"Close enough" Dark Knight movie Cape (Options?)




Hi friends,

I have a quick question :huh about the cape in the Dark Knight. I'd like to get a budget version of the cape. It doesn't have to be exactly screen accurate. Just what I like to call a "Close Enough" version.

Any recommendations?

Thanks brothers and sisters!

HAPPY 4th of July! :) HAPPY THURSDAY! emoticon

Okay, Black Velveteen, in a cloak from eBay. Ok. Gotcha. I will do some searching and see what I can find.

I'm trying to do a close enough Dark Knight costume. I'm ordering the gloves and jacket from UD but I'm not sure how I'm going to customize the pants just yet........

Thank you for the advice!

I'd order the pants too if you're spending that much!

The pants on the UD suit are amazing. They feel like you are wearing jeans just about! For a cape I have used Fan Universe Creations who have their own website, or are on Facebook and eBay as well.

Make your own cape. I sewed mine out of Moleskin suede that I picked up at Joanns Fabrics for about 30 bucks. It looks and wears amazingly well!
