Look! Up in the sky!

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's...a plain looking amigurumi business man?

Huh. Well, that's kind of boring. But wait! He's taking his jacket off...
No wait, it's Superman! Ha ha. This little Superman is so cool! He can change into Clark Kent and everything. Okay, here's how it works.

The blue jacket (from the first picture) has the gray undershirt and tie all sewn together. It has working buttons to keep everything together. Yeah--they actually work. Then, when you want to change him into Superman, you unbutton the jacket, take the jacket and glasses off, spin the little jerry curl that's hidden under his hairline (I thought that part was especially hilarious) and attach his cape. The cape has little hooks sewn on, and I sewed the loops directly onto Superman's body. The way the cape is positioned, you can't even see the hooks!

We used Gorilla Glue to glue on his "S" so that there wouldn't be any holes, like there would have been if I had sewn it on. Let me just tell you--Gorilla Glue is AWESOME. That stuff is crazy strong. That "S" is not coming off anytime soon.


I am so pleased with how this turned out. I think he looks fantastic, and I absolutely love how he can change costumes. Let me know what you guys think! We're hoping to get lots done on this three-day weekend, so hopefully I'll have another post for you guys tomorrow.
