Playing video games is fun but sporting real life costumes is always a fun way to the bring the magic of the games to real life.  While playing skyrim I was stuck with such love of the greybeard cloak that I had to make my own wearable version.

The dragons scales were each made one by one of black suede before being applied to the cloak as were the interior holsters. The holsters can hold either light weapons or potions as well as various other quest items.


There are also two exterior pockets that are disguised as dragon scales one on each side. The detailed vest is made of fleece and in all the cloak is very warm. It secures closed with two mini buckles on the front. The inside lining is black cotton and a grey semi-transparent fabric for a aged, ripped and tattered look befitting such on old cloak. The sleeves are made mostly with black sweatshirt fabric with a stripe of black fleece. It is also adorned with suede feather trim on the sleeves and shoulder pads and grey fleece trim along the edges of the cloak. The hood is made of a slinkier fabric which provides a nice draping when pulled over the head.

I just have just been hired to make a Mens cloak. A more authentic cloak with a robe for a male client.  When I start the design thread, I will be sure to link back. In the meantime; this should wet the ole' whistle Cheesy

brilliant, I will keep an eye out for your next project!
I am stunned you havent had more replies for your cloak, but we are a bit " tucked away" over here in costumes.
