Anybody know a good source for robes and cloaks. Looking for something with a big hood like a Reaper / Ring Wraith / Evil Emperor look with a little bit of weight to it to keep ya warm

It would be quite easy to make - I've done it myself using heavy fabrics and a simple pattern, so you might look for someone local that can sew this up for you if you buy the pattern and fabric.

Otherwise, I'd check with ren festival clothing sites if you're wanting a heavy cape that is constructed like real clothing instead of costume type stuff. There are some ready made out there...

They have a plain black velvet, and black/purple and black/red reversible but not sure what the heft of the fabric is so you'd probably need to do some research.

Don't know this site, but similar cloaks:

my husband bought me this one a couple years ago. its long and the hood is huge, can hardly wear it over my head if i want to be able to see. made from some sort of crushed velvet feeling material (probably synthetic, i dont know i havent looked at the tag) and closes at the neck with a decorative velcro piece. it keeps me relatively warm but its not super heavy either.
