I made a Hogwarts robe for the Hufflepuff house (if you're not a Harry Potter fan this won't make sense, don't worry!) I happened to already have an extra badge for Hufflepuff. The robe was made by eyeballing proportions from this post and freehanding a pattern onto the fabric. I did shorten all the lengths since I am quite a bit shorter than the poster.
The robe is made from a black twill and lined with gold fabric along the front, sleeves, and hood. Of course I had to make myself a wand as well. A dowel rod painted brown and washed with copper paint, then buffed with black to age it. Here's a picture that shows the subtle shine pretty well.
I used a bit of leather craft twine to decorate the handgrip.
The grip is topped with a Turks Head, ode to time spent sailing :) Not pictured, I also have a waxed canvas school bag to carry. I've been experimenting with bag designs, will post if I ever make one I'm really happy with!
I haven't been around kids on Halloween since I was a kid myself so I am quite looking forward to this year :)
