Lightning Girl and Boy Thunder

Does your superhero get tired of that big satin cape dragging the ground, getting in the way of the carseat straps, and getting tangled during nap time?  Well, I know my caped avengers do.

So, we decided to solve the problem by sewing t-shirt scraps to the backs of a couple of t-shirts, and, voila! Lightning Girl and Boy Thunder were born.

Not content with just the capes, my method actors needed power cuffs.  So, we cut off the toes of some outgrown socks, and the heroes were shooting lasers around the neighborhood to their hearts' content! And I couldn't get those old socks off their wrists for 3 days straight.  

Laser, laser, laser, laser.

Now, the question is what are they going to do when they find out what REAL dress-up clothes are...
