Every cloak collection needs a Stevie Nicks cape. I love this one because of the ruffled hood, which makes me feel like a very grim princess--the perfect combination of black metal and lady.
I bought this rabbit fur trimmed cloak when I was vegan. It was second hand, so that’s totally cool, right? OK probably not. But who says a dietary restriction necessitates a fashion restriction? That rabbit died before I was even born. Plus this cloak outlasted my veganism by years.
This is the crown jewel of my collection, totally wizard and amazingly old. It has the most amazing gold leather sequins trimming the hood and pockets and is totally destroyed.
My only non-black velvet item, whenever I wear this jacket, I feel like an elven lass.
I think this was made for someone about five inches shorter than me because it gives me the most merciless camel toe. 50% Runways, 50% “Mama Said Knock You Out.” I wore it onstage at a Halloween show Battletorn played with Early Man. The resulting perma-wedgie (front and back) was incredibly distracting.
This isn’t velvet but it is a hooded cape so suck it. I’ve worn this as part of a sorceress costume for two Halloweens. It also makes it into my regular rotation far more than the other pieces. It’s Agnes B, most covetable of designers. Who knew that proper French lady was down with wizards?
