Shame. Although I would have described your garment as a cloak rather than a cape, as it is long and has a hood. To me, a cape is usually a short garment, sans hood, and preferably made of a soft, drapey fabric like satin. Am I over-thinking things? And what do you actually play in - is it made of satin?

As an aside, I did wonder at first whether a cape was genuine drum terminology for something rather more pedestrian, in the same way as stools (the seat variety) are called thrones.
