    Apr 17, 2017, 8:22 AM - Best Affordable TDK capes? #1

    So I just bought a UD replicas TDK suit and need a cape to go with it. I know of a couple but if possible I'd like to avoid paying $300 plus dollars. What do you guys recommend?

    Well I'm aware that that's always an option, but I'm curious if there's one already made that works reasonably well.

    UD Replicas is fantastic for sure. As far as a cape goes, what I did was buy two, one for when I wear mine (cheaper via EBay $50-$65 range). The one cape I have for display on my outfit (mannequin) was a bit more pricey, but far better quality ($200).

    This is his. I copied the flat top and V in the neck. I just gave it much more scalloping at the bottom

    And only about AUD$60 in material, so prob about USD$45-

    Awesome dude! Thanks so much for the replies. I'm gonna give it a shot making one, but I still welcome all other options because I too might want a couple different options.

    Is there an actual pic of the movie cape spread out so you can see the pattern? Or even better yet, an actual cape pattern for the cape in the movie?

    Im looking at the one posted above and see that the segments don't all start up at the neck, which is very different from most cape patterns I've seen. Is that accurate to the movie?

    Hi, didnt find a Movie pic of the back.
    Found this youtube video, there you can see in some scence there is a V in the neck.
    I Think it is because the cape is fixed at the front of the chest/shloulders.
