Jacket Zipper Help?

I'm making an Organization XIII cloak from Kingdom Hearts (here's a good shot of it).

The thing is, I already have a large zipper - the one they use for heavy-duty travel bags, I believe. The only problem is that it's not one of those separable jacket zippers. Is there a way to make a regular zipper into one of those jacket zippers? Like... Is there something I can tack on the end of it so that it will separate? Google-fu is leading me nowhere. :(

HALP? :|

PS: I cannot buy one of those giant separable zippers from the Internet.

no, sorry, it is nigh unto impossible to convert a zipper and have it be useable. Thing is, in that picture, the zipper is broken, the tab is at the top and yet it's undone at the bottom. If you installed a zipper upside down the tab would be at the waist instead of the neck. artist logic fail.

Actually I thought it had two zipper pulls like on certain athletic jackets.
