After swirling around Comic Con in my dramatic coat-vest-dress thing, there is now no way that I can not make a cape for myself for everyday wear. (I know I talked about it before, but I’m serious this time. Anything to prolong the magic of nerd prom!)

I think my cape needs to be double-breasted, with some military-ish (ahem-steampunk-ahem) gold buttons. But I can’t decide on a color: Something bright, because I love colors? Or something camel-colored, to be worn with colored pants?  0162efee6af8753801df5fcf055b8a41 e82ea97ffe5320d1d2b6142e5640a566 f39d52ea00db30f4cfacac72df214c1a
I have a pattern coming from Ebay for the blue cape at top (thanks Kim!) so I have some time to decide.
