So what should i use for the cape/cloak and the darker material on the pants and upperbody?
I made my boyfriend into Mystogan last year (listed in my cosplays if you're interested in seeing how it turned out). I used gauze for his leg and arm wrappings (can be bought in first aid section of pretty much any store) and I used a silver and navy blue color of I believe a bottomweight. Quite frankly, I just meandered the fabric store and felt the fabrics, looking for one that was a little heavier but still laid nicely. I used the same navy blue fabric for his hat, cape/cloak, shirt and pantaloon looking things (i.e. a LOT of it). The silver was just for the stripes on the pants. I also bought some really heavy interfacing for the collar, so it stood up on its own. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me!
