@ Nandra: Okay that worked and wow!! I love the way your sword came out! I can't wait to see some photos of you in costume with the sword. It will be super awesome.
As for the cloak, I have always wanted to make it... but I knew it was going to be a monster to tackle... But yes! I think wearing it in winter will be too awesome.
I hope you find the time to work on your own too!
