The only wearables with the power to turn ordinary human beings into courageous superheroes.
Anyone who has donned a cape knows about the unexplainable powers it bestows on the wearer. Great feelings of safety, confidence, heroism and fun get rolled into an extraordinary sensation – making the cape a unique tool for prospect, employee and client empowerment. Turning ordinary human beings and workers into superheroes was never easier.
From simple shawl to fantastical greatness
The cape, a sleeveless jacket of sorts, began as a practical piece of outer wear thousands of years ago. While these flowing back-warmers have evolved over time to keep up with fashion trends, an interesting cape development occurred in the field of fantasy. With further advances in cape-technics and the human imagination, this once unassuming simple piece of cloth was transformed into captivating and powerful hero accessories, fantastical protective shields, or magical (and sometimes invisible) tools for magic. From Little Red Riding Hood, to Super Man, to Harry Potter, many legendary characters have come to regard the cape as a delightfully fun source of power and protection, or at the very least, a fabulous fashion accessory.
Designed so that caped recipients become caped crusaders
Original cape designs are invented, prototyped and manufactured to order, tailored to your needs. Let us know your design ideas and together explore different options that suit your recipients, the event and budget.
It’s all in the flow
It’s normal for worldly beings to lose their bounce, groove and esteem on occasion. The cape’s recharging powers provide an instant pick-up, giving the wearer the ability to behave courageously, take calculated chances, consider new possibilities, and ultimately succeed against adversity. Plus, they’re great for running around the office in! But one must ask – is it the cape’s powers at work, or is it the wearer’s confidence that provokes these extraordinary actions? Placebo or not, the effect is undeniable… capes empower and boost confidence like no other wearable.
The sizes of your lifesize capes are customizable to your needs and your audience. For superhero style capes, we recommend designs that extend below the knees. A common cape length for adult men is 4 to 5 feet and a nice size for women is just over 3 to 4 feet. Let us know if you’re creating the capes for kids or if your order is meant to accessorize dolls and other toys.
Satin, silk, wool, and velvet are commonly used to form the tangible aspect of the cape. (Mystical powers added by you!) We recommend silk and polyester blends that are wrinkle resistant, light weight, and freight-friendly. Let us know which colors are important to you, and any additional trims, liners, embroidery, printing, pockets, or tagging you have in mind. Depending on your project, we may also recommend original clasps and closures to provide a canvas for emblems and logos while adding value to the garment.
Your custom capes can be folded and enclosed in transparent, printed polybag packaging. Bulk packaging is also available, as is gift packaging in boxes or gift wrapped. To help your capes be easily stored and displayed between uses, we can also design custom hooks and hangers to match the program. Please review common <packaging styles> for capes and other items, and Contact us for more options.
It takes between 2 to 4 months to design, prototype, produce and deliver your order. Time varies mainly based on the type of cape pattern, fabric, and type of clasp (simple button vs. metal interlocking clasp). Contact us and let us know your ideal date for delivery.
