Dude, did you watch this video before you posted? I love the concept, but you and your cape are off the screen for the most important parts!

Thank you! This video was very helpful. The only part that I might change is the video angle for the on the ground detail. I got most of it, and was able to deduce the part I couldn't see on the hood, but maybe if you remade the hood creation part it'd be even better. I also plan on making my hood more rounded and snug in the back, and also put in arm holes, as it will work best for my costume, with your video I can easily modify it. Thanks again!

eeh it was semi helpful because for me personal its not detailed enough and pleazzzzze lenghts in CM is stead of yard and inches
