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!!!

found this little tutorial granted its for a beach robe but the idea is the same, it has pictures also but i didnt read in detail so hopefully she does well explaining the process. looks fairly simple. http://www.danamadeit.com/2013/03/pattern-remix-beach-robe-pattern-to-cozy-house-robe.html

this one is a little more simple but may be able to go off the pattern. http://nenesta.deviantart.com/art/Simple-Hooded-Cloak-Pattern-286331009

and this one looked helpful. http://diyfashion.about.com/od/costumes/ss/Make_a_Cape.htm
