My Obsession With Capes

When I was young I loved capes.   I don’t know why.   The first cape I can remember (I’m sure there were predecessors) was one I had at my grandmother’s house.   It was dark blue with red trim.  I did the normal pretend I was Batman or Superman routines, but I just like wearing it.  I don’t know why.

Following that for years I had inferior capes, normally the halloween vinyl capes.  I hated those capes.  They would tear within an hour and most the time you were left with the collar and no cape.    Then I finally made it to working at the haunted school house (picture above though the cape is somehow behind my back enoguh you can’t see it).   I designed a character named “Vlad”  who I played off an on for 3 years – note the costume all put together probably ran me 400.00.

Since I stopped working at the school house I’ve only pulled out that cape on a couple occasions.   I still have it and it’s in the closet.   Maybe sometimes I dance around naked only wrapped in my cape…..wouldn’t you like to know.

  1. Capes are hot… they were always my favorite part of my Halloween coustume! I had this red velvety one that I just adored.
