Wire Framed Cape.

Been a long time since i’ve done a tutorial post!

This is actually upgraded from the Dracula cape which i made long time ago.

Stuff you need

1) Scrap paper (I used an A4 sized piece)

2) Wires used in Fake Flowers (Soft and malleable wires will do)

3) SPVA Glue (White craft Glue)

4) Black Cloth

5) Red Felt

6) Scissors

Steps

1 ) Nice Boat the Selected figma to turn it into a headless Horse Figma.

2 ) Roughly trace the Outline of the cape on a scrap piece of paper, with the figma infront.

Wooo Cape!

3 ) Cut the Shape out and finalize the dimensions. (As long as it looks good, you are fine.)

(Steps 1-3 are ripped off from the Dracula Cape tutorial)

In this case, i did not make a dracula cape, but instead just a normal plain cape

4) Create the wire frame. Take 2 sheets of paper and sandwich the wires between them.

5) Apply an adequate amount of glue to stick them together.

It should look like this.
