Re: Cape Pattern Idea


to remove all those folding marks, you could (ironically) leave the cape in the bathroom while taking a shower. The steam should take care of it. Be sure to take a picture of it outside at night time and day time, to see how this faux suede reacts to light. This is something I may consider, especially if I get a BB UD Suit and don't want to get it wet!!

Re: Cape Pattern Idea


adding a tail is a nice idea. But actually alot of bats dont have a pointed tail like that. So that first photoshop design was cool too.

Re: Cape Pattern Idea


Got it back today. Looks good. I'm still not completely sold on the pattern I used. Just need to sew some velcro on, and tomorrow I'll get a pic or 2 of the cape attached to my jacket. I was able to irom most of the fold-creases, so no need to shower the shower curtain.
Indakin, next one I do will be done in sections, and probably won't have a tail. emoticon

Re: Cape Pattern Idea


Got the velcro tabs sewn on last night. Here's a couple shots of it outside, in direct sunlight. I'll try to suit up later to see how it looks when worn.

Some pics. Sorry for the poor picture quality, and lack of eye-black.

Re: Cape Pattern Idea*pictures added*


The cape worked out pretty well for the Fan Expo. I had lots of complimnets, and a big one from David emoticon
The material is so light, it doesn't feel like anything is there. And it's so big, when I was walking down the street, it was blowing waay in front of me--pretty cool.
If it was a bit darker, it would have been perfect.

Shower curtains! Great idea. I had a question? Did the seamstres sew a plead around the bottom edges of the cape too so it wont fray?

I saw it in person, the pics don't do it justice. It looked epic.

Looks really good. The length looks ideal for the suit and seems to hang nicely.

Haha! Thanks guys.
Yup, the seamstress went all around the outside of the cape so it wont fray. It only cost me $22. I was surprised.
