Hello, minecraft community. I have read many threads where people wanted to remove their christmas capes or change how they look. Sadly, we cannot. But what if we could? Now you are probably wondering how this would work, so please allow me to explain it. You'll be glad you did.
I believe that our custom capes should use an mage seperate from our character skins, which we can upload seperately. The loadout would still show what your character looks like (skin preview), but would show your cape too (if you didn't make it fully transparent). This system I have just told you about has many advantages over just making the cape a part of your character's skin. Your cape would be completely transparent by default.
What are these advantages? First, it would make our characters more customizable. With the cape as a part of the player's skin, we could like how the person looks, but not the cape - some people might not use the skin just because they hate how the cape looks. With my system, we could have more freedom with our characters. We could use any cape with our character, or even decide to not make a cape at all. Also, unlike editing the game to show the cape you want, other players could see your custom cape, too. You would not be the only one seeing your cape, and you could even have a cape that nobody else has. Finally, it would get those people complaining about the cape on their characters to stop complaining. It would not break your skin, and whether you are wearing a cape or not would be optional. These forums would finally be free of threads that are people complaining about their characters wearing capes. Oh, and these custom capes would fit well with minecraft's theme.
In conclusion, having customizable capes would be a wonderfull thing to add to the game. It would let us have more freedom when it comes to customizing our character, and it would also fit the theme of the game. I don't see why we should not have this ability. Please support custom capes, Minecraftia needs them!
NEW cape template (Thanks, Googie2149!)

Orange = Sides (Left and right respectively)
Green = Area that faces the player
Teal = Top of cape
Red = Area that faces away from player
Blue = Bottom of cape
TLDR; We should have custom capes that aren't a part of the player's skin, but are still a part of the character ( Like the christmas cape and new years cape ). They would give us more freedom, and would also be very cool. Minecraftia needs them, so post some support.
free for all supporters.

Customizable capes would be cool. But I also think it would be fun if Notch arranged the capes to coincide with holidays. That way, characters can have their custom skin for most of the year, but when a holiday is coming up everyone gets a holiday cape (like when we all got the Christmas ones).
Either way would be fun, though. Just as long as the Christmas cape isn't permanent.
Why not make it part of the skin? If yiu don't want it on your character, then don't draw one on, this way we don't lose them if we die.
Glad to hear you support, but let me explain something - many people dont draw their skins, instead they like to download them. If the skin they really like has a cape they hate, they might not choose that skin. Also, the cape is NOT a craftable item, according to my post. I am saying that it would be like how it is now, but using a seperately uploaded file. This would give us more freedom with customizing our characters. Our christmas capes are using a system very similiar to what I suggested, except for the fact that we cannot customize them and that they do not appear on the on-site skin preview. Also, the current skins dont have capes, and the size of the image cant fit one on. Making the template larger to fit capes would either the skins we make, distorting the image by stretching it, or make them incompatible. If our skins are incompatible with minecraft, nobody can use them. We would have to remake our skins to be compatible. Some people made programs for creating minecraft skins - those would not work because they would be making incompatible skins. Oh, and we don't lose our christmas capes when we die, and since this suggestion uses a system almost identical to the christmas capes, we would not lose these capes upon death.
P.S; I hope you didn't TLDR, because I clearly said "On default, the cape would be completely transparent." That means we would not see the cape on your character (if you have it transparent). As you said - If you don't want a cape, don't draw one. I pretty much said that in the first post, in the second paragraph, I think.
