    I found quite a few people who used pleather, so I decided to go with that. It's okay, but I think for future costumes I'd like something else. Can anyone tell me what kind of fabric they use for Batman capes?

    I used faux leather, it is durable and mildly heavy but enough to free flow in the wind

    Thanks! I'll have to look into that. Seems like it would work pretty well. Hopefully it'll end up better than what I have now.

    Some places have it for cheap but where I went (walmart) was pretty expensive. 7.95/foot but here is what the texture looks like and what the full cape looks like as well

    Well, I'll try to find it for as cheap as possible. I really like your cape.so I'll probably be going with faux leather. This costume won't be started for months, though. :(

    Im not sure where you are from but you can order swatches for cheap on fabric.com if you want to compare some different types of fabric.

    image.jpg Mine is a cross between polyester and wool blend. Great weight and flows awesomely in the wind. Keeps me warm in the winter nights

    I'll think about that, too. Thanks. :)
