An older gentleman on the train interrupted my reading the latest issue of “Captain Marvel” (yes, I’m behind) to ask me how much it cost.

The question was phrased with polite interest and mild nostalgia - it sounded as though he wanted a simple frame of reference, rather than to castigate what he perceived as frivolous spending on my part - and I showed him the price on the side.

"It was only ten cents back when I used to buy them!" he guffawed, and I laughed right along with him.

"If you’re interested, I’m sure you could find them at the library," I explained. "Not this particular volume, but the series was just a reboot of the last one, which had the same character and the same writer!"

He seemed to consider the suggestion, to my delight; then continued: “Does it still have Captain Marvel Junior? He’s the kid on crutches who got his power from Captain Marvel!”

…cue my gentle explanation of the difference between DC and Marvel, and how trademarks on the “Marvel” name mean that DC’s CM is just “Shazam” now.

"Well that’s what he used to say to turn into Captain Marvel!" the gentleman said, quite unnerved by this revelation. "Boy, I wish that when I said that I could transform!"

"Not Captain Marvel Junior, though," I countered. "He transforms when he says…"

We finished in unison. “CAPTAIN MARVEL!”

He got off the train right then, and the rest of my day was a bit brighter.

Finished Silas’ socks this morning! This pair was knit on sz us00 needles from my own handdyed sock yarn and pattern, and has 4800+ stitches :)

I suspect the rest of my crew will be jealous, so likely there are more socks in my future!

"I&#8217;m not making this complicated."

"I&#8217;m just going with the simplest version of the costume I can find."

"I don&#8217;t care that wrist guards with no finger protection would likely end with his fingers being literally sliced off. There&#8217;s a picture. It&#8217;s just as canon as the other versions. You LIKE canon."

"Just let this be easy."

"&#8230;damn it."

r u cosplaying the knitter
Oh goodness, I COULD do that. (…I might do that.)
But no! The actual character probably knits, but knitting isn’t central to their role at all. Good guess, though!
(Hint: It’s not a comic book character!)

I always told myself that I would attempt a cosplay if and when I could come up with the right idea. It had to be out of the ordinary without being obscure; simple to put together; and, of course, something that could involve knitting. More recently, it became a huge bonus if I could somehow integrate the dolls into the package. And, being a bit photo shy, it would help a lot if I could justify keeping my face out of photos whenever possible.

Folks, I had the idea. EVERYONE over a certain age will recognize it. Most of it can probably be thrown together with Salvation Army or consignment items. (I might even get to do a bit of dyeing.) It’ll put the focus directly on the dolls and well away from my face. And yes, the most important part of it WILL be knit.

…it’s not even horrible. Not at all. It isn’t. I swear!
