Battlesuit Jill (RE5) Fabric?
Hey, wondering what to make this costume out of and was hoping you guys could give me some good ideas!
Okay, so, the suit is Kevlar. First problem, I cannot locate any Kevlar fabric that comes in the colors I need. Second problem, Kevlar is really, really expensive and I would need a lot of it. I'm trying to keep my budget under $200 and this fabric would send me waaay over that.
Third problem, hell if I know how to sew with a fabric as heavy as Kevlar. Fourth problem, I think if I wear a suit entirely out of it, I will die of heatstroke at Otakon.
Anyway, I'm thinking about just buying premade metallic lycra zentai's.
I would go with PVC but it seems wrong, the suit doesn't look like PVC to me.
Do you think that would work?
Would there be any way to give the effect of more detail to the zentais, like lightly dusting them with a paint spray through some thin wire mesh?
I thought if I did that it might give it more depth and make it look a little more like kevlar.
