Top Ten Capes for Halloween Costumes

Halloween always sneaks up on you, doesn’t it? It seems like they don’t put the candy and costumes out on store shelves until a week before the big day. It’s sort of a neglected holiday compared to Christmas which they pretty much advertise starting every December 26th, and we often wind up scrambling to get a costume together in time.

If you want to get your costume out of the way early this year, here are the top ten capes that you can use to create a great Halloween costume:

Kids love Batman. This cool, scalloped cape with a yellow bat insignia on the back is the perfect thing for your little caped crusader. For some reason, it’s hard to find superhero capes with the scalloped edge even if you’d think that’d be one of the more common Halloween cape patterns, making it very difficult to pull off a perfect Batman costume, but this one nails it.

For your little hero, this red cape weighs in at 24 inches, so your kid won’t trip on it while he or she is saving the day.

No frills, no bells and whistles, this is just a bare bones adult length black cape. A simple tie-around-the-neck deal that’s perfect for any adult Batman, Darth Vader, Dracula, wizard, warlock or warrior. No hood, no collar, just a simple black cape to cap off your outfit. Why include such a plain cape on a list of the ten best on Amazon? Simply put: sometimes you don’t need all that fancy stuff. Sometimes, simplicity works best.
