Get Freaked!

Posted on August 31, 2013 by Amazing Capes

"Are you a superhero? Irrelevant question. Of course you're a superhero. Do you want to form a superhero alliance? ALSO IRRELEVANT. We're forming a super hero alliance to fight against the evils of bottle sweat. Now the only question that remains is how flashy will our flash be?" - Freakerteam

We were terrifically stoked to join forces with the folks at Freaker USA for a giveaway. Several pairs of this dynamic duo are now out there in the world & though the contest is over, it's never too late to combine the two into a super task force. If you haven't yet heard of Freaker USA then do yourself a life-long favor and check them out! Dynamic knit coozies forever. You can also put em' on your arms for some sweet sleeves when paired with a cape. Rox met them in Wilmington, NC a couple years back while they were pursuing a successful kickstarter campaign and was immediately wooed by their heartfelt freaky pazzazzz. We invite you to be as well.

Cloud Gate 'the Bean' - definitely a spaceship, in the incredible Chicago Art Institute, & Agora- a sculptural installation of large headless bodies in Grant Park.

Let's Be Amazing: charity: water

Posted on June 25, 2013 by Amazing Capes


Our world is in the middle of a water crisis. There are 800 million people in the world lack who clean water and diarrheal disease caused by unsafe water is the second leading KILLER OF CHILDREN WORLDWIDE. This is a preventable tragedy. The scope of this crises is so vast it's often easier to ignore than absorb, comprehend and figure out how to make a REAL difference. Fortunately we are a world full of SUPERHEROES, and we can help.

Amazing Capes has chosen to match our Magellan cape to benefit charity: water. This organization is making a REAL IMPACT. They are connected with a full rallying force of compassionate & ambitious heroes who are enacting incredible efforts for change. We can also feel good about every dollar given, as 100% of all public donations go directly to water programs while charity: water receives private funding to cover their operating costs. 

Amazing Capes has set up our own campaign goal of $1,200 through charity: water. Now is a great time to purchase this hopeful cape that reflects the colors of a jerry can of clean water. $2 from every Magellan cape sold goes directly towards aiding the water crises. Wear this cape and proudly show your support. If you're able to give more, please do! Donate directly to our campaign here: Let's Be Amazing - afterwards, you will be able to see the impact of every dollar through GPS coordinates and photos when our clean water project in Rwanda is complete.

Water is so essential to life that it doesn't matter where it comes from here in Rwanda... but it does. 5,000 children die every day across the world from water-related illnesses. 


Boo-yah!! This village in Rwanda just got a well. The future just got brighter!
