My kid loves Wonder Woman. He loves Wonder Woman specifically because “her panties are stickin’ out.”
His obsession with panties started a couple years ago when I started to warm him up to the idea of using the potty like a “big boy.”
I have friends who hate the word “panties.” I don’t know why. I love it. It just rolls off the tongue….panties. pantiessss…
One day, I referred to his underwear as “manpanties” and the obsession was born. We can’t walk past a lingerie department or Victoria’s Secret without my little one exclaiming, “Mommy! Her panties are stickin’ out! I see her bubbies!”
(Total side note here: I still don’t know how or why he calls bras AND tits “bubbies.” He sounds like a Jersey Girl. It’s adorbs.)
I planted the idea of painting a pumpkin to look like Wonder Woman in his little head, but mostly because I wanted to paint her face and add doll hair or a little yarn wig. He was so enthusiastic about a Wonder Woman pumpkin…because her panties, indeed, stick out.
And my perfectly plump little pumpkin simply couldn’t handle a face, a wig, and a full costume, right down to panties!!! Also, I can’t paint a face anyway, so I gave in to his whim and concentrated on her costume, and especially her panties.
I have to say, I’m pretty pleased with the results. I’d love to add a template for you to make your own Wonder Woman pumpkin, but I didn’t use one, other than a little masking tape to create edges, and some cheap star stickers from the local craft store that I painted over and then peeled off.
Since Ron is Funemployed and my income is exactly zero bucks right now (Viva Funemployment!), I had to do this on the cheap. So I picked up a few bottles of acrylic paint at the craft store when it was 3/$1…ish. Not bad, and there’s a lot of paint left over, even though I had to coat the pumpkin several times.
And for what it’s worth, my son Gabriel LOST HIS MIND when he saw the pumpkin-in-panties. I’m calling it now–he’s either going to grow up and chase panties or wear panties.
