This was our first year attending Comic Con in San Diego, CA. Since we were just matched with a baby we decided to take him along on this adventure! I wanted go in family cosplay as Popeye, Olive Oyl and Sweet Pea but He wasn’t thrilled about it.It made total sense to me because there are three of us and three of them. The costumes would be easy to make and it’s one of the few character cosplays that includes an infant.

In the 11th hour I remembered that my sister just bought the baby a shirt with a Superman cape velcro’d to it and the wheels started turning!

I glued velcro onto a dark blue long-sleeved onsie and put some dark blue stretchy pants on him. I remembered that he had some red socks. Look! Up in the sky … .it’s a bird …. it’s a plane … it’s …. it’s …. SUPER Baby! Lol

We arrived late Saturday evening hoping to escape the crowds but there were still plenty of people milling about. We took turns with the baby in a sling so we could protect him from the hordes. We took a few photos and then headed down to the the exhibit hall. We saw a few cool things and took a few more photos:

She-Ra, the Princess of Power! Remember her?

Everyone LOVED the baby’s costume! People kept stopping us and complimenting us. A few even told us stories about bringing their kids to Comic Con. It was a fun day, but I’m not sure if I’d go again. There were a LOT of people and there wasn’t much to do except buy things. Have you been to Comic Con? What did you think?
