Hey all, I was going to do the tears in my ROTJ cape tonight and wanted to find out whats the best method to do this. are we talking about gashes or cut HOLES in the fabric before throwing it into the washer.

What I did was find a good spot for a hole. grab it by that spot with 2 fingers so the rest drapes down and cut a small hole up by my fingers. Then when you can hold it by the top and see just how big the hole is. If your not happy with it then just cut a little bigger. If this makes any sence good if not then sorry.

I've heard that if you tie it to a chain saw and hop on your right foot while trying to eat an apple with the same hand the saws in. Dude youll get it done quick.

I think I might try the nice and simple method of cutting holes. lol.

you're other suggestions though creative, wouldn't fly here in Chicago (such as driving around with a cape tied to my bumper...maybe in Southside, but not northside ! lol

One of those wire-brush attachments on a drill works well. Also, just scrunching it up and cutting a small piece, then washing it in the washing machine makes the edges all nice and frayed.

i just made a wet ring around a spot on the cape where the hole would go an lit it on fire that way the whole cape would not go up and I still got realistic burns around the hole. I did the same thing to give the bottom of the cape a shreded look.

Someone I know lit the edges on fire and then stomped it out :lol: . Kind of dangerous, but it looked OK. Of course it wasn't even close to screen accurate, and it was scorched all over, but it had a pretty cool look if your doing a custom mandalorian costume.
