This happened here in Philly tonight:
The Mummers Parade is one of my favorite Philly traditions because I’m drawn to anything with sequins, feathers, and choreography. Tonight, the Fancy Brigades competed, each putting on a Starlight Express-worthy dance number with some of the most elaborate, handmade costumes I’ve ever seen. There’s a lot from this year’s Fancy Brigades I want to share, but I had to get this one out right away because of dancing superheroes.
For their 2013 show, Bill McIntyre’s Shooting Stars did “Super Heroes! Super Villains! Super Thrills!” I can’t get the video to embed, so here are some stills:
It’s not the best representation of Mummers’ costumes, (there’s a shocking lack of sequins and feathers), but it’s still fun to watch! See the full number here.
