Wrapping Up!

Posted on February 05, 2013 by Amazing Capes

For all of you who may have pre-ordered a cape with The Kickstarter Deal, we want you to know that they will be flying your way soon... if they aren't already! So keep sitting pretty, and soon enough a bundle of satin should fall from the sky straight into your lap. 

Oh and here's Rox with a truckload of capes! 


Much love from our super sonic speed headquarters here in Western North Carolina!

Rox's Story... Kickstarted 2012!

Posted on January 25, 2013 by Amazing Capes


Kickstarter success! Photo by the lovely Katy Luquire

Ever since I heard of Kickstarter, I knew I wanted to use this crowd funding platform to help me launch a project. However, with so many ideas in my head it was hard to pick just one. Since 2009 my brainstorming went from "A multimedia essay of Great American Love Stories", to "expressionist beach painting", to "motorcycle-venture-che-guevara-how-can-I-do-that-too?" and so on... I felt like with kickstarter, you're basically granted one 'get out jail free card' -simply because you don't really want to facebook/email blast all your hardworking friends and family for money more than once... That said, I kept waiting for the idea that would stick. 

And here we are :)  "Amazing Capes: Release Your Inner Superhero" was the project that I felt, if launched, would enable me to not only begin the manufacturing process of sweet capes, but would lead me closer towards creating 1. an inspiring job for myself in this well-educated and under-employed vacuum and 2. creating a positive impact in our world. Through the help of close friends, the incredibly generous support of 853 backers, and the grace of the kickstarter gods who chose to feature me in their national newsletter 'Projects We Love', we raised a grand total of $45,267 to start spreading the joy behind Amazing Capes to the world. I am thrilled and humbled at the success of this project; I feel as if I have just gotten off a long and dusty bus ride, excited to be at the very beginning of what I believe will be a great adventure. I do hope you'll stay with me (and bear with me) for all that awaits.

Amazing friends!

For you fellow idea-makers out there, you may find of interest a blog entry I wrote for Social Citizens: An Initiative of the Case Foundation, featuring 10 pieces of advice for launching a crowd-funded project. http://socialcitizens.org/blog-post/10-crowdfunding-lessons-success  As one who is constantly inspired by the creative & humanitarian energies of others, I hope everyone takes initiative to run away with your imagination! 

So- where is Amazing Capes at now? The inaugural run of Reversible Satin Amazing Capes has now finished production and is currently experiencing their first flight! As soon as they arrive on Wednesday, January 30th, we will begin tagging, wrapping and shipping all of the pre-orders with the help of my wonderful mom and fam. We are currently in the works of transforming our kitchen into an order-fulfillment center for a grand total of 1,088 capes to ship out from this heart-centered space.  :) Afterwards, I look forward to opening our online doors and making the remaining inventory available to anyone online anywhere.

853 is the number of times I want to say 'I Love You'- with an infinity symbol tacked on the end. Y'all know who you are.

Big hugs from the newly iced over land of Asheville, NC.

A Merry Merry Stocking Stuffer

Posted on November 29, 2012 by Amazing Capes

The holidays are upon us! I love this time of year... the crisp air, the twinkling glow of lights, the smell of fresh pine and cinnamon warming the oven... And soon enough Christmas morning will be here before we know it! And though I wrote Santa a hundred letters asking if the Reversible Satin Collection of Amazing Capes could be ready before then, he said I just have to give all the elves enough time to make them... and to sew them carefully with all the love and magic they can possibly store. So for those of you who would like to pass on a cape this Christmas, please become a backer on Kickstarter to pre-order your favorites in advance! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/20958070/amazing-capes-release-your-inner-superhero Below is a printable stocking stuffer to excite the time until the real package arrives beautifully bundled up in the mail this January. (With all my toes and fingers crossed the project reaches 100% funding!) 

Happy Holidays! 

Thankfully yours,

Roxanne

Think PINK!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month... so lets gather our resources and help push for a cure! Since our PINK Amazing Capes are still anxiously waiting for production- please donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation today or find a local walk or run to participate in within your community! You can make a donation in honor or memory of a loved one, and know that BCRF directs 91 cents of every dollar spent towards research and awareness programs. With an estimated 1.5 million cases of breast cancer in the world per year, every penny is a worthwhile investment towards finding a cure. Show your appreciation this October for all the strong women in our lives! 

Read President Obama's proclamation that shows his support towards women in this fight for a cure; he says, “we honor those we have lost, lend our strength to those who carry on the fight, and pledge to educate ourselves and our loved ones about this tragic disease.” Please follow his call for all citizens to join in activities that will increase awareness of what Americans can do to prevent breast cancer.
