Not All Heroes Wear Capes: Bar Mitzvah Boys Wear Kepot
 Jodi Gold, Siagel Productions

Siagel Productions produced an epic Bar Mitzvah celebration full of real-life superheroes, Marvel Lego figurines, and even a video-mapped, real-time Super Smash Brothers competition between the guest of honor and his brothers! From chair covers dressed with spandex capes to a custom-built brick wall back bar and super hero slap bracelet napkin rings, no detail was left overlooked for this hulk-sized mitzvah!
