How do you pose in a cape?
I bought this cape at the op shop the other day. I liked the colour but it was really long and I already have a long cape. Since it doesn't have a lining I just cut the bottom off just below the last button. I think it's handmade because there's no tag. The person who made it lined up the stripes pretty well so it was easy to hem. I just folded along one of the lines.
It's kind of hard to take photos wearing a cape. I can't do my usual hands on hips pose for obvious reasons and the slits make your arms hang forward so all the photos look awkward. Well, more so than usual anyway. In real life I liked it better with the belt but looking at these photos, I think I like it better without.
