For the last few months, Creators Media and #Hulu have partnered up to celebrate the release of #ThePowerpuffGirls on Hulu, with the streaming service airing full seasons of the girl-power superheroes in all their animated, crime-fighting glory.
To continue the Powerpuff party, we held the nationwide Real Life Powerpuff Contest in a bid to find amazing girls doing kickass things — whether it's starting their own business, building rockets, or inspiring their community. The rules were simple: Upload to social media a picture of the girl you wanted to submit, along with the hashtag #RealLifePowerpuff, tell us a little bit about why you chose her for the contest, and that was it! We got entries from all around the country that blew our minds.
And to cap it all off, we celebrated with a Real Life Powerpuff Day in Santa Monica, California.
Our Real-Life Powerpuff Day
With the help of some of our featured Real Life Powerpuff Girls, we had an incredible day. We invited girls to attend a day of workshops that included animation and illustration, dance, and even how to be a rocket scientist — literally.
First, they were escorted down a red carpet like they were real-life celebrities, and had their pictures snapped by professional photographers. After that, they were treated to Powerpuff Girls-themed snacks.
And that's when the real fun began.
Everyone had a great time — and the girls even had a dance session to get them pumped and moving!
Naturally, the girls were quick studies and good at everything they tried, whether memorizing a complicated dance routine or learning how to draw themselves as bubble animations. But what would you expect from Real Life Powerpuff Girls?
