Well....most people that do commissions of the Exorcist outfits make them out of either leather or pleather, but most people who handmake their Exorcist outfits themselves tend to use a fabris(I dunno which).

The way I see it is, their outfits are kind of like military outfits, and thus, I believe they are fabric, most likely cotton.

For starters, there's this giant handy thread (http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=79133) that stays pretty active.

Short answer:

A lot of us have been using twill. We're not willing to melt away in the summer deathtime sun with pleather. X3

There's a good opinionated debate about what the "real" fabric should be inthe giant thread. A lot of people think that they shinyness in the manga is just the mangaka's style, and I agree. Stuff that black needs some sort of definition, and black and white seems to be the running theme with D.Gray.

Thanks a bunch guys hehe xD
I decided against pleather in the over all run because I really don't want to die of heat stroke and be all baghaha.
Thanks for the comments xD
