Little Girl in a Tutu Makes the Best Deadpool Ever

I think the Merc With a Mouth himself wouldn’t mind if a bizarre plot twist made him come back from the dead as this totally awesome three year old. According to her mom, she came up with the idea herself and bossed her dear parent around until it was created for her. You can find more pictures like this on the original post, or at our Tumblr.

When you ask your child what they want to be for Halloween and they respond with “Princess Nyan Cat,” the only possible response is “yes.”

Dad and Baby Daughter Alien Power Loader Costume: Now With Video

Yesterday morning we shared a single photo of an awesome dad who built a power loader costume complete with a tiny Ripley, played, of course, by his own daughter. Yesterday afternoon, we received an email with a link to this video and a special message:

I check in with your site every day, and I was totally excited to see you posted the photo of my baby’s Alien Loader Halloween Costume! …I really appreciate all you do for girl geek culture. I secretly hope my daughter will grow up a proud girl geek of the type you promote every day.

And after that, of course we had to show it to you guys. Here’s a dad and his proud geek girl off to a very good start. (P.S., viewers, make sure you stay until the :37 mark.)

If The Joker Were A Child, This Is What He’d Be Saying [Meme]

A while ago, someone posted an image of their 2-year-old’s Joker Halloween costume. For some reason, Reddit just picked it up and made a meme out of it. It’s interesting to see what a baby Joker would concern himself over. Take a look.

Why Not Do It With Some Style?

The Wonderful Costumes Of WonderCon

Earlier today we brought you an adorable father/daughter cosplay from WonderCon. We didn’t get to attend the convention this year, and perhaps neither did you so we figured, why not show you some more awesome costumes attendees wore this weekend? There were plenty. Let’s start off here with some delightful Disney cosplay: Tiana, the Evil Queen from Snow White, and Maid Marian! (via Nathan Rupert) Hit the jump for lots more!

Father Sews Wonder Woman Costume For Daughter So She Can Be Princess and Superhero

When invited to a birthday party whose theme required that the boys dress as superheroes and the girls as princesses, dad Jay C. Batzner came up with an awesome compromise that simultaneously stomped on the face of gender normativity and made his daughter happy. Wonder Woman, both a princess and a superhero, had long been Daria’s favorite hero, so he sewed her this costume.  We think this might be one of those steps to raising kickass daughters.
