4th January 2012: Pondering Cape Fabrics So I thought about using a type of leatherette for the cape, but that will likely be way too heavy, killing my neck and shoulders after a single day's wear. I've also considered cloth fabrics, but they may look too soft and plain against the print of the suit and texture of the cowl.
Then I remembered I've got this black waterproof woven material in the garage, kept from years ago. It has the feel of a vinyl or leatherette, but it's got this fantastic woven texture to it, like little I've seen before. Can't even remember where I got it, but I remember thinking I might have use for it in the future. If it's got the right weight and flow to it, it could work REALLY well for my Arkham City cape!
