Friend and bandmate Nix spotted this cape when she was out opshopping a while back, and ummed and ahhed about whether or not I would like it.
She wasn't sure enough to buy it, but told me about it, and I went to check it out.
I wasn't sure about it either!
The shade of green seemed a bit dull and murky for my liking, and the deep brown trim and buttons weren't quite my cup of tea.
So I put it back, and walked around for a bit, and found I couldn't leave it behind!
It's pure wool, it's snuggly and beautifully shaped, and it's growing on me.
Not unlike some sort of mouldy infestation.
Besides, capes make me feel fabularsehole and superheroiney!!
Yesterday I deemed it ideal to wear to see the new Tim Burton film, "Dark Shadows"
Ah, the costuming!! Exquisite!
The sets were splendid!
We rather enjoyed it.
