Every Halloween, I feel the pressure to come up with a fabulous costume for my twins. This is all self-induced and absolutely insane, but I cannot help it. I’m obsessed. Our first year, we did the Dr. Suess theme with Ansley as the Cat in the Hat, Izzy was Sally and the twins were Thing 1 and Thing 2, very fitting considering their wild personalities. Last year, we were the Charlotte’s Web theme and that was cute, but couldn’t hang with my handmade Dr. Suess get-up. So this year, my older two aren’t really into themes and it’s just throwing me off completely! The girls are picking their own costumes, both TBD. So I’m just focusing on the boys. Enter, fliggity.com, stylish superhero capes that are absolutely presh!
Owen & Walker are going to be “Super-Owie and Super-Walkie”, they actually already pretend play this way. We found these capes that I just can’t brag enough about. The t-shirts have a custom embroidered “O” and “W” and they just think they are the ticket when they wear them. I bought some chocolate brown tights, a gold mask and I am going to paint a lightning bolt on their faces and these are going to be hilarious. They may hate me later in life for sticking them in tights, but oh well!
What I love about fliggity capes is that the capes are removable by two buttons on the back. You can order short-sleeved for warm weather and long-sleeved for winter and use these year-round. They don’t outgrow the capes for a long-time so you can just order new t-shirts as they outgrow them. Such a Smarty concept! I recently purchased this same cape for my nephew who turned 4. He opened the box and said out loud “oh, it’s more clothes. sighh. wait, it’s a Super Charlie cape – wahoo!” Kids get it and absolutely love it!

I am shocked at the prices for these items!
So cute! This is going to make a great Christmas gift in our house!
yea, $45 is a very hard pill to swallow for a shirt for a toddler. I could buy several dress up costumes for that.
Come on all you Smarty Moms, just copy the idea. Grab two buttons a needle and thread and perhaps a scrap of fabric and viola…super cute super hero’s for maybe two bucks. Now that’s Smarty!
We bought these and LOVE them! It’s so hard to find cute dress-ups for boys. These are exceptionally versatile. You can wear them as plain monogrammed tees (which if you go to any monogramming boutique you are charged $25+ for a long-sleeved custom tee). Then you can add your cape and it’s a cool dress up. Great gift idea – thanks for sharing!
Kudos to the mom above who gives a “smarty” way to make these at home vs. spending more money. Now THAT is smarty! Would love more articles on “smarty” ways to save -seems like there are always articles on how to spend…
Way too expensive!! I agree with the previous blogger, would love to see more concentration on “smarty deals” and ways to save epecially in this economy. There has to be other places out there that offer super cool kids items that don’t cost so much!
My 2&4 year old boys each have a superhero cape shirt and a "tie dye "My dad rocks" shirt. They LOVE them! I bought the My Dad Rocks shirts for them to wear Father's Day Morning. I bought my boys the cape shirts because they were dressing up in their super hero costumes ALL the time…and I thought this was such a great idea…As for grabbing a needle and thread and buttons and making your child a cape shirt….you won't be the first. But, if you want something this cute (and well-made), you're going to spend money on it…just like everything in the world. You get what you pay for, right? So, the smart mom in this is the woman who came up with the ideas for the shirts, invested in the machinery and materials to make the shirts and then went out to promote her business.
No, kudos to the last comment. Why would you not want to support this local mom who is designing such a cute product? The person who thinks it’s “smarty” to steal someone else’s ideas is clearly not that intelligent at all. That’s more like shady. Fliggity is awesome!!
