Bam! Zlonk! Eee-yow! {Neon Sharpie Fight Words}

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Sharpie, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #NeonSharpie  https://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.

The Cs absolutely cannot wait for Halloween this year. They have their Batman and Robin costumes. They have their Batmobile. They have a constant craving for candy. But even with all of our planning so far, I was still feeling like something was missing. My Connor is very into the old Batman shows from the 1960s– you know, the ones with the fight scenes that cut to words like “KAPOW!” “CLANK!” and “BIFF!” Their costumes didn’t feel complete without that little homage to the original show, so when Sharpie asked me to test drive some of their neon markers, I knew just what I was going to do with them!

This project was super simple and really fun to put together. I only needed a few supplies:

  • Neon Sharpies {found at Target}
  • Foam Board
  • Templates (unless you’re confident in your drawing skills, which I am not!)
  • X-acto Knife

Step 1- Trace the Templates

As I mentioned in my DIY Batmobile post, I’m no artist, so I printed the words and shapes I wanted to use for my “fight words” onto card stock and traced the templates onto the foam board to create my outline.

Step 2- Work Those Neon Sharpies!

Once I had all of my fight words outlined, it was time for the fun part! I flipped on Harry Potter {oh yes I did!}, busted out my Sharpies, and began coloring away. I colored the outline of the “burst” shape and the words, and then I added some dots in contrasting colors to give it a little bit of a retro look.

I must admit, when I started this project I thought to myself, “There is no way these markers are going to stand up to all of this coloring. They are going to dry up or give out on me before I’m finished.” But they totally proved me wrong! They kept going and going, even with a lot of use! I was impressed! {Side note: The neon writing also becomes florescent under a black light. Mind. Blown.}

Step 3- Outline and Cut

To really make everything “pop,” I outlined the shapes and words with a black Sharpie.

Very carefully, I used my X-acto knife to cut out my shapes, and they were ready to go!

Connor and I decided to have a little fun with them before we attached them to the Batmobile.

Don’t mess with this guy!

We eventually grabbed “Robin” and headed outside with the Batmobile!

They are loving it! I think our neon Sharpie signs *finally* complete their costumes for Halloween, and I am so excited to see them rock it for trick or treat. They’ll be the talk of the neighborhood, I’m sure!

Have you tried out Neon Sharpies yet? What did you create?

  1. What a great idea! They really do complete the costumes. Those whams and kapows were my favorite part of the old Batman show. Well, those and “Same Bat-Time! Same Bat-Channel!” 🙂

  9. I absolutely love my Sharpies, so I had to read this–too cute! I love how you worked the neon colors into the costumes. My younger ones are into Star Wars for Halloween, but these would be great for school projects.
