About PowerCapes
PowerCapes is a team of Moms, Dads, Customer Service Heroes, Web Ninjas and Passionate People who have dedicated their lives to helping kids be real super heroes.
Started by Holly Bartman as a way to provide children with personalized super hero capes, PowerCapes has become the #1 destination for authentic super hero wear for kids (and adults, too!)

I received a custom superhero cape for my girls to review. The first thing I noticed was how many options there are to make the cape your own. I made our cape purple with a raspberry sparkle heart and a purple S.
This is a combination of my girls' favorite colors. What does the S stand for you ask? Well, since my girls would be sharing one cape I told them it stood for "sisters". It has also been heard as standing for sharing and superhero.

Now before receiving our superhero cape, the girls were using a piece of fleece material and tying it around their necks. They were so excited when we received this in the mail. Now they were real superheros (in their minds anyway). They loved that this cape was made out of their favorite colors and boy did they love the sparkles on the heart. I love that it is so light weight and silky just as you would expect from a real superhero cape. The velcro used to fasten the cape around the neck is strong enough to not come undone during play and is much safer than a knot if caught up on something.

These capes come in 3 sizes: Sidekick (ages 2-7), Hero (ages 6-10) and Adult. They also sell extra accessories to make your superhero costume complete. These include blaster cuffs, masks and even a custom superhero t shirt. I am thinking blaster cuffs will make a great birthday gift for a certain little girl.

Wouldn't these make fantastic Halloween costumes? The whole family could be superheros!

Custom superhero capes take about 3 weeks to complete as each one is made by hand, one at a time, in the USA. If you need your cape in a hurry they sell ready made capes and have quite a selection of those.
Purchase one on their website or enter to win one right here.
