The Scarlet Pimpernel

I went through a cape phase a few years ago before moving on to more practical outwear choices. Although I know they are impractical (your arms get cold, there's almost no type of purse you can carry without looking awkward) I'm having a cape moment again. I just like the look so much. It's dramatic and makes you feel like a fashion-y superhero. After all the first written hero with a secret identity started as a mere fop before he became an expert swordsmen (The Scarlet Pimpernel by Emma Orczy). So fashion and being a superhero go completely hand-in-hand. First step: cape. Second step: master some heroic skill or fall into a tub of toxic waste and come out awesome...
