Super Man

A penchant for dress-up comes and goes in waves around our house. The above was taken during once such period of enthusiasm earlier this summer. Here are some of the things I love about how Mabel plays dress-up: she is always totally clear as to which garments from the bin of dress-up clothes ought to be put on; once they are on she has pithy words to explain exactly what she is dressed up as (in this case, obviously: Super Man); and, when the attire really clicks for her, she suddenly--like the great method actresses--inhabits a whole new physicality of movements and gestures to represent to character of the moment.
