Episode 12: White Sands, New Mexico

Posted on May 16, 2013 by Amazing Capes


Enchanting lands in a sea of white

Stories told of UFO flights

Crystals ground to gypsum sun

Stretch for miles come undone

 

Day to night meet at their ends

Soaring saucers round the bends

The grounds of time fall between

The urge of our hands coming seen


Heavy breath to the ridge of dune

New views ahead open ever soon

A cape of stars catches the breeze

The pull from space behind our knees

 

A blanket slate of earthly new

Constantly shifting for the few

What beauty emits from this land

The sweeping gypsum of White Sands

Hero Packaging

Posted on March 27, 2013 by Amazing Capes

Here at Amazing Capes there are several things we love. We treasure hours lost in old family photo albums, finding multiple purposes for gold spray paint, drawing inspiration from Leslie Knope, the goodness of homemade birthday cakes, dueling in mossy forests, and racing the golden hour on bicycles. And right at the top, we love the feeling of giving and receiving magical bundles. 

Def: "magical bundle" n.: a carefully wrapped package that stirs up butterflies and causes one to feel a sudden rush of curiosity, excitement, nostalgia and profound possibility.  

Our desire to have every cape feel like a magical gift to you and yours is why each one automatically arrives bundled up. Every Amazing Cape is folded in gold tissue, wrapped in recycled brown paper, hand stamped, and tied in a bow with jute string and love. (We also slip in a super hero sticker.) ... As one mother told us, "It was as if she just got her letter to Hogwarts." ...and hearing that made us pretty happy :)  So, if you're waiting on your letter, or know someone who might be- Amazing Capes ships free and is a choose your own adventure in the making. It's time... Release your inner superhero.
