Just sharing this since I find it interesting for those of you who have Keaton's Batman and find its cape fluffy.

I found 2 ways of doing it and it's up to you to decide which way to follow or you just want to leave it as it is.

1st method:
This is the more risky method, which means you have to cut the cape and remove the inner wire and lining.

2nd method:
This is the safer way and just required more patient (no cutting).

Results:

NOTE: These solutions are NOTfrom me. I'm just sharing.
So try at your own RISK.

If I know method 1 earlier, I will bid a dx09 cape (if can get about RM 50) and "permanently" mod it hahahaa.. but now... very expensive

Guys, if you read what Maglor did, he actually tried to dyed the inner cape into black too.

So, that could also contribute to why the leather cape has became somewhat lifeless (constant wet and drying) and thus it look more natural like in the pic.

I doubt if he just removed the inner wiring only will make it look so natural. It will still have some fluffy-ness but not as bad as with the wiring.

2 videos for 1st method.

Credit to Raymond Ferraro.

The 2nd video actually talked about my point in my thread, about the hand sticking out.

This guy actually smart enough to take off the hand to make it look natural.
