Wish List Wednesdays: Black Velvet Cape


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?

Batman (from Beyond Hollywood)
Darth Vader (from Star Wars)

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