    I love to be able to craft and wear capes. If it were to open to being able to wear Elytra and or a backpack. then I think making it unlockable is a great idea as well if you can not craft Moncon capes than what is the issue? A wearable banner would be awesome. a slot for a backpack would be great too, and I have seen plenty of people wanting to be able to wear a chest piece with elytra. I do not think it a bad idea, in survival elytra are hard enough to find and get as well as being extremely easy to lose. even without a chest piece potions and enchantments can make you pretty OP. no matter how op it is though one miss step and the elytra and all the enchanted gear finds its self under a large pool of lava or at the bottom of the Abbys. the added armor is just going to lure people into a false sense of security which will more often than, causing them to miss step and lose all their gear anyway.  If you add in having to beat some boss to get some special item to unlock that back slot on top of that, with some extremely difficult or expensive recipe. I do not see it has a bad idea at all or broken. - maybe a reason to add in a Lava Cracken in the Nether?  whats an expanded inventory or some back bling really going to hurt? the more players can customize the look of their character the better, helps keep the players invested.  By the time you are farming out the End regular mobs stop being much of a worry anyway.  I like the Idea

    This could be a part of a bigger add-on: accessory slots, which will not provide armor, just cosmetic effects. The "cape" accessory should't be a banner, you should use the loom to convert a banner into a cape. Special templates for banners and capes could be unlocked by completing achievements.

    More accessories can be made and customized from the loom as well, like hoods, jewelry, and other articles of clothing. You could just skip the banner conversion and use the UI in the loom to customize your accessories.

    What about red banner + black creeper charge? That would be very similar to the OG Minecon cape.

    I like this idea, but I think MacchuPicchu96 has a point. I'm still voting anyway.

    superluig164 I know you made this comment a while ago, but I think it SHOULD be a separate slot because the capes are purely cosmetic, and don't affect gameplay at all.

    Or you get a special cape for a advencment. You can turn it off. It would show player progress in servers.

    While I disagree with the fact of being able to wear both armor and elytra at once, I LOVE the idea of using banners as capes people with the rare ones from conventions would still be super special because the design is impossible to make with dyes on banners! 😊love this idea

    Pros and Cons:

    Pro: Backpack can increase inventory space, if added

    Con: Mojang has stated that Elytras are not ment to be equiped with armor. The point of them going on the torso slot is to make armor balanced: Either have fast travel or high defense. 

    Pro: Pets? Why not, right?

    Con: Shulker Boxes already exist, making most things you can put in the cape slot useless

    Capes should remain extremely rare. That's the whole point to them.

    Yes I agree but you should probably not have to advance to unlock it. It should just already be there.

    I think it would be a great idea if players would be able to craft a cape in the same colors as banners and put banner patterns on these capes. They would be worn as an armor piece and since the MINECON capes are not crafteable with banners, theese would be special.

    Also, elytras could be dyable and players could also put patterns on elytras.

    Theese ideas could greatly add to the customization aspect of weareables to minecraft, so every player or faction can have a personal design and have it on their shield, cape, elytra and base.
