Vincent Valentine Cape by 6-fingers Vincent Valentine Cape by 6-fingers
One of the three pieces of my Vincent Valentine Costume which i still possess. The cape is modeled after the DoC version, which was slightly different (and i think an improvement) than how it was worn in AC. It measures approximately 5 1/2 feet from shoulder to ragged trailing edge. The cape itself is constructed out of velvet from an old theatre curtain, and though the picture doesn't show it, is a rich vibrant red as close to the original as i have ever seen. It is equipped with naugahyde straps, and air-drying-clay buckles, intricately sculpted and painted to match the originals. The specially stiffened upper cowl slips right over the head like a turtleneck sweater, and is quite warm let me tell you.

SOLD

hmm. thats an idea. ty ^^ that was one of the most difficult parts, i'd figure... but probably i am goung to cos play yazoo (one of sepiroths remnants, the one wor most resembles him) first. since i'll wait till its sales time and i can get all fabrick half price. downside is that i will not have very much time to make stuff like vincents in. but ah, well see. tnx for the help anyway ^^ (do you have a pattern for vince's coat, by any chance?)

Hey I was wondering how did you attach the buckles and the clay peieces of the buckles? Since I am in the staging process of making my own Vincent cosplay and have got stuck.

to attach the belts to the cape i believe i used staples (i dont have a sewing machine and/or am terribly lazy) and i used super glue to attach the buckles to the belts, i recommend sculpey over air drying clay as its less brittle

its also worth saying that i didnt actually have/use belts, i used two layers of fake leather upholstery, so it was black on both sides, easier to staple through

True I thought as much but I doubt I am going to be able to use fake leather
