An immensely powerful magic cloak. While wearing it, the user can make themselves invisible, as well as change their form to almost whatever they desire. The wearer is also able to teleport across distances and dimensions, as long as they know where they want to appear. The cape is nearly indestructible, though other magic, if strong enough, may cause some harm.
Boy Blue was assigned the task of testing it's capabilities when he first donated it to the Fabletown vault. He previously was given it by Colonel Bearskin as a means to escape the battle at the Last Castle once the enemy overpowered them. When the final resistance fell, Boy Blue used it to teleport himself onto the final ship out to the Mundy realm.
It was later used by Boy Blue during his infiltration of the Homelands. He managed to sneak his way through the Adversary's forces by taking on different forms.
The cloak was a catalyst in Boy Blue's death as well. While wearing the Cloak, Blue tried to block a magic arrow from hitting Bigby. As the arrow was enchanted to always hit it's mark, it negated the cloaks protective barrier, travelling straight through Boy Blue's arm, to hit it's target. A piece of the cloak became lodged inside Boy Blue's body, and it made him gradually weaker until he passed on.
Shortly after Mister Dark's reawakening, the Witching Cloak disintegrated and vanished, it's magic having been drained into his person.
