In fairness, I’m keeping my promise!!!
After 3 months, here’s the last installment of Raviv’s superhero-themed birthday party at Gymboree, yahoo!
The Amazing Raviv’s Costume
First, let’s take a closer look at Raviv’s outfit:
Of course, he had to be Spider-man!!!
Handsome face behind the mask revealed!
Raviv loves this costume immensely. It’s a “muscled” The Amazing Spider-man Costume. He’s oh so proud when he wears it. I was lucky to have found a seller online who’s based in Sta. Rosa! Otherwise I had to order this from the US. Kumusta naman lang pagdaan pa sa costumes at sa port congestion, ‘di ba? This costume is actually for kids 7 and above, so it’s big for Raviv; the seller had no other stock so we had to make do with it. I got it in October, and I told Raviv he has to sleep early so he would grow and then the costume would fit him. Hahaha!
On Raviv’s invitation, we encouraged Raviv’s guests to come wearing superhero costumes, except for Spider-man. Mamaya may guest si Raviv na Spider-man na mas bonggacious pa ang outfit sa kanya, kawawa naman ang birthday boy.
League of superheroes, assemble!
In fairness, all of Raviv’s guests came as different superheroes. No one else came as Spider-man.
But, there were 2 Spider…er…girls.
This is Bella. Her mom, Lindsay Abcede-Sese asked me first whether her lovely daughter could be Spider-girl. Pwedeng-pwede!
Aside from Bella, Raviv’s cousin Yoona also came as Spider-girl. The kwento is that my sister-in-law Ruth forgot that guests should wear costumes! So the night before Yoona’s flight from Davao to Manila, Ruth and I were brainstorming what Yoona would wear. Magpa-panic daw si Yoona if she learns she doesn’t have a costume on a costume party (Yoona is arte like her Tita Dewmaine. Hehe). Then we finally agreed on something: Raviv’s other Spider-man costume plus Yoona’s tutu. Lookie-lookie:
Most of Raviv’s guests were also dressed to the nines, superhero na superhero!
Raviv’s classmate Ethan as Batman, and his classmate’s brother as Superman
Raviv’s schoolmate Sean as Wolverine…
…while his other schoolmate Anton was Capt. America!
Lia, daughter of my good friends Gerry & Mars, charmed everyone as Wonderwoman!
This boy came as Thor. His dad is Randy’s childhood friend and compadre
Juanmig—son of Randy’s friend—was either Ironman or a Transformer, according to Raviv.
Super duper daming “Super”!
And of course, there were lots of Supers: Superman, Superbly, Supergirl and Superwoman!
My inaanak Chug Chug was Superman…
Lucas and Ethan, too!
Tatay Randy was Clark Kent (who has undergone LASIK, I suppose, thus the missing spectacles)
Daddy Mike and Baby Marcus were a Superman & Superbaby tandem!
Kuya Dodong and Yaya Isay’s Baby Bethany was Supergirl…
…and of course, I was Superwoman! Here I was with my “minions”:
Even those who came without costumes went home as superheroes, thanks to the arts & crafts activity that was cape decoration.
Even though this party has since been months ago, I am still grateful to everyone who came! You amazed The Amazing Spider Raviv and his Super Parents.
Thank you, thank you, you all!

PS: In case you’re wondering where I got my costume, Lindsay—who’s from Australia—got it for me. She brought it when she arrived here in the Philippines only 2 days before Raviv’s birthday.
It came with everything, on the photo: top, skirt, boots, belt and cape. The blue leggings, however, were not included.
