ordered this Justice League Child's Batgirl Costume just a couple of months before Halloween
after asking our three year old daughter what she wanted to be. The
question was asked to both our little ones simultaneously, and since her
big five year old brother wanted to be Batman, our little girl also
wanted to be Batman. But my clever wife instead showed her the Batgirl
outfit and she was immediately convinced!
Elizabeth “Betty” Kane first appeared in 1961 in the DC Comics Universe
Number 139 Batman comic book as Batgirl. She discovered that her aunt
Kathy Kane was fighting crime with Batman as Batwoman, and urged her to
teach Batgirl the secrets of being a superhero.
Batgirl costume more closely depicts the 1967 Library Science Doctorate
Barbara Gordon, introduced in Detective Comics Number 359 and written
into the Batman television show the same year as Batman’s love interest.
The costume shows her during her team affiliation with the Justice
League of America.
wife was the one who received the Batgirl costume and prepared it, and
when it was time to dress them up for trick or treating, I had my first
glance at our cute superhero daughter. She looked amazing! The costume
was of such excellent quality that it made her look like a living
batgirl costume came ready to fight crime with a highly glittered eye
mask, a cape, her centerpiece with the golden bat emblem, faux sharp
gauntlets and Batgirl’s signature utility belt. To round out her
superhero capabilities, the Bat girl costume comes equipped with the
crime fighting power of a sparkling tutu.
a hurricane swept through our area, it left behind much damage and
multiple days without electrical power, water and heat. With the whole
family stuck inside in the cold weather cooking out of a backyard grill
just before Halloween, we decided to take the kids from the darkness of
the neighborhood during the evening of Halloween and ventured into a
local establishment that offered heat, electricity and civilization -
between fighting crime and habitating in her dark cave, our little
Batgirl was in her zone as she collected chocolates, stickers and candy
throughout the mall. The long lines and intense heat were no match for
her Batgirl defenses. She owned her character and lived it cutely into
the darkness of the night. We returned home happily to our dark bat cave
with continued power outage.
the time the weekend came around, we had power back and my wife was
able to put together the Halloween party she had been dreaming about for
weeks. With our thirteen year old Egyptian princess playing DJ, our
Batgirl flew through the home and in cute three year old voice claimed,
“I’m here to save the day!” And she flew powerful, crime fighting
circles around the multi colored strobe lights until she gave in to her
ultimate nemesis: the sweet embrace of bed time.
