Question regarding magnets...

Posted in Custom Workstation

I'm in the middle of making a few customs that require capes. I've been looking for a way to make a cape that won't hinder articulation but still manages to stay firmly in place on the figure. After thinking through possible solutions I decided I wanted to try to achieve this with magnets. The problem is I have no idea where to start looking for what I need. It doesn't seem like craft magnets would provide enough magnetic pull, and larger magnets may not even fit inside the figure torsos. I thought about looking for small cylinder shaped magnets but I doubt that kind of thing would be available. Can anyone help?

I believe Hobby Lobby also has some too.

That's absolutely perfect, and the prices seem to be fair on everything. Thanks a lot, this will be a great help for when I finally make the capes.

I believe radio shack sells rare earth magnets. I think thats the kind customizers use.
