how to make a stand up collar for a costume

Or painting a thin coating of glue that dries clear....might give it some stiffness? The defined shoulder is having a moment. I wanted to use my graduation gown to make the cloak as well but didn’t know how to improve it. If mine are off a bit, I serge them to look nice.
