    Capes should be purchasable, attached to skins, and unattached to skins, so they can be used on all skins, if you want to buy a cape pack, or if you buy a skin pack, it can have a preset cape, that can only be used on the set skin, but can be overwritten using cape packs, but those are just my thoughts.

    Maybe Minecraft will also have some kind of giveaway for free capes if this idea came true

    Honestly, I'd really just love capes to come back. I was always too young to go to any Minecon conventions, and they ended a while ago. I would gladly pay money to get a cape. Maybe there could be normal set options for a price, but then for a little bit more money you could make a custom cape. I really hope this or something similar happens in the future.

    You should also be able to make your own custom cape in an editor that maybe costs a little. Also this is a great Idea since you can also see there has been a trending search “cape” for a few months in the marketplace.

    Hi! I, am a big fan of your work. And I want so much a cape, or should I say the Minecon 2016 cape since I could not of attend it. He's my story, I got leukemia and was in the hospital for 3 months. I planned to go, but cannot cause of my treatment. And since I could not make it I was wondering if you could make Buyable Capes. Like on Amazon, minecraft.net or others site to buy things. So please be add Buyable Capes, so we can all enjoy the beautifulness! Please, please add it! Thanks alot!

    They probably make a new cape for free just like what they did with the founders cape this year, although it will be cool to purchase cape packs if something like that to happen in the future.

    Yes, I’m going to add on that and say that if a skin in a skin pack you own has a cape on it, you should be able to use it in the character creator

    Keep Java clean! Keep Java clean! Microtransactions contaminate everything!

    Bedrock is already too far gone (but it could also be MUCH worse)

    (I don't want to imagine EA getting a hold of Minecraft)

    And you should be able to make 1 custom cape per player (only for players with accounts)

    Not just buyable, but also customizable. Say someone has a knight skin that they use, but wants to have a medieval looking cape to complete the look, or similarly with a superhero. I understand that capes were a major achievement for attending Minecon back in the day or somad, and that's fine. However, a lot of people want to use them not just as swag or promoting elitism, but just for aesthetics alone (the pancape is cool and all, but what if I want just a plain red cape for my skin....)

    That, or just add a slot in the Character Creation tab where one could upload their own design not unlike how one can upload their own skin. It wouldn't be that hard...

    Capes are cool, but could have so much more potential... It's 2021 people, not 2016...

    No, because then the capes dont have value anymore. So for me is a no.

    I’d like to get a cape for my Minecraft videos but, I don’t feel like waiting for a Minecon.

    I think this is a great idea! Maybe you could add a custom cape option like the one in Optifine where you can create a cape from an editor, or even have a customer cape where you can draw and submit it to be approved by a mod.

    Capes should be more common than they are now.

    Ideally, any capes you own in Java could be used on Bedrock in the Dressing Room, or Bedrock's capes you own in Java's skin menu. It'd also be good if our capes from Minecraft Dungeons could be used in both Java and Bedrock (and Dungeons emotes in Bedrock since they even have duplicate emotes from Bedrock in Dungeons), think cape parity. This gives us more colors to pick from to match our skins (since we only have a gold and blue cape on Bedrock & the Red Migrator on Java for most recent players). It would also encourage players to play Mojang's other games to try earning the other capes.

    Purchasable capes would also be nice from either promotional material (similar to the promo codes in cereal or with action figures), or on the marketplace on Bedrock. Skin pack exclusive capes should be usable on any skin (Jeb's Scarf cape in Skin pack 3).

    They could also give out capes in Minecraft Now's/Minecon Live's Livestreams so any player tuning in or who attends can get it (not just attendees due to the pandemic and ticket scalpers). Scalpers have always been a issue with Minecon so giving everyone the cape who tunes in or shows up to the convention could fix it so only players who are passionate about the game and actually want to attend a convention can get tickets and go instead of just scalpers.

    Capes have been the only way Java (which lacks Bedrocks level of customization) and in general players can customize in addition to their skin.

    Capes need to change; they've been being abused especially on the Java Edition specifically because they're rare & players who have them are at risk of harassment or stalking due to bad actors who want to sell them on black markets. I have received hate, random emails, & threats because of the capes I have and many others share that same experience. Capes never should have been as rare as they are and there should have been many free or purchasable capes and alternatives instead of only NFT-like, near impossible to get capes which are forever unobtainable.

    Bedrock has it's Pancape which every player gets upon buying the game. Java should also have a default cape like this.

    The Vanilla cape is cross platform, all capes should have cape parity and be cross platform.

    Capes from Minecraft Dungeons could cross over to Bedrock and Java since its possible via the PlayFab API (Which Dungeons also uses); you earned cosmetics by playing Minecraft Earth and getting achviements in Minecraft Bedrock, no reason why the capes using the same texture format cant cross over.

    Give them out during Minecon live or Mob vote for voting.

    Capes need to be devalued as the current implementation breeds elitism, hacking, harassments, threats, all kinds of other nasty behavior, and puts players with capes at risk; not helped by the fact that the only way for new players to get capes on Java is to go to black markets (yes, even for Migrator & Vanilla capes). Capes need to be more inclusive and less exclusive.
