Yes, Capes

The boy is going to an Anime convention and he asked me to make him a red cape to go with his armor that he's been making. Being an obliging sort of mother that does that kind of thing, I hauled out my old sewing machine and snipped and stitched. In no time at all I had a red satin cape.

Pretty snazzy, don't you think? I'm half tempted to wear it to the grocery store tomorrow or down at the mall. I would stand with my hands on my hips and let folks admire my profile,

Wouldn't it be cool if everyone had capes to wear on days when you really needed super powers? Feeling bored? Wear a cape. Lethargic? Wear a cape. Need to take on the world? Cape.

Just a thought.

Keep using your superpowers for good,

  1. My boys love capes! ME TOO! interestingly even more than my girls...they wanted princess gowns

  2. I made a sun cape for my grown up daughter to wear with a costume--making it was very satisfying, and like you, I tried it on and wasn't really anxious to take it off. Glitter gold costume satin. (Jenn in Albuquerque)

  3. I once bought a tiara at a yard sale. The lady selling it said she had occasionally worn it to clean house, and that cleaning in a tiara was a completely different experience from just cleaning. Naturally I had to try it, and she was right...and I'm betting a cape would work too. I'll keep an eye out for the superlady in the cape getting groceries!

  4. BEST MOM EVER! I so enjoyed reading this...thanks for the smiles just reading that you'd like to wear it to the Mall or Grocery are my kinda girl!!! Rock on!!! Hope your Son enjoys it. YEAY!!!

  5. I would love to put on a red cape right now!!! I need some superpowers.... I was the type of mom who made capes too, and costumes....
