Friday Faves 72 - Heroes and Heroines

It's getting to be about that time of year again when people like to dress up for Hallowe'en in all sorts of costumes some of which include the ever popular hero or heroine. So that's part of what we'll be exploring in this week's Friday Faves, costumes. But we'll be looking at other aspects of our favorite heroes and heroines as well.

One of my favorite heroes was from a show called The Greatest American Hero from wayyyyy back in the early 80s. The series only ran for three seasons but I sure enjoyed it whenever I was able to catch it. So I'm going to spin you the theme song from that to help set the mood for our hero and heroine shop hopping.

Now, let's go -- Up! Up! And away! Woops! I mean, let's go shopping!

Hero/Heroine Shop 1
Shop name: Dan's 2324 The Art Mart

This is an absolutely amazing Batman Begins costume that can be made to your exact measurements.

Hero/Heroine Shop 2
Shop name: snlmoehunt

One of the hardest costumes to recreate, I believe, is Mystique's of X-Men fame, but I think this artist has done a very fine job of it. Just check out the incredible detailing -- even down to the toes!

Hero/Heroine Shop 3
Shop name: The Angry Robot

So you say you love all things Superman but you can't exactly wear a Superman costume to work? Well, I've found the perfect solution for you in this great paracord bracelet!

Love the shop name!

Hero/Heroine Shop 4
Shop name: Funck Love Designs

So you say that the only real hero comes from Ancient Greece or Rome? Okay. I feel ya. I love mythology myself and who doesn't enjoy a good Greek Myth now and then, right? Straight from Southern Greece we have Theseus and confined in the Labyrinth in Crete we have The Minotaur! I think we all know who wins this!

Just try saying this shop's name ten times fast. ;-)

That's all for this week's Friday Faves. I hope you enjoyed it. If I didn't feature your favorite hero or heroine, just remember that there is bound to be a shop at Etsy where you can find your particular favorite's collectibles.

Please be sure to drop back in for Music Monday when I'll be featuring the music of the 1920s and this week's Tuesday Tutorial will be on Origami.

Until then, have a great weekend everyone and take care out there!
