Posted:I think that anyplace you look darlin will be expensive i think you would be better off trying to make one......

how about you get a squaree piece of fabric lay the edge over your head and place a pin or something like that betwen the two edges close to your head thats all i can think off...

But hey im a bloke.


There may be one for everyone but what if there is two for three would that mean none for someone or did they start off without one....

Posted:Making things, especially clothing items, is always easier than it seems.

You can buy 'muslin' at a very cheap price per yard at any fabric store (like a pound a yard)... Muslin is used as cheapo fake fabric... then make the cape you want. When You've got it the way you want it, go back and buy nice fabric and remake it.

I promise it's not as hard as it looks. To paraphrase a quote I heard...

"The only thing between you and the cape you want is your own lazy ass." smile

Enjoy... and post pics. biggrin


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

If you want a cheapo option maybe look in op shops for curtains

Posted:just find an cheep pattern for a clock and your set! even an op shop might have some old ones. or go to a fabric shop look in the big books they have, normaly costumes at the back of the book, or ask them. the best bit about that is you can get whatever kind of fabric you want for the look you want. have fun biggrin

What if we think the jokes on them,
But really - the jokes on us....

Posted:Would that be the Tidy Weekender youre going to?? I'm jealous if it is!
As for the cape,have you tried white bin liners? really easy to cut and sellotape together,and you can get quite creative with them!I made my mate a fairy outfit out of some last halloween.he looked lovely,and won first prize in his office fancy dress comp!
