Batman was seen in Bradford this week handing in a criminal to the local police station. He vanished before cops could find out who he was, but this concept caused a bit of a stir with the girls. They went to the video shop and hired out some superhero films such as Batman, Superman, Catwoman, and Kick Ass. Everything was going well; wine and popcorn was flowing all the way through the first two films. Then they got to Catwoman, a truly awful film, but her outfit was great. “I want one of those” said Gayle. “We could all go out and fight crime. We could be a superhero team”.
And then they watched the movie 'Kick Ass'
“Wow” was a common comment all the way through the film. “Maybe we should just get the costumes, we don’t need to go and fight crime”, said Gayle. Others agreed. The film was so violent, Claire and Donna spent most of the film with a cushion in front of them.
“We know they all wear scuba suits. Maybe we can order a load in bulk, then paint them when they get here”, said Colette
“Can I get a cape as well”, said Louise. " Every superhero needs a cool cape."
And so outfits were ordered. Arriving two days later, the girls tried the outfits on. Now I don’t know if you’ve ever tried on a Scuba diving suit, but these things are tight. In fact any lumps and bumps on the girls were highlighted even more when they were in the suit. This led to a bunch of grumpy women talking about diets. That was until Louise reminded everyone about capes. “Capes”, she said, ‘ could hide a multitude of sins”. And so the main hall curtains were ripped down, and before we knew it, the girls all had a red flowing cape, and a scuba suits!!
Lau said, “what about masks? We can’t let anyone know our secret identities”. And then the sewing machines, still hot from the capes were started up again, making masks for everyone and then little frills to be sewn onto the capes. Then someone suggested sequins, and a few hours later, the edges of each cape glowed in the sunlight.
They were ready. A line of woman all in identical superhero costumes, all holding their capes over their various wobbly bits. A sight to strike fear into the hearts of any villains (and any good people too).
“I want the “Brad Pitt appreciation team”, said Claire.
“What about ABBA”, said Maritha.
And this went on for hours until they settled on Team Teddy Bo Delta Force Crafting Experts...it hardly rolls off the tongue!!!!
Next week, we’ll find out about their first big superhero adventure.
