Trick or Treat in Style this HALLOWEEN
Hey hey kiddos! Now is the time of year where anything goes. Literally. ANYTHING. Cover yourself in TP and roll around in fake blood? That's cool. Want to unleash your psycho spirit shadow animal on the streets? EMBRACE IT. Are those children dressed like bumblebees? Yes. Yes they are.
Halloween is coming and this year we've got your back like never before. Every Amazing Cape can help create an immediate costume that can transform every year to infinity and beyond.
Our Superhero Lair has come up with some smashing ideas...

Blaze Into Autumn
Meet Sarah Hopp & Lauren Silver in the Magellan Cape. Two bright & vivacious souls who are making a beautiful place out of their space on this earth. This season, blaze your own way.
Celebrating the independent small businesses in Asheville, NC we were pumped to join the Big Love festivities and empower more superheroes on the streets of downtown! It was awesome getting to meet all the genuine, rad & beautiful people who came by our booth. Such as this gem below- totally ready to take on Project Runway, she knew the Noble Rainbow was HER cape. As for the boys below in the Rowling capes, they'll make a smashing Gryffindor duo for Halloween.
"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.

Taking Flight in the Windy City
So pumped to see the beginning of Route 66 after flying along its cruisy sunbeat roads in the southwest this spring. Rox w/ a Carolina Blue Amazing Cape (& gold sample) took an inaugural dive into Chicago and was immediately impressed. Pics below feat. Cloud Gate 'the Bean' - definitely a spaceship, in the incredible Chicago Art Institute, & Agora- a sculptural installation of large headless bodies in Grant Park. Kudos on a great city all you Chicagoians!
Great Lakes for Amazing Capes
Soaring high as summer continues in Northern Michigan. Amazing Capes bring adventure to your standard awesome day. Feat Carol & Carl in The Wallenberg & The Houdini.
A Pop Up Success :)
What a treat it was to knight so many superheroes in person! We had a magical time in our 3 day pop-up store on the corner of downtown Asheville over Bele Chere weekend. And most of all we were able to support so many of the causes we <3 ! 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!
Check out all these beautiful heroes below:
A big thank you to Chris, Nathan and Ryan for all your help!

A Bele Chere Pop Up Store!
Woohoo! It's Bele Chere weekend in Asheville, NC and we want to see your beautiful faces! Come try on a cape in our 1st Ever Pop-Up store... And of course, $2 from every cape sold benefits an amazing cause.
There will be bubbles, floating satin, possibly some hand-made masks... and a superhero photo booth! We will be there for the majority of festival hours starting noon on Friday and will be posted up through Sunday afternoon.
Our google address is 4 Woodfin St. Asheville
We'd love to see you there!
Clean Water Rox!
We are pretty psyched to celebrate the month of July with our campaign for clean water. Everyone should have access to this basic need so they can have the time, energy and good health to focus on creating a safe, well-nourished & educated life for themselves and their family. Please show your support through the purchase of The Magellan cape or give what you can to our campaign here: Let's Be Amazing.
Rox here is turning 27 on Friday July 19th and would love nothing more than to help provide clean water to those without. 100% of all funds given to charity: water go directly to clean water projects. Once the project is complete, all donors will receive gps coordinates and images to see what they helped create! It only takes an average of $20 to give one person game-changing access to clean water- our goal is to help transform the water supply for 60 people by this September... if not sooner!
Thank you all in advance for your generous support!
