Episode 13: Into the Earth! Carlsbad Caverns, NM

Posted on May 20, 2013 by Amazing Capes

In the late 1800’s it was known to the locals in the region of southeast New Mexico as ‘Bat Cave’… a gaping hole in the earth where dusk would push thousands of Mexican Free-Tailed bats through its mouth and into the night sky. 16 yr old Jim White was the first known person to truly explore the caverns. “... any hole in the ground which could house such a gigantic army of bats must be a whale of a big cave.” With a handmade kerosene lantern and clearly no sense of Nyctophobia White discovered another world through miles of darkness. One of the most decorated caves in the world, the caverns are now illuminated to reveal the wild and ancient forms that calcium carbonate can take… thousands of slender stalactites dripping from the ceiling, chandeliers, Michelangelo columns having reached each other in the beyond, flowstone reflecting whale mouths... Carlsbad is wild, intrepid and amazing.

Prepared to enter this middle earth… oh land of Gondor… this extraterrestrial world… we came geared up with a new cape prototype! When Amazing Capes was in LA we ventured to the fashion district for several yards of fabric that was then sewn together by the talented skills of Ms. Gloria in Echo Park. The new cloak feels magical just holding it… what a feeling it was to put it on 750 feet below the earth! It's as if instantly one assumes the leading role of a great adventure, of a quest that needs undertaking.

After hiking for miles through several hours of illuminated darkness we took an elevator back to the ceiling of the earth 750’ above. “So trippy!” – said Anna and Rox at the same time.

Episode 10: Stolen Surprises in the Land of San Francisco

Posted on May 02, 2013 by Amazing Capes

Dear the city of Saint Francis, perhaps a bit of your holiness has fled these fog bleached row houses, late night eateries and crusty fire escapes? In the likeness of the novel On the Road where Dean drops Marylou and Sal on the streets of San Francisco, Anna and Rox were also left without wheels when sun warrior Wanda was abducted on Saturday night. Stolen! Straight up thievery! Oh woe it’s true. The girl was hot wired, lifted, purloined by stranger’s hands in the dark night… But what is a journey without a twist of events… a bit of adventure? 

So?! Rox and Anna put on their Amazing Capes and emblazoned the Mission District in the dead of night on a hunt for Wanda’s captors; we raced motorcycles across the city, leaped tall buildings and stealthily followed the clues of her disappearance until hands were tied and justice was served. But alas… That is not how the story goes! For our suitcase chock full of powerful capes was lifted with Wanda! Poof! Our backs were bare. It was Superman stranded as Clark Kent. Batman without his Batmobile. Wonder Woman left grounded in a storm.

Meanwhile, the hired guns of the city took up the hunt, which brings forth a good moment to illuminate the positive qualities bestowed on this land in honor of Saint Francis. On the afternoon prior to the disappearance of our Amazing Capes, we trooped out to Land’s End to catch the first winds to hit the earth from their Pacific journey. The Heroes: Alexa (a magical Reiki healer), Seth (saving the world through solar energy), and Rox (superhero facilitator) got a blast of fresh energy at the mouth of the Golden Gates as we felt the air charter past our fingertips and billow our capes in the wind. What a beautiful place!

There’s a whole lot of magical goodness in this city—super kind people, amazing food, totally bomb bubble tea, terrific parks, a current of happening energy, amazing views, and a sense of resilience to keep it all moving forward. 

As we let the universe do its work, the positive energy forces of Wanda brought her back to the light! 4 days later, in the vacuum of night, Anna’s phone rang with the recovery of the 78’ Toyota Corolla.  Just 10 blocks away, Wanda was marooned by an ocean of crack perfume. A hot mess! But as always, Onwards and Upwards my friends.

AC Truth 10: Having an Amazing Cape makes for good karma and stealing is just wrong.







Scene of the crime... The blue truck is parked where Wanda was!


Gorgeous Delores Park... totally bumpin with rad humans!

AC Episode 2: Graceland

Posted on April 09, 2013 by Amazing Capes

 Episode 2: Graceland, Home of the King. A few miles from downtown Memphis the home of Elvis remains in full audio tour glory, a time capsule of one man who brought the heat to post war America and died with the lust of a nation. Amazing Capes embraced the opportunity to stand in Elvis Presley’s living room and soak in the inspiration of his double stained glass peacocks. To walk beyond the white carpet and into his jungle room, plush with deep green shag carpet, a ceiling of astroturf and the energy of the only king America has ever honored. The TV room of yellow leather, a triple Nixon line up, and a yellow lightning bolt with the letters TCB shocked Ruby’s Magellan cape with its electric motto: Taking Care of Business… in a flash. In his 42 years before heart failure zapped his physical body, he imagined and became a body of art with an impossibility of death- and that my friends, is Taking Care of Business.

AC Truth 2: To make an experience more awesome, turn up the volume of the King and ride the golden wave.

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.
