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.
