    Jun 23, 2011, 2:42 PM - ROTJ Cape details? #1

    Hey guys,

    Yet another newbie question. So I ordered a US military half shelter for my cape. Couple questions though what is the correct size and shape to cut it and what do you think the best way to weather this bad boy (The shelter is in pretty good shape unfortunately lol) Thanks

    I also think it kind of depends on your height. The cape should come down to almost calf length. I trimmed mine so it would end about there.

    K cool ill check that out for sure. But apart from dragging the cape behind my car to rough it up, is there any techniques that might be useful to get that "I have hunted alot of bounties over the years" look?

    clean the rims of your car with it. Real dirt ftw! Also when you fraw the edges, hit it with low grit sandpaper, like 60 grit. And for some spot stains pour some rwal dark coffee on it in a random pattern.
