The first Comic Mummy DIY: Cape Up Your Batman!

Your materials.

I do love me a good DIY. Oh, if I had a penny for every DIY I’ve ever read (and never actually completed) I would have me enough pennies to think about making a damn fine penny-mosaic.

As such, I thought it high time I brought a little DIY magic onboard club Comic Mummy. This one’s a little bit of awesome I cracked out the other day, when Mister 7 approached me with the manners of a Deportment School graduate* (*may be code for whingeing) and asked whether I, his darling and extremely crafty mummy, might be able to conjure up a cape of sorts for his Batman figurine.

Child. Say no more.

The results were, I believe you could say, STUNNING.

And being the selfless crafty-mistress that I am, I couldn’t keep such resourcefulness to myself. So here it is. Instructions on how to achieve such lofty heights of brilliance yourself.

You will need:

– 1 Batman figurine (or insert your figurine of choice.)

– 1 Cape (either robbed from another figurine or bought. Or, if you are really desperate, just cut off a bit of tea-towel.)

– Stickytape.


Step 1: Take above-mentioned materials.

Step 2: Tape that mo-fo.

And voila!

Note: there is an optional Step 3, should cape tear off, which it occasionally* (*might mean regularly) will. In this case:

Step 3: return to Step 1.

If Step 3 recurs, then go to Step 4.

Step 4: hit your head against a wall. Then go to step 5.

Step 5: write a blog post.

    Truly wondrous. Might the same technique be used to keep his little bat-tools affixed to his tiny bat-hands?

    I’m so happy that you appreciate my genius! Oh absolutely. You can affix damn well anything with enough tape. Trust me. I’ve tried.
