The traditional version of the coloring: a dark background (blue or black) and decorative elements of silver and golden color.

This is allowed by each astrologer himself. The costume can be decorated with stars of different sizes and colors.
The mantle is sewn from a large rectangle of fabric. On the long side of the cut should be sewn a cake for a lace or ribbon. The stars can be cut out of shiny fabric, wrapping paper or use ready-made sequins, textile stickers for applique. The costume of the astrologer with his own hands is sewed without a pattern, because it is not difficult to determine the size of a rectangle for a mantle. If the tissue is small, it is not necessary to sew a long cloak - you can confine yourself to the cape just below the waist. The edges of the mantle can not be processed, but neatly sewed or trimmed with fringe or tinsel.
