First time making an outfit mainly out of PVC, and it was ANNOYING. Having to sandwich everything in tissue paper when sewing, and having to topstitch everything, is a pain. Turned out well, though, and wasn't as oppressively hot as I'd anticipated.
What's kind of upsetting is that this fabric turns out to not be very durable; I've only worn the costume 4-5 times tops and already there's major damage that's had to be fixed. Not sure how much more wear I can get out of it, which is a shame since the character is so popular.
The wig is the real eye-catcher for this one; a tutorial on how I made it is at http://costuming.org/jinx-tutorial.html
