“Elements” Cape - Feminine
Limited Edition Apocalypse Gear
The last few weeks at ArmStreet have been little bit different: instead of designing beautiful new medieval dresses and armor, we’ve been rapidly prototyping designs that will support medical staff. Our design process has been accelerated for the sake of necessity, and we have been working around the clock to design face-shields and other protective gear to donate to our local hospitals. It’s strange to think about - after years of designing protective equipment and helmets to keep people safe in medieval battles, we’re now producing items for a very different kind of war.
Despite this, we can’t forget about our customers! Our “Elements” Cape is a way of offering you something relatively cheap, stylish, and protective for you to wear in these trying times. We imagine it as something you can throw on over your clothes when you’re doing essential supply runs and put directly into the laundry when you get home. It’s probably one of the most affordable items we’ve ever made, and it is the fastest item to go from design to production in the history of our company. Once we make it through this pandemic, it is still stylish enough to be a great raincoat for medieval events (I’m looking at you, Pennsic), or just something cool to wear over your modern fashion. We also think of it as a piece of memorabilia - it’s incredibly unlikely that we’ll ever manufacture anything quite like this ever again!
It is made from a modern, water-resistant synthetic fabric. Our cape is a loose-fitting, enclosed rectangular garment. It drapes over the shoulders and doesn’t have sleeves - instead, you’ll find slits for your hands with cuffs and velcro on the end to help you get a good fit. This design opens at the neck via velcro to let your head through, and should be put on like a sweater - it contains no zipper or buttons at the front. The velcro at the neck has two options: loose and tight-fitting. There’s a wide, voluminous pocket at the front that closes with a flap and velcro.
This version of our “Elements” Cape has been influenced by some of the feminine medieval clothing we’ve produced in the past. If you’re looking for something more masculine, we have another version available. The feminine version has a hood that is reminiscent of our “Autumn Princess” Chaperon design, which fastens up the middle with velcro. There is a drawstring to keep the hood securely on your head, and the front of the hood can either be left forward to give more protection or turned back for more visibility. The cuffs of the garment are 5cm (1 ³¹/₃₂'') wide.
At ArmStreet, we are familiar with the struggle of current events - as a company, we’ve already lived through a major recession as well as a war, both of these having a great effect on our manufacturing and how we do business. Through the pandemic, we intend to continue working, helping those around us, and giving back to our customers and communities in any way we can. Because of this, we’ve worked to make this item as cheap and as functional as we can. Purchasing this cape will help keep you safe, give us more resources to help our local medical facilities, and also play a part in keeping us in business and giving our staff projects to work on. We’re determined to keep everyone on our team safe and employed, and to continue to support their families as much as possible.
We hope that everyone out there keeps fighting the good fight, staying healthy and taking care of each other. And truly - thank you to essential workers and medical staff for keeping our world running and our families safe. You are the true heroes in this situation and don’t forget that.
