The inside of his cape was solid black and did not contain any phosphorescent dust. Hence, by manipulating his cape while standing in darkness, the Phantom Rider could appear to make all or parts of him self disappear.
Among his many tricks for feigning supernatural abilities, the Phantom Rider employed a lantern with which he could project an image of himself.
