    Lol, yes, I can vouch its a pain to futz. lol.
    I spent over two hours futzing with it, but the end results was worth it.

    Either way, both of Tony's cape is excellent.
    The non wired drapes really well.
    I really am a big fan of his capes.

    That makes a world of difference to my fatty bats if I were able to do it?

    Would you mind telling me how you did it?

    Thanks!

    Thanks. That is Lance's cape. I cut the length a little.

    I don't use a stand either. He was referring to the Enterbay base that I pictured him standing on.

    If it's velvet, it's shinny. The rayon ones are obviously matte.

    The velvet that doesn't fray when you cut it is shinny by nature. It's a very, very deep black, but it glistens in the light.

    That's the rayon capes.

    If memory serves me right...I'm not 100% sure on this, I think the wired cape is also darker.
    The wired cape that I got from Tony (for the QS001) is the perfect texture and color. Deep black velvet with no shininess. But it is a very stiff material. No natural drape to it at all. That's fine for the wired cape, but does he use the same material for the non-wired Enterbay cape? The non wired cape for the QS001 is something else entirely. Even thinner than the lforigno rayon. It literally futzes itself.


    But again, does Tony use the same stiff material as the wired cape for the non-wired Enterbay cape?

    If people do one mod to this figure, it should be this. That pad on the stomach is absolutely idiotic.

    Yeah, the EB cape works pretty well for this figure.
