TINA PHAN/AMERICAN-STATESMAN

Instructions:

If you have a Superman T-shirt use it. If not take a blue T-shirt and a gold marker to create the logo. Wear it on top of a long-sleeved blue shirt. You can add padding with towels or a pillow to create muscles if you like.

Pin a red towel, sheet or T-shirt to the back of the blue shirt with safety pins. If you have time, you can create the Superman logo on the cape with a gold marker or yellow construction paper taped on.

On the bottom, wear red underwear on top of blue tights. Finish with boots.

Variations:

Change out the color scheme and shirt and you’ve got Batman or a lucha libre wrestler.
