Loved loved LOVED our personalized cape!!!! My son is into a new obscure cartoon. Capes are no longer sold ANYWHERE on the Internet. My husband and I were desperate to make his birthday dreams come true. One Etsy seller turned me down and these sellers went above and beyond my expectations!!! It was much better than i thought it would be. They were so sweet and answered all of my many questions. They also paid close attention to details. You can't go wrong with them!! You can stop searching for the perfect gift for your little superhero! Can't wait to order from them again!

A Mom and Pop Shop

Brian and I (Alyssa) have been married since 2002. In the first few years of our marriage we tried to do all kinds of things together. We tried running, cooking, hiking, white water rafting, photography, swimming, board games, all manner of things we could do together. However, most of those things ended with me being bruised (i will never be the athlete in the family). The two of us are so different we couldn't ever find anything we enjoyed doing together until Pip and Bean.

While Brian was in Grad school getting his PhD in 2009 Pip and Bean was born out of necessity. Our daughters had a birthday party to go to and we had no money to get the kid a gift. I decided I was going to make their little friend a Superhero cape. At the time I didn't even know how to thread a machine but I could draw and I was desperate. It took me forever to make that first cape and it involved a lot of cursing at the machine and fabric but, it was a hit with the birthday boy and all his friends. After the party I got requests to make more for our other friend's kids and before we knew it I had to learn how to get good with that sewing machine. Then Brian encouraged me to open a shop with the promise that he would help with all the "numbers". It didn't take us long to realize that the one thing we could do well together was run a small business. The ways we were different were what made us a strong team. He is a number cruncher and I am the creative flare that makes this little shop work.

That was thousands of capes ago.
I can make the heck out of a cape now, but don't ask for curtains unless you want them to look like superman hung his cape over your windows.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

YES we can do color combinations that are not pictured in the shop!

However, they do take longer then the 3-7 business days that our "on stock" color combinations take.

We only accept custom color orders January-August. We focus all our attention in the fall on getting out Holiday orders using capes that we have on the shelf and ready to go out.

All our emblem capes are personalized! We have options in just a letter, a full name, nickname or monogram.

Care instructions

For the longest life of your cape we suggest hand washing in cold water with a mild detergent and then allowing the cape to hang dry. If you have a really bad super hero spill contact us and we are happy to help walk you through ways to clean the stain off your cape.

Gift wrapping and packaging

We DO offer gift wrapping or a gift message in with your cape! Leave a note in the section of check out marked "notes to pip and bean" about what you would like your note to say and we are happy to add that for you!

Neck Closure

All our capes have a velcro closure for a safe easy release!

Superhero sizing

Our Standard size cape that we carry on stock and ready to go at all times is 26 inches long. This is a great size to grow with your little one! It starts off long (mid calf length) on a three year old but will fit your child till they are 8-10 years old (waist length)!

Additional Sizes

We also carry a shorter version at 23 inches which is a great length for a toddler.

Our smallest size is our 18inch infant cape. This is a great cape for a "babies first cape" Hospital photo!

And if you are an adult that wants in on the fun we also carry adult Large and Medium capes!

**Please note that the production time on all capes that are not our "standard size" is different then the 3-7 business days. Feel free to convo us for current turn around times on these sizes.

Where is my package?

Your order of a standard on stock cape will go out in 3-7 business days. If you have purchased in our peak time Sept-December the time could be closer to the maximum of the 7 days.

When your cape ships you will get an email from us to the email address you provided on your order with a USPS tracking number.

You can use that tracking number on the USPS website tracking to watch your cape along the way.

If you have any concerns or questions at all about your order feel free to contact us.

Can You ship my order to a different address

We ship to the address that you put into Etsy when purchasing. However, if you let us know right away that this is the incorrect address we will do our best to change it for you if the package has not shipped yet. During peek time Sept-Dec this can cause your package to be delayed so if you need to change your address after your purchase is made please be aware it can effect your turn around time.

If you would like your order shipped directly to the recipient of the cape (and they do not live in your household) you can put their address into etsy check out so we have it- just make sure to leave a note on the order so we know it is a gift and can leave out all purchasing info.

Feel free to contact us anytime about shipping questions!

How do I find what I am looking for quickly

Need something quick- search by color! There is a search box on the upper right side of the shop that you can type the color of cape you are looking for into and all the options we have in that color in all our designs will pop up!

Another, helpful search tool is our "sections" on the left side of the shop.
