Can anyone help me find a simple hooded cloak (like a grin reaper style cloak) tutorial with pictures to help me figure out what to do?  My son wants to be the "Red Death" from the Edgar Allen Poe story - and has asked me to sew a full length red cloak and he plans to use facepaint to make his face look like a skull (which should be only peeking out from a big hood).  I have searched and searched and there are a ton of tutorials without any pictures - and I've searched youtube too. Can anyone point me in the right direction?  I'm hoping the pattern will mostly have rectangles and very simple construction.

Thanks!!!

This site doesn't have pics but scroll down a bit to see a drawing of the pattern pieces and how they are laid out on the fabric. http://www.eg.bucknell.edu/~lwittie/sca/garb/cloak.html

The simplest cloak is just a donut shape with a slit, in other words, a big circle with a smaller circle cut out of the center. Nicer hoods are slightly shaped, but for a quick and dirty Halloween costume that won't be worn again, you can get away with a simple rectangle shape.
