I need help identifying what the yellow/black piece would be considered. It doesn't look like a normal trenchcoat nor does it look like a hooded cape. Does anyone know the proper term for it or where I can purchase one? Tips to make one myself?

*GASP*
YES. DO THIS. AS NU, I WILL PROBABLY LISTEN TO YOU IF I RUN INTO YOU!

and because its terumi, i feel the need to help you. looking into a cloak pattern on google or buying one would be your best bet im thinking. just make sure it has a hood, obviously. heres one possible way to do it, even though it doesnt have pictures. http://www.ehow.com/...ak-sleeves.html

but yeah, a cloak pattern is probably a good start. hell, you can probably look into jedi or harry potter robes.

A twill would be ideal for that kind of cloak. You might be able to find a poly/lycra blend that should have a little stretch to it, while being thick and heavy. Stay away from gaberdine, unless you're wanting to sweat.

I would go the other way and start with a trenchcoat-like-thing such as this Simplicity pattern -- Simplicity 5386

then add a hood from either a hoodie pattern or a cloak pattern

but a cloak would probably work just as well. :)/>
