I peppered his whole cloak in fleur-de-lis, symmetry be damned!

If I had lined his whole cloak in fur, the poor thing would have been buried under its bulk, so I did it only at the borders and gave it my regular ermine tail effect.

To have them sit right on the dolls, I usually have to play around with the shapes of the cloaks, but it works in the end. =)

=D I like that reaction! I'm quite happy with it myself! ...if only I could do symmetry, I'd be 100% pleased by it... =/

=) Thank you!
Medieval clothing is pretty simple, so I had to vent my detail-freak-self over the cloak. :D

I love this cloak too! Those little fleur de lis are exquisite and the fur will keep him wonderfully warm in the draughtiest of medieval castles. Brava, dear! Brava!
