Capes Mod 1.18/1.17.1 allows you to wear any cape you wish, cost-free. This mod also allows you to wear any elytra you wish in Minecraft.
Capes are extremely rare vanity items and are worn in addition to the player’s skin. There is currently no way to obtain a cape on one’s own, although there are various mods that allow players to obtain one, only visible to that player (or in some cases, other users of that mod). In the Legacy Console Edition and Bedrock Edition of the game, some skins from various skin packs include capes. Players on Java Edition who legitimately have one or more capes can choose which to wear (including no cape) by going to their Minecraft profile.
