frontcloak.jpg

the front of the cloak..the cloak itself is made from red penne velvet, with the inner lining of dark blue satin. the fur is faux (fake) mink. I did the black tails myself.. so the fur edging is ermine. which is the mink white and black. the stout (where mink comes from) is an endangered animal... so its hard to even get real mink.
