This post should teach you how to get capes on vanilla minecraft.

Disclaimer: Not an actual cape, but works almost the same way(but without the wavy wavy thing)


Things needed:
  • A Skin
  • Skin Editor (PhotoShop,Gimp,Paint.net,etc.) (Do not use the default MSPaint!)
  • This Tutorial
  • 1.8 snapshot or higher

First Step

Grab your skin and make it to a 1.8 skin (You can use a Skin converter to do that) (You can use this :Skin Converting Sheep)
Difference of 1.7 skin and 1.8 skin


Second Step

Open your Skin Editor
Now put the cape under steve's torso and put a design
Example

Example 2

Third Step

Go to minecraft.net and change your skin. After that, test it ingame and you're done!
