Bat Girl Inspired Costume Tutorial

(our pieces available for ages 2-9 years)

Are your kids as obsessed with super heroes as mine are? My niece loves Batman, “And it’s not just for boys!” she says. Ha ha. So we decided to make this darling little Bat Girl costume for those super hero loving girls of ours (or their parents 😉

With product from Always Under Pay, this was a super quick and fun one to make ourselves.

Materials Needed:

Black and Yellow Reversible Pettiskirt (You could also layer a yellow and black ballet tutu on top of each other for a different look)

Black Leotard

1.5″ Yellow Grosgrain Ribbon (about 2 yards)

2 Black Marabou Puff Clips

Scissors

Glue Sticks and Glue Gun

Black Felt

Yellow Felt

Instructions for Bows:

Yellow Boutique Bow (I made my own using the tutorial in the link, but you could also buy a boutique bow clip and remove the clip piece.) If you make your own, you will need about 1 yard of the 1.5” yellow grosgrain ribbon and about 6” or so of the 3/8” yellow grosgrain ribbon for each bow as well as about a foot of string.

Black Marabou Puff Clips

Black Leotard

Just glue your boutique bow to the center of the loopy bow as shown.

For Top:

I downloaded the free Super Hero Logo Template here. Then I sized the template to what I needed to fit the top and cut the pieces out of felt.

First I printed the template onto a piece of copy paper. Next, I attached it to the yellow felt with some pins.

I cut the yellow piece out by just cutting around the edge of the oval part of the template.

Then I cut the bat piece out of the paper template, attached it to my black felt with pins, and cut the bat piece (That black piece is oval because I accidentally did the first step with the wrong color. So, don’t worry. You didn’t miss anything important :)

I used a hot glue gun to adhere the yellow bat piece on top of the black felt oval.

Then hot glue the Batman logo onto the front of your leotard. Make sure you get it glued on good, especially the edges. They will lift on you if you don’t.

For Top:

I accidentally erased my photos for this part, but it isn’t too hard to describe. I downloaded the free  Super Hero Logo Template here. Then sized the template to what I needed to fit the top and printed a template on just regular copy printing paper.

First I attached the full template to the yellow felt and cut the outline of the template.

Then I cut the “S” part out of the template and attached it to the red felt piece with pins and cut that shape.

Then, I used the hot glue gun to attach the red piece on top of the yellow felt outline. Next I hot glued the full Super Girl logo onto the t-shirt.

Make a big yellow bow with the 1.5″ grosgrain ribbon. Trim the ends and use a lighter to heat set them so they do not fray. Hot glue the ribbon to the front of one of your tutus.
