Christmas Goodies

We are basically nearing the end of the holiday season with Christmas around the corner and a New Year following right behind.

One thing that I have been pleased to note this year is how Supergirl is represented in gifts and holiday decorations this year. I am still amazed that Supergirl has become such a huge pop culture presence. For me, these last couple of years, every day has been Christmas. Just incredible.

Let's start out with the item that floored me. The DC Superhero Girls Supergirl was a collectible Christmas tree Ornament from Hallmark.

There are certain items that make me think that a character has 'made it'. One would be a Happy Meal toy (which we got for Supergirl earlier this year). Another would be a Hallmark ornament.

I'll be hanging this on my tree this year. It is a gift for myself that I'll open on Christmas Eve. Amazing!

But I also saw this the other day! A Supergirl specific Christmas Stocking.

I love that is has the specific S-shield and the pointy 'belt' portion and a cape. Brilliant!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! Hope you all have a great time!

...aaaaaand figures that Hallmark ornament wouldn't be available north of the 49th *sighs*
Nice find, Anj, and thanks for sharing!

Shopping around, one thing I noticed lacking from the shelves this year was a Supergirl
Calendar -- I saw calendars for Arrow, The Flash, and Gotham... but no loving (yet) for
the Maid of Might. I'm hoping next year, maybe...

Actually, there is a Supergirl Calendar:

Very nice stuff. It's great seeing more Supergirl's related goodies. It's always a good sign.

A pity Kara barely makes guest appearances in other comics. However, the upcoming Kara/Babs team-up gives me hope the current situation will change when the "My birth father is a super-villain" storyline is done.

Off-topic, but a new Injustice 2 trailer featuring Supergirl has been released. And she has a new spiffy suit.
