Cape advice

Posted in Custom Workstation

I am looking to make a custome cape for the batman begins movie masters version. What is the best material to use and is there a template to trace from?

Thank you,
J

well I made a batman cape and put some wire through it so it could be posed. what I did is
I drew one half of the cape on a piece of paper.
then I cut it out and traced it onto another piece of paper.
then cut that out so both sides are axactly the same.
then I taped the two pieces together, now you've got a template.
then I put the template over a piece of black fabric and started to paint around the edges in yellow so it stood out.
once your done you have an outline of your template on the fabric so it doesn't move around and mess up the shape of your cape.
just cut that out and there you go.

the fabric I used was from an old halloween cape.
