That's it. There are LOTS of kids sized capes and masks.

This is a great idea! It's cheap and easy! I'll definately be making a few.

I was doing a search for capes and came upon this site:

You can buy a cape and give to charity at the same time! They might want to have a nice partnership with the coordination efforts.
They make adult sizes as well it seems.

Ooo they also have masks: http://www.littleherocapes.com/catalog/Little_Hero_Masks-6-1.html

They're lovely capes, but $45 for a child's cape may be a little on the pricey side when you're sending that cape off to NCSoft.

Does anyone have a good screenshot of Statesman? I have just about everything I need for a Statesman mask, but I can't find a good enough image to get the details.
I wouldn't use the word "replace," but there's no word for "take over for you and make everything better almost immediately," so we just say "replace."

How's this?
Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

How's this?

That's perfect!  Thank you.

I couldn't tell if it was a ridge across the eyebrows and around, or if it was actually another piece scalloped on.  I used to be pretty good with fiberglass and body putty, back in the day.  As soon as I can get my hands on a styrofoam head, I'll get busy.  :)
(That's not a call for a styrofoam head; my aunt has one either in her attic or my grandparents'.)

Small reminder - I am still taking orders for the Cape and Mask Initiative through my Etsy shop. The link for the capes is here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/109238903/childs-satin-cape-to-help-savecoh

I will stress that this is the price of the fabric - I'm donating my time to make them. I'd make them free, but I don't have the money to buy that much fabric. I DO take overseas orders happily! (I'm not that great at making masks out of anything but leather, and...that's more pricey.) I'll be taking orders until the listing expires or the server goes dark, whichever happens last.

I've gone mine sent (well, I ordered from Sith!).

Much easier than trying to post from the UK. (The registered letters cost a months sub!)

After some looking, I finally found this at a store here in town. Then, I found it online. It costs about what SithRose's offer does, but won't consume anyone's free time.

It's not THAT much time. :) *grins* And it's not wasting my time - It's still sales for my Etsy shop, even when I'm not making any money off them. ;) (I freely admit that there is a *tiny* ulterior motive there. But it is the most secure way of making sure that everyone who asks me to make a cape for them gets their cape shipped out!)

My kids and I are going to have a craft day and make a bunch of masks.

Do you think it's better to send them in individual envelopes or put them all in one envelope?

There are benefits to either.  I'm sending mine all in one, figuring the overall response will make thick envelopes/packages that much more impressive than more envelopes.

So, my cape will be on its way shortly - maybe it is another little drop that will help tipping the scales.
Well, it is not a perfect metaphor ...
