonetheless.

I’ll amend this post later with all-dressed up Halloween night photos, and maybe, if you’re lucky, you’ll be treated to the full story of Rainbow Warrior…someday.
