Ever since I saw Anjelica Huston as Morticia in the movie "The Addams Family" (1991) wearing a long, black velvet cape, I have had a secret desire to own this item of apparel myself. It may not be especially practical, but a woman in a cape looks so mysterious yet elegant:

Of course long capes are available everywhere right now as Halloween costumes, but should I ever decide to succumb, I would prefer to purchase something a bit more durable and of better quality. Such a cape is available from the Pyramid Collection:
The all black full length version costs about $100. For $20 more, you can also get the cape in green or purple velvet, or a reversible design in either black/red or black/purple. As far as I am concerned, though, only the all black cape will do. After all, isn't that what every well-dressed hero (and villain) wears?

Whether your mood is naughty or nice, a long, black velvet cape will always be the perfect fashion statement!
