lighted capes and cloaks

If you're going to make a bold fashion statement with a cape, why not really go for it, and make it a light-up cape or cloak?

Here at Enlighted, we've produced lighted capes and cloaks for a variety of clients, including several super heroes (with apologies to our personal hero, Edna Mode).

royal cape with faux leopard trim

Royalty ... but where? We don't know. But with red velvet, mock leopard fur, pink EL wire, and rainbow-colored LEDs, it must be a special place.

lighted golden cloak

This piece was created for a stage production where a blanket with magical properties was worn as a cloak. The performer could adjust the brightness of the glow with a sliding switch.

Warm-white LEDs (with a yellow tint) were selected to simulate the color of candle light.

musclemania cape

This shiny black cape combines superbright blue, green and white lights, with a high energy random style of animation, similar to tv "static". The cape was worn with matching lighted posing trunks.

Joe Williams has worn this cape (and matching light-up hat) in competition, taking 3rd place in Musclemania Capitol on June 7, 2003, and 2nd place in Musclemania Superbody on June 21, 2003. Congratulations, Joe!

timex/walmart cape

This cape was commissioned for use in a sales meeting between Timex Indiglo and one of their major retailers, WalMart. The speaker wanted to make a grand entrance, and use an Elvis-style costume to promote the Indiglo brand. Do you think we succeeded in getting him noticed?

The text on the back, "Timex - Indiglo - WalMart" was created in appropriate fonts with flat-panel EL. The design was completed with an EL outline similar to the face of a watch. Additional lights on the collar help to draw attention to the face of the person wearing the cape.


how to order

Capes and other superhero accessories are available on a made-to-order basis. We can design the entire garment to your specifications, or we can add lights to a cape that you already have, if you prefer. Please see our custom orders page for more information.
