In Case You're In the Market For...

A Saturday night conversation between friends about cloaks vs. capes as uniform clothing in the British public school system prompted me to do some googling, and see how common Harry Potter-esque attire is in English grammar schools...

My detective work proved interesting results. A Google search of "capes" revealed this - the Brooklyn Superhero Supply - you may think I'm kidding, but this store is for real. ..For all you aspiring Supermen and She-Ra's out there, apparently this your go-to place to stock up on supplies - when too many days and nights of crime-fighting, rescuing damsels in distress, and saving-babies-from-burning-buildings wear and tear at your costume.

Thought it was too hilarious to pass up.

The other great thing about this store is that it is also a space for a non-profit that provides creative writing tutoring to students - http://www.826nyc.org/ Check out this podcast where Dave Eggers explains the whole concept! Super cool idea! ~Robin
