It's possible, Willyto, that ELC made some capeskin versions as either custom orders or on an experimental basis, but I do not know this. Gary made me both goatskin and horsehide versions in brown when neither the hides nor colors were available in the late '90's, so capeskin versions could have been produced from 2007, though I am ignorant of this. Thank you very much, Willyto, for your flattering words. It's all smoke and mirrors, though!!! Ha! If I can muster any objectivity on this subject, though, I have to agree that these photo shoots seem to turn out pretty well; even my other half just said she approves, so who am I to disagree??? Doing these shoots also restrains me from indulging in the eating excesses of the holidays - just celery sticks and water for me in the cooler! ;-) Thank you!
