With all the ads out for the Watchmen movie, the Things have become re-obsessed with superheroes and costumes.
This is Thing Two's interpretation of the perfect superhero.
At first I thought he was going for the Rorschach look, after all that's the latest face covered superhero, but now that I think about it he looks more like the Invisible Man. Only shorter.
He demolished his Darth Vader hooded cape to make the face cover and even got into my sewing basket to sew up the back of it. The goggles are daughters snowboarding goggles, the hat is Thing One's and the coat is the only piece of designer clothing I own.
After I took the picture I made him hang the coat back up in my closet and told him if he ever touched it again I would rip his lips off with the hedge clippers.
The top item on his birthday list is a trench coat.
