Surplus of Fabric. No Ideas. Help?

So I have a surplus of this black pleather/vinyl alligator skin fabric that is kinda just sitting in my room. I buy all my fabric in bulk 5+ yards because I know I'll use it eventually and can get it cheaper that way.

I have found that my funds are not able to take the strain of both the con admission on costume construction price I'm having to use what I have on hand for the upcoming con. Which is mostly the black fabric since I have most of it.

I just don't have any idea about what to do with it. My body type is definately fuller figured, but not to wear its disgusting. Just to where I won't look good in a body suit which is the only thing I found involving leather. I think it would make a decent dress, but I wouldn't know what character has a leather dress.

Right now I'll take any suggestions since i have a few months before I need to get worried.

Thanks ^^

The most of characters that come to mind that wear lose black leather are male character so are you willing to crossplay? but if not there is Aveline from the new Assassin's Creed game for the PSVita, Larxene from Kingdom Hearts, or Visas Marr from Star Wars Knights of The Old Republic 2.

I'm actually in the same position right now. I have a ton of black plether, about 5 yards worth. I initially bought it for a Freya(from chobits) costume. However I've been stuck with the excess for about 4 years now and I'm at the point that SOMETHING needs to be done with it. It's too bad that it's not a dark grey or it'd be perfect for a Lulu dress.
I'll be looking forward to good costume suggestions!

Okay thought of a few more C.C. from Code Geass has a black leather dress outfit, Luka from Vocaloid, 2pFemRussia from hetalia, Lust from Full Metal Alchemist wears a leather dress, and Hagane Miku from Vocaloid.

Do you have any pictures of the fabric? It would be easier to give suggestions that way.

This is the fabric:



Its marketed as poly suede, but the actual fabric is close to vinyl. It isn't as glossy as the picture makes it out to be but not entirely flat either.
