I really want to make a cloak, a longish one in a neutral color (preferably greyish green, blue or or something of the sort). I figured that it would make sense to make one for a halloween costume, but I really don't have much time to make much more than a cape so I was wondering if any of you had any good costume ideas that would involve a cape and maybe other things that I probably have at home or could easily purchase?

The only costume like that that I can come up with is little red riding hood (well maybe not so little seeing as I'm 18 and 5'7'' xD) but I'd really rather make a cloak in a more neutral color so I might be able to use it again for something else.

Ideas would be awesome. I'm really drawing a blank.

Don't only the male hobbits wear cloaks though? Sad The girl ones wear big fancy dresses right?

I made a grey wool cloak for my red "warrior princess" costume based around a cheap sexy-red-riding-hood costume. It spent most of the night on the coat rack at the bar, though Tongue Wool is indeed warm for wandering to and from bars.

Ya but the male hobbits are so cool. you could girlie it up and make a dress to go with the costume. Just an idea. What about a vampire always in fashion

I know it seems unimaginative, but you could always be a witch or mage - but less on the side of cheesy or sexy and more on the side of actually sinister. Smiley

An elf?
A character from Zero no Tsukaima?

That's all I've got right now.

I think you could incorporate a cape of a light blue color with like a Bo Peep costume or maybe little miss muffet? I know they are a bit juvenile but you could certainly darken it up a bit i think.

If you're a fan of Beauty and the Beast, Belle wears a blue cloak.  You could also just do random Medieval/Rennaisance outfit.  You could also be a pixie or a wood nymph or a crone.  And with that I'm pretty well tapped.  Good luck!
