What I Made
This is a cape I made for a Death Eater costume. Without this webpage, I would've never have gotten off the ground...Thanks, stranger who probably won't read this, without you I never would've won a costume contest among my friends.
How I Made it
Walmart helped, just some black "sports fabric" that had a decidedly sinister look about it. Followed the tutorial with the exception of neck ties; I left those off to produce a less hobbity impression.
Tips and Tricks
- Make sure your measurements are as precise and equal as possible.
- Gathering isn't as hard as it seems...
Rain Blanken, DIY Fashion Guide, says:I totally read this! I'm so glad the cape tutorial came in handy with your costume... though I wouldn't want to run into you in a dark alley. You look like an authentically creepy Death Eater.
Inexpensive Walmart fabric comes in handy for projects like this... hopefully they don't close their fabric departments in the near future (as rumored). I'm posting this sweet costume on the DIY Fashion Facebook page and Tweeting about it!
