wrap around capes:

get your size, and cut the first half:

flip the cape in half, and trace around, and cut the other side

If you're just going to have 1 color to your cape the just glue it to the collar bone area of the figure:

flip back over the shoulders to allow your figure's physique to show

To add a second color to your cape just lay the first color onto another piece of cloth, and fabric glue the 2 layers together

Thanks. Been thinking about making a Batman custom for a long time. Need to make a bigger cape than the ones i normally use.

Over the shoulder cape:

You'll want to cut 1/2 of the cape out, and fold it over the uncut cloth, and cut the other half for symmetry.

Next split the chest (since tutorials have been posted for this I'll skip), and drill 4 holes in the shoulders 2 in each.

Then fold the cape the way you want it, and put it in place down the front of the torso w/ the back/ outside of the cape against the chest so that when you fold it back over the shoulder while holding it in place it lays the way you want (this part was impossible to photo so you'll need to imagine/ figure it out as you're working) . Then start stitching in, and out of the holes a few times on each shoulder individually.

Then just put the figure back together.

Here is what it looks like v.s. the Dark Knight Batman's cape
