I don't understand how this cloak is put together..
There's no clasp at the front, but rather it looks like it's a ring of cloth that's been loosely wrapped around the neck/shoulders. I'm starting to think that the ring of cloth is a completely separate piece from the actual cloak.. but I don't really get the point of that
How do I go about putting this together? I'm hoping I could combine it so it's one whole cloak and not a regular cloak plus a neck shawl thing, but I don't see how that would work since I would have to insert my head into the ring in order to wear the cloak. I would also like for the shawl to also function as a hood.
What fabric should I use for this, and how much would I need? I'm 157 cm, which is 5'2". It looks like the cloak would drag on the floor, but I don't want that since it'll get dirty really quickly.
The manga is set in Anatolia (around 13th c. BC), which is ancient Turkey, which is next to ancient Egypt. The character is a person of royalty, but also in the military. I'm thinking wool, but I'm looking for the least expensive fabric that I can use, but still looks authentic.
