      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 roxanne@amazingcapes.com We will be exploring new materials, sizes and styles to come at www.amazingcapes.com <3

    2. Creator Roxanne on May 23, 2013

      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 :)

    3. Creator Krista O'Malley on April 14, 2013

      Hi I was just wondering when my cape would be sent? Or if there were any updates since Feb?

    4. Creator Roxanne on February 27, 2013

      Everyone- YAY!

      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! ;)

      Hey Roxanne,
      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!

    6. Creator Robin Scott on February 22, 2013

      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.

    7. Creator Thorne & Erin on February 22, 2013

      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 :-)

    8. Creator Donna Komm on February 20, 2013

      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!

    9. Creator Karen McAllister on February 20, 2013

      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.

    10. Creator Roxanne on February 19, 2013

      Christopher & John, I'll be working on an XL version as things get underway..! Scott- awesome!! :)

    11. Creator John Harrison on February 19, 2013

      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.

    12. Creator Scott Garsed-Donnelly on February 18, 2013

      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! :)

    13. Creator Christopher Desjardins on February 18, 2013

      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!

    14. Creator Roxanne on February 16, 2013

      Lance- I would love to see pics!! roxanne@amazingcapes.com ! And Michelle- your family sounds super super!!!! Thank you all for your support! :)

    15. Creator Michelle Gardes on February 16, 2013

      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.

    16. Creator Lance Barr on February 15, 2013

      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.

    17. Creator Roxanne on February 15, 2013

      Hurray!

    18. Creator Barbara Griffin on February 14, 2013

      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!!!

    19. Creator Roxanne on February 12, 2013

      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 roxanne@amazingcapes.com to post on the blog etc. Thank you everyone!

    20. Creator David Eidler on February 12, 2013

      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!!

    21. Creator Carrie L Rutherford on February 12, 2013

      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.

    22. Creator Briana Farrell on February 11, 2013

      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!

    23. Creator Roxanne on February 11, 2013

      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!!

    28. Creator Roxanne on January 27, 2013

    34. Creator Spandy Andy Rimer on December 11, 2012

    35. Creator Irene LP on December 10, 2012

      Hi! I answered the survey, but I didn't see a place to enter my size preferences. Did I miss that? Excited! :)

    36. Creator Karen Hammond on December 9, 2012

      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 :-)

    37. Creator Christopher Gargani on December 9, 2012

      Preeeeeetty sure they'll send out a survey soon.

      Yep, check the questions at the bottom of the main page.

    38. Creator David Eidler on December 8, 2012

      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!
      David Eidler

    39. Creator jack on December 8, 2012

      I'm sorry but i have to cancel my pledge for now. But i will by one from the site once it's up.

    40. Creator Benjamin Bangsberg on December 8, 2012

      ..... 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

    41. Creator Legion of the Cow LTD on December 8, 2012

      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!

    42. Creator Margot Atwell on December 7, 2012

      This is fantastic. I'm so glad to see that the project funded! Can't wait to get my cape.

    43. Creator geumtian on December 6, 2012

      is the teal and orange one available? other than that, just backed! hope all goes well

    44. Creator Jamie on December 6, 2012

      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.

    45. Creator Gatt on December 6, 2012

      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!

    46. Creator Ed Williams on December 6, 2012

      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.

    47. Creator Lizard Hunter on December 6, 2012

      Great idea and project! Is it weird that I am 21 and just bought one for myself? I think not! :D
