One year ago, power blogger Wendy Cheng (aka Xiaxue) gave birth to her first child, and a social media star was born. Of course, a birthday bash was in order to celebrate Dash’s first year. The Superheroes vs. Supervillains themed party saw some amazing costumes, elaborate decorations and food, as well as some of social media’s most popular figures.
Xiaxue as She-Ra and Dash as his namesake from The Incredibles.
The set up at Hokey Pokey Playground. Everything was The Incredibles-themed!
There was also a specially-designed menu for the food.
Cute photo booth props!
The birthday boy’s OOTD. He wears a custom-made suit (sourced by Xiaxue’s BFF) in a red and black theme, and tops off the outfit with black booties.
Dash and his grandma, who came dressed as Edna Mode.
“How does She-Ra pose ah? Like this right?”
“Okay Mom, I know they’re filming your show but you gotta admit that I have some star power at least.”
“Stop rolling guys, I have something on my delicate face.”
“She wore what to my party? Wow, someone call the fashion police.”
Xiaxue and Dash prepare to meet fans at a meet-and-greet before the party. Some fans started lining up three hours before it started.
“Mother, this rusk you’ve given me tastes awful.”
“So is this how selfies work?”
“Watch it there, your hair is getting in my face.”
“Yup, they’re all here for little ol’ me.”
“What? Someone came in the same outfit as me? How DARE they?!”
“Sorry I didn’t mean to spoil the picture, but I really needed to pee.”
Guests received these specially designed T-shirts.
Qiu Qiu as The Hulk (a very skinny one), Shuyin as Poison Ivy and Yutakis as Super Mario.
Rozz and boyfriend Justin as Maleficent and Guy Fawkes.
Shu An and boyfriend Joel as unicorn-Thor and unicorn-Batman.
Xiaxue and Dr. Georgia Lee, who came as Catwoman.
We caught Spider Man (Paul Twohill) sneaking a selfie.
Elmo made an appearance as well. Or rather, fake Elmo. We were told he had horns to avoid copyright issues.
Fake Elmo is a little overwhelmed to be meeting Dash in person.
Dash was momentarily kidnapped by the Evil Queen from Snow White.
Thankfully, he made a speedy escape.
Just in time to cut his birthday cake!
