“She tricked me into this,” David Carlile said, unwinding a story of the hazy drunken trip to the costume shop, that resulted in ACL attire that was essentially underwear. There may or may not have been an actual contract involved, but Whitney Mayfield was clear that she managed to finagle a commitment out of him.

And yes, this all happened before it was cold, but the couple, who recently moved to Austin from Dallas decided they were in it to win it come what may. The costumes are a hat tip to the Eminem track “Superman.”

And on this dreary day let’s applaud the superhero spirit.
