Adventures in the life of a gorram nerd

Superhero capes

2 days before Man of Steel premiered in 2013, my friend Ben texts me with “Hey, can you make me a Superman cape for the premiere?” Some frantic googling for a tutorial (I used this one, which was wonderful), Jo-Ann shopping, and texts of “only if you help” brought Ben and 3 friends over to my house and they became my assembly line. We made 5 capes. Ben had a solid red one and at the movie, a little kid whispered to his mom “look! It’s Superman!”. The rest of us had our initials sewn onto the back (B for Brian, D for Dayana, M for Maggie, and C for Carolyn). I used felt for the applique letters. Candice (who didn’t want a cape but was cool being a helper elf… first time I met her too) drew all the letters and cut them out.
