From The Universe, We Bring To You... Dog Capes!

Posted on January 21, 2015 by Amazing Capes

The latest formation of stardust is particularly exciting. Shiny bits of matter and magic have come together to cape the backs of our best friends here on earth. Capes for dogs are here! And the time is now. Emblazon your favorite furry friend with his very own Amazing Cape. Available in 2 sizes and 2 styles they fit dogs approx 10-55 pounds. 10% of proceeds benefit The Asheville Humane Society... the great organization that our 12 pound mascot & muse Finn came from! 

The capes feature 3 ways to fasten. 1st- pull the elastic band over your pup's head and down around its belly, 2nd- tie around the neck, and 3rd- snap the tabs over your pup's collar... 3-2-1 and your pup is ready to fly!

In the photos below Finn goes exploring with his fellow rescue friend Texas in Eaton Canyon, CA, and surveys the sewing operations with his new friend Brianna in downtown Los Angeles. Send us your photos of dogs in capes! Or hashtag on instagram #amazingcapes #dogcapes

The Houdini Amazing Cape that benefits Arts for Life in Asheville stole the show as our most popular cape for the weekend- it must have been all the magic in the air!

Cherokee Nation Makes History: Reaches the Edge of Space!

Posted on March 28, 2013 by Amazing Capes

On March 8th 2013 students of Cherokee High School in North Carolina reached new heights that reflected the strength and sovereignty of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. As far as we know, this was the first day Native Americans have ever reached the edge of space by means of launching a massive weather balloon. The balloon was attached with a special box, parachute and Go Pro cameras that rose up up and away and captured footage from the air. 

When Amazing Capes was asked to sponsor the 5 High School students who were chosen as “Cherokee Space Ambassadors" we were totally on board! Meet Gabby Thompson, Tagan Crowe, Bradley Welch, Cecilia Magana and Ryanne Oocumma- all students of Nicole Jackson’s 11th/12th grade advanced biology class with unique roles in the launch.  To reflect their school colors, the Space Ambassadors were given red Super Mandela capes prior to the launch. They calculated distances & estimated projections, readied gear and held down the corner ropes keeping the balloon steady until lift off. 

The entire school came out on the lawn and spelled their letters on the playing field- in this video link you can see dizzying footage of the ground as the balloon rises up! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8x1Ww2y1nRY 

After the weather balloon popped at the top of the stratosphere, the go pro cameras and box (that included Gabby's tribal earrings...now having reached space!) were picked up on the border of South Carolina a couple hundred miles away... at the top of a tree. The tracking team managed to climb it and footage was retrieved.

The tribe partnered with Element Advertising, featuring Art Director Christopher Sams of Asheville, to take another step forward in history & in doing so, reflect the strength of the Cherokee community, their pride in education and the new heights the nation is reaching. We are so thankful to have been able to participate in this event. Onwards and Upwards!
