Isn't Darklord1967 the master of the cloth cape? I think he posted a great step by step WIP on Fwoosh, but I can't find it.

Probably the two most important things are to select a material that's thin enough to look good in whatever scale you're working in and to make sure you have clean/sharp cuts in the material's edges and/or hem it so it doesn't look ragged (unless that's the look you want.)

The other advantage to hemming your cape is that you can sew thin wire inside it, making the cape poseable.

I know a lot of figures of the 1980s utilized cloth figures and clothing. I have a Batman figure that had a cloth cape and I recently found a Superman from 1989 with a cloth cape too. It primarily depends on the pattern (for example, the Series 1 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Splinter has a cloth outfit that I think is a bit of a semi-circle cut). As for tutorials to make one, here's a YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASzioPy4Ido

Another I found: http://figurativelyspeaking-miked.blogs ... -that.html

I don't know if that'll help, but I'm sure others here have some more they can suggest.
