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.

    While I applaud the creative solution, whoever planned that party should get their head out of the 50′s.

    Not only is that a great idea, but I loooove how age-appropriate and cartoon-y the outfit it. Wonderful response to kiddy princess culture.

    Am I the only one scoring this family super-double geek points for naming their daughter Daria?

    She looks so cute! And what an awesome idea. Had I been invited to that party, I would’ve wanted to dress as Princess Leia, complete with blaster gun, when I was that age. This solution is even better.

    @ Frank Javier

    I totally agree.  The boys absolutely should be free to dress as princesses if they want.

    Well the only Prince and Superhero I can think of is He-man…

    I think his implied question was “what if one of the boys in attendance wanted to be a _princess_ and a superhero?”

    Way to wear a dress!!! Love it! All that typical princess pink organza gets in the way of being a kick ass girl. Go Daria! Go Dad!

    This is too awesome for words! I love this story, and what a great role model this little girl has in her father. So sweet!

    Namor (Marvel, atlantean prince)  other than that, lots of king and chieftain superheroes, but few princes that I can remember.  Prince Valiant?
