On the morning of October 1, our Twitter feed exploded with awesome photos of boys and girls, adults, kids, and pets (!!) sporting their favorite superhero attire:
After digging a little deeper, we found that Super Sisters, Leanna (5), and Adalina (7) were behind the #WearYourSuperhero movement!
According to their Wear Your Superheroes website, Super Sister Adalina was heartbroken when she found out that children at school were telling Leanna that, “superheroes are “for boys.” In order to show that, “superheroes are for everyone,” the girls and their parents designated October 1 as “Wear Your Superhero Day” and encouraged people to submit photos of themselves in their superhero gear. The response was outstanding with photos coming in on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and their efforts received coverage from media outlets including Marie Claire, and CNET!
Being a marketplace of Designers, we were curious to know: How many Zazzle products exist featuring female superheroes (of both pink and primary persuasion)?
We were pleasantly surprised by the search results: “Girl superhero” returned 4,805 products and “Supergirl” returned 10,232 products!
Here are just a few:
Some of our major brands, including DC Comics, Marvel, and Disney, feature superhero-themed products that are fully customizable with the name of your favorite “Hero” or “Shero.”
Adalina and Leanna had fun shopping our superhero selection and these shirts are on their way to their house!
