And his name really is Luke! We play a SW RPG game, he wants me to make one for myself but I think I'm gonna wait for now...we already have matching combat boots, I don't want to look silly, lol!

I used the Simplicity pattern for this but left the capelet out. I have to do something about the hood though because it's overly pointy and the Jedi/Sith robes have a more rounded hood. I still need to find some type of clasp for the top that doesn't look feminine.

Do you know how hard it is to get an overly happy person to make a serious face?? These are the only good shots I could get. And sorry about the nasty floors, we're in the process of restoring them.

What do ya think?  Smiley

My Sith Lord name is Darth Tardius! Grin - Luke is just Luke

hahha i totally like this! but it looks like it's holding together pretty well at the top... i don't know. maybe you could put something on the inside if you wanted that extra stability

For the hood just flip it inside out and curve the seam there where it's pointed or squared...then flip it back and check it out.  Baste it first if you're nervous.  For the closure...would a rope-loop with either a button or toggle or even a knot from the same rope look ok for this?  It would be 'manly' but I'm not sure if it'd work for your theme...  Hope that helps- the cape looks great!
