The SuperPops challenge



This is my entry for a challenge being held by Cam of CurlyPops.

Cam, herself, recently took part in a challenge to incorporate a metre of gold braid into a craft project. She decided to sew herself a rather flash superhero costume (which she kindly modelled on her blog). SuperPops was born!


Image borrowed from here.

Now in turn, Cam has challenged her readers to depict SuperPops in the art medium of their choice. There have been fabulous entries in playdough, paper, felt, laminex, crochet and more. There's even a SuperPops toilet roll holder!

Mine is in watercolour and ink.



I couldn't help embellishing SuperPops' outfit a little. You see when Cam sewed her original costume, she decided it might be a bit over-the-top to add gold braid tassels to the top. So I've taken the liberty of adding them for her ( ... strictly for after-5 wear of course).

To see other entries, head on over here.

  5. Beautiful and powerful!! A great combo for a super pop of any kind. Love those boots. Her face reminds me of a girl version of Tin Tin, who I love. I actually love Snowy more but just by a whisker. xo

  8. Oh I love your version of superpops. Bravo for including the tassels! I also love the lines near the elbows, suggesting she may be 'shakin it'.
