Purple,green and gold cape please for Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Please?
I hope everyone has been enjoying their Amazing Capes! If anyone has ideas/feedback/musings they would like to share please do- email me at firstname.lastname@example.org We will be exploring new materials, sizes and styles to come at www.amazingcapes.com <3
All the capes shipped out in early February! If yours never arrived it either 1. was lost in the mail :/ or stuck at customs or 2. there was a handful of folks we never received a survey from and we had no address to send to (however all of you would have received a message from me). Krista- just got your message, a cape will be on the way shortly :)
Hi I was just wondering when my cape would be sent? Or if there were any updates since Feb?
David, Sounds like you put it to the test! Hope it was a super fun day. Feedback is always appreciated. For example, the pocket originally had a velcro closure in the design, but I took it out because kiddos couldn't seem to stuff their hand in fast enough ;0 We will be working on either making the large cape broader in the shoulder area and/or creating an XL size that has more breadth. As well as more colors, fasteners and styles to come!! Please stay tuned :)
Robert- Cool- me too! ;)
OK, wore my cape inside out on Mardi Gras day, pictures to follow. The cape wore very well. Over the course of the whole day, the neck strap gets old. My pocket was on the outside and didn't close, so it got caught on a door nob and ripped on both sides about an inch on the outside and an inch and a half on the inside. Also the cape had trouble staying on my shoulders and mostly congregated in center of my back. I have a solution- a small Velcro kit to allow the wearer to keep the cape on the shoulders if that's what they choose. The cape overall went over very well, and the inside rainbow stripes added greatly to my over all appearance and didn't detract as I had feared a bit. So I'll buy another cape for next year, and one for Halloween, and give a bunch away to family members and friends. Remember- purple, green and gold for 2014!
I got my cape and it's beautiful. One day, I'm going to have a kid who will flip over it. But until then, it's mine to play with.
The capes are gorgeous! Two days in a row now I've put one on as soon as I got home from work and worn it around the house. Thanks :-)
Roxanne, the three capes arrived a couple days ago, and the granddaughters are loving them. Heck, even my daughter and I got them away from the girls for a bit and went flying around the house in them.....thanks a bunch!
Our three pack of capes arrived yesterday and they are amazing! They caused great excitement and happiness and there was much flying around the house :) I wish I'd got one for myself as well, so I'm off to the website! Thank you - they're brilliant.
Christopher & John, I'll be working on an XL version as things get underway..! Scott- awesome!! :)
Aw man. My cape arrived today and I was so excited, but for some reason it just won't fit my throat. I'll give it to my stepbrother as a gift, he'll like it! It's very beautiful, even if I can't wear it.
Got my three-cape delivery last week (two for my wife, one for our friends' 6-year-old daughter), and I'm not sure who was more excited! My wife ran around the house like a little kid in her rainbow cape, which made the whole thing worth it. Thanks so much, Roxanne! :)
I just got my cape in and my only criticism I have is I can't wrap that bad boy around me. Would have loved if it did more in the shoulders as well but otherwise it's pretty damn awesome!
Lance- I would love to see pics!! email@example.com ! And Michelle- your family sounds super super!!!! Thank you all for your support! :)
The capes are AWESOME!! I got the four-pack - and when the family arrived home, I had them randomly select one of the bundles from the box. I left for the evening with my almost 13-yr old girl running around in her pink cape and my 10yr old girl in her black one. My husband is planning to wear his as he teaches his middle school students. We are now a family of super-heroes! Such a great project that I was honored to support.
Roxanne the cape I ordered for my 3 year old son Duel arrived last Saturday before I took him to SeaWorld. He has rarely removed it. And keeps wanting to know where my super cape is. Thanks for a great idea and will send some pics.
My capes arrived today and they are gorgeous! Love them and can't wait to give them to my nieces and nephews! They are so well made, the pocket is genius and the colors and fabric are beautiful. Incredibly delighted by your Amazing Capes!!!
Would love to see a photo David- sounds like a blast!! Happy Mardi Gras!
And everyone is welcome and encouraged to post photos flying round with their capes on our fb page https://www.facebook.com/AmazingCapes- or via instagram #amazingcapes, or to email me pics at firstname.lastname@example.org to post on the blog etc. Thank you everyone!
Wearing my amazing cape with the purple side out at the Mardi Gras! Fabulous time with the cape, and the rest of my purple, green and gold costume. I'm wearing a frog hat that is really fun. Caught 5 coconuts at Zulu, and gave away 2. Happy Mardi Gras to all!!
Thank you so much, the capes arrived safe and sound. They are so cute and I love how adorable they looked in their little gold burritos.
My sister and I got our capes in the mail today and we both love them so much! Thank you for all the hard work you have done on them!
THANK YOU! Capes received and they are...AMAZING! Will drop you some pics soon but now I have to fly ;-)
I got my Cape in the mail today , awesome thank you Roxanne :D
Happy Mardi Gras, did you read your Amazing Capes blog entry, the link is below. Hope my cape has been sent, I have FAITH!!
My blog entry on Amazing Capes http://blog.carnivalneworleans.com/…
It has been an amazing journey for you, Roxanne, I'm really proud of you for realizing one nice vision of yours, the Amazing Capes venture. Keep up the fantastic work! I'm so excited about my cape and my new Mardi Gras costume piece. I guess I'm going to do a feature on my Mardi Gras blog about Amazing Capes!!
Hi David, doing well, thanks- keeping busy! Yes, capes should be ready to ship out by Feb 4th! Happy Mardi Gras to you!
How are you doing, Roxanne, with my Mardi Gras deadline of Feb 12? BTW, Happy Happy Happy Mardi Gras to all Amazing Capes backers, workers, Roxanne of course, etc.
No worries, thanks for the response Rox, I'm just so excited to receive it :-D
All of the capes should be ready to ship out by the end of the month!! Thank you for your patience... there were pleasantly more capes to have made than expected ;)
Has there been any updates lately? I want my cape!! Haha :-D
I can't wait to wear my cape with my spandex!! :D
Hi! I answered the survey, but I didn't see a place to enter my size preferences. Did I miss that? Excited! :)
Came back to up my pledge and get a cape - but can't see how to do that? :-( Let me know if we can still order the capes for $35 :-)
Preeeeeetty sure they'll send out a survey soon.
Yep, check the questions at the bottom of the main page.
paid 35 bucks last night and am happy to do so, but I didn't see where I could order the colors and size I need, I'm a large and I need a purple and green cape, please. Purple outside, and green inside. It's for my Mardi Gras costume, either this year or next. I always dress in the purple, green and cold colors of the New Orleans Mardi Gras. Thanks very very much!
I'm sorry but i have to cancel my pledge for now. But i will by one from the site once it's up.
..... Thought I could handle 4..... But I couldn't decide which '1 friend' I'd be sharing with..... So 10 it is..... It's a strange combination of -_____- 、 *･゜ﾟ･*:.｡..｡.:*･'(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)'･*:.｡. .｡.:*･゜ﾟ･* and :3c
I tried to resist, I mean what do I need a cape for? Then I realized, what DON'T I need a cape for!!!
We used to wear them while re-enacting cartoon rpg adventures on the snow mountain behind our grammas house! Wooden swords in hand, we were adventurers!
Believe it or not, we haven't stop, adventuring that is! But maybe the adventure is missing something.... a cape.....
Thanks for bringing some kid back!
This is fantastic. I'm so glad to see that the project funded! Can't wait to get my cape.
is the teal and orange one available? other than that, just backed! hope all goes well
Congratulations on making your goal Roxanne. This is a wonderful idea, absolutely superb. "The kids"* will love them and are already very, very excited about the prospect of having their own capes.
*Note: kids may not technically exist.
Not really interested in capes, but the video showed alot of thought and care put into the presentation and Roxanne seems passionate so I couldn't resist throwing in a pledge just to support!
This will be the 7th addition to my cape collection. Thank you for being awesome, having awesome ideas, and putting on this awesome kickstarter.
So pumped about this its crazy.
