I never thought I would be writing a post about Wonder Woman and a fantastic quilt connection but I am! You may remember that I am a fan of Wonder Woman, I wore my own modified version of her costume for Halloween. I got to wear it again (getting my money's worth) before I went to see the movie. I completely enjoyed the film but it's too long for my granddaughter. However, her love of Wonder Woman led me to discover the quilt connection.
It all began with Wonder Woman day at a local comic book store. If you dressed as Wonder Woman there were a variety of gifts and discounts available. As my husband always says, "Freebies are the best!"
I wore my red dress, star leggings, crown and bracelets. Emily wore my care with a blue shirt and star leggings. Zara wore a white shirt with star leggings and carried my golden lasso. It was so fun!
They had "Wonder Woman" there in person with great messages for kids. Z was in awe and scored a free paper crown, cuffs and merchandise. I got a 25% discount and bought books for my own little wonder woman, as did her mom.
We've worked our way through the books and have acted out Wonder Woman numerous times. Tonight we were reading the book on the far right bottom, Super Hero Girls. I read this page and I couldn't believe my eyes.
Here's a scan on the pages. I've circled the Costume Design teacher's name - Mr. Crazy Quilt. Yes, you read that right, Mr. Crazy Quilt. I love it.
I am not a purist nor original comic book fan but I have gathered, from internet searches, that some long time fans are not so happy. Crazy Quilt is a villain and you can read his whole back story here. He has also had various incarnations which I learned of at this page.
His latest makeover, as design teacher at Hero High, seems fabulous to me. Let's expose youngsters to powerful role models and sneak in some quilt knowledge! Comics change all the time, this is one more.
Now I am just waiting for Quilt Girl to enroll at Super Hero High, stay tuned!
