Just like real life, the superhero world has its share of “good guys” and “bad guys.” And when it comes to the “bad guys”, one of the frostiest characters around is Captain Cold. Despite his villainous personality, many folks actually like Captain Cold. As such, a homage to the chilly criminal would make a great winter party theme for teens. With that said, here’s a quick look at a few Captain Cold party favor ideas worth considering:
Captain Cold Snow Goggles
Captain Cold is known for his blue, Inuit style, snow goggles. Therefore, why not give each party guest their own pair of Captain Cold goggles? To my knowledge, there are no party supply stores that sell ready-made, Captain Cold goggles. Hence, you’ll need to make the goggles yourself. It is easy enough to do. In order to make the goggles, you’ll need a foam glasses kit. The foam glasses kit contains foam glasses and assorted embellishments. You can typically purchase a dozen kits through craft stores and party supply shops for less than $7 each. If you can’t find the kits, you could always opt to purchase sheets of blue foam instead.
Icicle Twist Pops
Icicle Twist Pops would make great party favors as well. Just like Captain Cold, the pops are cool, blue, white and twisted. They are made from spearmint flavored candy and may be purchased from party supply shops and candy retailers. In most instances, a dozen Icicle Twist Pops is apt to cost you $6. I’d suggest that you place the Icicle Twist Pops inside small, galvanized buckets and hold them into place with a handful of faux blue ice. Faux blue ice is made from acrylic. It is also sold through party supply stores, like Oriental Trading, for roughly $6 a bag.
Cold Guns and Ice Grenades
Two items in Captain Cold’s arsenal are cold guns and ice grenades. As such, you may want to consider giving your party guests your own version of the weapons. I’d suggest using squirt guns and foam grenades. Squirt guns and foam grenades are typically inexpensive and available for purchase through most toy stores. You can also purchase them in bulk through party supply shops. Prices for each one will vary based on the item’s quality and the retailer.
Light-Up Ice Cubes and Cups
Last but not least, you may want to consider giving your Captain Cold fans a set of Light-Up Ice Cubes and a glow-in-the-dark glass. After all, even cold-hearted villains need to relax and enjoy a chilly beverage at the end of a hard day’s work. The faux ice cubes are made from acrylic and light up when activated. Oftentimes you can purchase the glowing glasses and ice cubes through restaurant supply stores and specialty retailers. One retailer that sells such items is Glow With Us. Prices will vary, but tend to start at $70 a case (24 per case).
