So my mother bless her heart found some renfair type cloak and cape patterns at her fabric store .... I have 3 tan and camo tents from wall Mart 1 man tube things with broken sticks or busted zippers. She has started to quilt them together and modify them to be hopefully rain and mosquito proof tent/ cloaks. I hope the final form is useable pics to follow.... So would y'all wear cape /Cloak in this day and age?

My brother does. He marches to the beat of his own drummer.

Do you, man.
Maybe consider getting a top hat and learning magic tricks? That would be a hell of a way to hitchhike.

All joking aside in having a hard time picturing what a cape/cloak made out of a Wal-Mart tent would look like. Even putting aside the quality of material that those tents are made out of I'm just not seeing it as a practical way to rain proof herself. Definitely gonna get some people checking you out for better or for worse.

I'm really excited it's three parts of the tents sewn in to the back of a cloak so one wall is the back of the Cloak the floor folds down from the shoulders and the sides come together with the zipper to make a teepee/ cone shape with the hood like a top vent . Pics soon to expand the idea.. yeah the materials are kinda bunk but the idea is multiple use less weight items.

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
