Update #12

News from the land of...

Okay, I figured it was time to break it to you. Ladies and Gents, I put all the Kickstarter $$ on a down payment for this: I hope you understand that I really had no other choice.

However... 

Once I discovered that the sQuba can only go 3mph underwater I quickly sold it to a millionaire, finished my last mai-tai in Mexico and hopped a Greyhound back to my apt in Asheville, NC. And ever since...with the exception of instagramming my cat, the occasional Mad Men episode and overly sunny winter days, I have been working diligently to get this first production of Reversible Satin Amazing Capes ready to ship out to all of you!! I have also been drawing spirit animals, bathing power stones, gathering photos, going sticker-crazy, designing this that and those, checking out spaces (Amazing Capes International Headquarters is still very close to my bedroom), making labels and getting ULINE deliveries full of recycled cardboard and stacks of shiny-ness. 

I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for your amazing patience. I want SO MUCH to get the capes shipped out before the end of January and will be trying my hardest to do so. The first run of production should be finished THIS WEEK. There were just a few more capes than expected :)  Thank you all again for backing this project, bearing with me and showing all your support! 

So much love!

Roxanne

PS. If anyone does have a change of address, please send me a message with the new one! 

PSS. I'd love for you to join us on facebook if you haven't already :) 

PSSS. New goal in life is creating a Submersible Water Powered Jet-Pack Amazing Cape..

      Tony, no worries! This kitty is just hangin out with cape samples. Laurali is right, I'm having the capes produced elsewhere, cat-dander free. The washing drying instructions are to 1. fasten velcro 2. wash cold 3. tumble dry low
      thx!

      I'm glad to see your cat has things under control!

      I'm with Tony though, and have pet dander allergies (which I'm currently getting allergy shots for). I'm assuming while the capes are being produced elsewhere, you will be packing them with your cat supervising....

      Nice car. Hey, what are the washing/dry-cleaning instructions for the capes? We have serious cat allergies here (we love cats, we really do, they just make us sneeze and itch and stop breathing).
      Thanks,
      --Tony

    Yippee!! You'll get 5 capes in your choice of size & color choice. AND..! I will create a 16" x 20" framed painting based upon a photograph that you have taken (or have permission for me to use). One suggestion is taking a picture of your family or friend group all donning your new capes and then sending it to me for a truly one-of-a-kind piece of art {will have abstract tendencies}! Signed with love from Rox.
