I wanted to share my costume with my son, so we decided to be Superman and coming out of a phone booth. I made the costume out of a wardrobe box. It comes complete with Clark Kent dress shirt and glasses, a public phone with phone cord (in the rear), and a crinkled front page of the Daily Planet (on the other side).
We walked the streets of Manhattan with our Superman Phone Booth costume, and I overheard a lot of moms explaining the costume to their kids (because the current cell phone generation does not know what a phone booth is!) Speaking of cell phones, I was surprised how many people whipped out their’s to snap a picture of us. I hope the photo does it justice!
