The baby bat
Screamed out in fright,
"Turn on the dark,
I'm afraid of the light."
Back in 2012 when Squish had just started at nursery school, there was a dress-up day. All the other children arrived dressed like butterflies, fairies, tigers & firemen, but for some reason I had the urge to make a bat costume.
She looked super cute!
The bat top then came in handy the following Halloween, & when her little best friend saw it, she wanted one too, so I whipped another black-winged top up immediately.
They love them, to the extent that they are often worn to parties, for baking or just a trip to the shops. And because they are made from stretchy jersey fabric, they are super practical & still fit 2 years later!
And then I noticed during one of my IG surfs that BangBang Copenhagen (a seriously amazing & creative Danish brand that I frequently droll over) had included a similar item in their 2014 collection in the form of a hoodie - I was obviously on to a good thing!!
And with that, I decided to expand the bat love beyond Lula & her friends and give other aspiring bats to have one of these cool outfits.
Fun. Creative. Comfortable.
