DIY Batman & Batmobile

I recognize that Halloween is officially over.
But, I couldn’t help but post these fun pictures of my little man in his Halloween Costume!
If you have been reading here for any amount of time, you should know that my 
son is ALL about Super Heros.  It all started last year, when he was introduced
to Superman. You might even remember this costume from last year,
and even his Birthday party too.
So it should come to NO surprise that his costume of choice this year,
was ANOTHER Super Hero.
And since the one he chose was one that I KNEW a lot of kids would be
dressing up as this year.  I wanted Nixon’s to be a little bit unique.
So instead of buying a costume from the store, I of course in DavesWife Fashion.
Created a Fun Batman Costume that my little guy is in LOVE with!
and one that I KNOW will be worn more than just on Halloween!!
(the cape and mask, and boots came from Target, the leggings from Old Navy,
and his Shirt was an athletic shirt from Walmart that I sewed a batman logo onto.)
To finish it off, I used some stiff felt and velcro to create the perfect cuffs!
But WAIT!!! that is not all!!!
Batman needed something to get around in right?
So I made over a Fisher Price Cozy  Coupe and turned it into one SWEET Ride!
Here is what our cozy coupe looked like before “Operation Batmobile”
I simply took 4 Cans of Black Spray Paint to this!
After letting it dry for 24 hours, I cut some Batman Logos, and headlights out of 
Yellow Vinyl with my Silhouette!
The Result was Priceless!!
 Nixon was the hit of the neighborhood driving around in his Batmobile Trick or Treating!
I hope you ALL had a Safe & Wonderful Halloween!

  12. You are the best mom ever. That is the coolest idea I have seen yet for those old little cars.

  13. SWEET!!!!

  14. My first thought after “How dang stinking cute!” was that that was a lot of work for one night. I quickly realized that he can drive around in this until he doesn’t fit anymore, and it is a million times better than it was. Now I’m wondering what I can makeover…

  15. Oh my apple pie! My daughter would love that! In fact, I have an old barbie corvette power wheels that I desperately want to turn into the batmobile now. My daughter would flip out! Thanks for the awesome idea! Grabbed your button!

  16. This is so adorable, you did a great job.

  17. So cute. Would you consider cutting some of the vinyl batman decals and selling them?

  18. oh my goodness, girl, this is awesome!!!! serious vision, my friend;)

    Super cute! I’m hoping you can help us out as we try to make our son’s cozy coupe over as well. We’re finding that the spray paint is scratching off *very* easily. 🙁 Any ideas why?

    • Beth, it can be the type of spray paint you used. If you buy the kind that is made for plastic {i know Rustoleum makes some} you probably won’t get any chipping. Or you can spray an acrylic clear coat on it to give it extra protection :0)

  20. Hello, i think that i saw you visited my site thus i came to “return the favor”.I
    am attempting to find things to enhance my site!I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!!

  21. Your son’s Batman costume and Bat-mobile are FANTASTIC! I love what you do, thank you for the tutorials.
    Are our kids related? My son wanted Superman last year for Halloween, and I used your tutorial for his costume. It came out AWESOME! He looked so cute! so much more creative than pulling out a store bought costume. What was great was that he got a lot of use out of it. He had 5 Halloween events, including one Halloween birthday party.
    This year he wants Batman so here I am again using your tutorial. He wants the old Justice League Batman (grey and black) I’ve got some work cut out for me, but I can’t wait. Last year was a blast!

    PS last year though, the red spray painted boots were peeling, any advice?
