Dad Makes Honey Lemon’s Special Chemical Purse for Daughter

Marvel doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to including their female characters in merchandise. Gamora was left out of Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise, and Black Widow was pushed aside yet again with the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron. They did slightly better with the two female team members of Big Hero 6. Go Go Tomago and Honey Lemon are both available as action figures and are featured on t-shirts with the whole group. But there’s not a ton to buy in the costume/dress-up department for either character.

Making Honey Lemon’s special power purse that manipulates chemicals available for purchase seems like a no-brainer. I think adults and children would purchase the colorful purse – especially if it lights up. But, since the purse isn’t available commercially, that means anyone dressing like Honey Lemon has to make it. Brandon Lee made one for his daughter.

He told BuzzFeed it was trial and error from the start. He cut the basic shape for the purse from EVA foam mats and filled it with foam and LEDs to light the heart-shaped periodic table on the purse. He used a coin purse for the teddy bear face on the front of the purse and rigged the hole on the other side with a magnet to hold one of Honey Lemon’s chem-balls.
