Re: my BEGINS Cape Pattern / What do you think?


looks great for what you're describing you want. I still think just a little more angle around the top of the cape. right now it looks like it's still a little short on fabric to wrap around the front and attach where the begins cape attaches. it is tough to get both the opened flight cape look using the same cape pattern. Good luck

Yeah I'm going to just add more material to the top. I was redoing the template at work, just didnt get around to finishing yet.

I spent a while working out a good cape pattern, the best one I came up with was basically a huge circle with a hole in the middle to go around your neck. It involves using triangular cut pieces of fabric then shaping off the edges. I've not made my cape yet due to a huge lack of money :(

You're right, don't emulate the capes from the other Bat films. And you don't want a circle for around the neck. Should be more of a triangle to emulate the shape of the back of the cowl.

In the movies they use several different capes so what looks great in the extended cape or flight scenes doesn't work as well as a "walking cape". You just have to pick what you like and roll with it. I love mine.

Oh of course i realize that. What im trying to do is pull off the two as equal as possilbe, and its going to be possible. I can still make my cape walking length, which is why i scaled down the spread wing look. And most think that the cape is as wide as the stairwell drop shot, but when you look at him gliding, the cape isnt as big. Its more in scale with how i drew mine out.

I realized too if i try to do the cape covering the face (dracula style) pose, it would leave my feet expose. But as long as i cover it with the other side of my cape i wont have a problem. Ive worked the details out now. Its just figuring out the measurements to true scale now. I drew it at work again and tried to get a sense of scale. Cant wait to start it this week.


My next step is working on the attachment to the suit.

Who here has done the velcro stunt attacment method?

Here is my newest cape patern. I measured it out correctly too, and it will be just long enough to the floor, and will drape off my shoulders nicely without really dragging much at all. Changed a few corners here and there, trying to keep the overall wide shape but have enough material to cover like ive been saying. This should work good. I'm planning to cut the templates out today.

I'm excited to see how this turns out. I was going to base mine off of Luda's cape pictures, but that's ALOT of fabric. This seems to use considerably less fabric, so would be cheaper to make. When you say you CAD cut the template out, how are you doing this?

Re: my BEGINS Cape Pattern / What do you think?


Where I work we have a machine that can cut out a pattern that you draw with illustrator or a program called CAD. You can make the machine do cut lines, score lines, fold lines, and lots of other types. We make displays at my work so we use the table all the time.
I basically drew the cape in illustrator, made it to the correct measurements I needed and then today I cut out the cape into 3 different template pieces for 1 half of the cape. Then when I cut it all out I will tape the templates down onto the fabric, and cut it out by hand. Then I flip the template over and do it for the other side of the cape.

My boss told me today that the machine can even cut fabric, so I'm actually going down stairs right now to test a piece of my material. Not sure how its going to work. The table sucks the paper down onto, basically its a airhocky table that works in reverse. But my stretch velvet might get caught up in the blade and slip... not sre yet. Ill let you know.

And yes I had three goals with this cape. Make it a scaled version of the flying cape, big enough to cover the front of my feet, and be shorter when pulled back to be a good action/stunt cape (meaning less fabric used too.) I believe I have met all these goals now. I'll let you know how to cutting goes. IF it works easily, I might be able to cut a few capes for people and trade them. Dont know if I could do the actual sewing of them, but I could at least cut out the fabric parts, which is the hardest part I think.
