She-Ra, Princess of Persistent Costume Fails


She-Ra is experiencing a Pinterest-induced migraine.

Remember She-Ra, Princess of Power? She’s the alter ego of Princess Adora, twin sister of Prince Adam/He-Man, leader of the Great Rebellion on Etheria, and Mattel’s 1985 attempt to sell crappy superhero merch to all the little sisters of He-Man fans across the nation.

This has prompted an entire generation of (now mostly grown up) She-Ra fans to fulfill their childhood fantasies of BEING She-Ra by falling under the hypnotic spell of Pinterest and trying to make a She-Ra costume for Halloween.


Here’s what happened when Allison (whose crafting motto appears to be, “Can’t stop won’t stop” – and we hope she never does) decided to recreate She-Ra’s golden headdress. First, a trip to the craft store for supplies!

Because the craft failing usually happens later, at home. Like with Attempt #1.

Followed by attempt #2.

Closer… How about one more try?

Let’s call it good enough. Now all she needs is She-Ra’s¬†choker and arm cuffs and golden knee-boots, and a skimpy white mini dress with winged boobs!

She’d better hurry up and get back to the craft store.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Allison was kind enough to send us an “after” photo of the finished costumes!

Lookin’ good, and thank you for sparing the world some real-life furry He-Man underwear!
