Hey guys, I'm back for more.
So I've just been to a convention. I made a Loki costume and spent well over £400 at least and invested several months over it. Now, it was only a two day convention, and naturally it was very warm and it included a lot of walking.
After one day the trousers that I made out of fake leather was completely shredded at the top of my thighs and crotch area. With the amount of walking I did it was sort of understandable. However, the pleather has started to rip in other, silly places like in the corner of the cuffs, or a small area in the skirt and on the zip. I'm not sure if this makes much sense, but I'll take pictures if it will help clear it up.
So my inquiry is:- Does pleather normally do this? Or have I been unlucky enough to buy a nasty version of the stuff?
I was thinking of buying a 'better' quality of the stuff that doesn't rip easily but if all pleather does the same I won't bother. (If there is any better quality stuff, is there any chance of a few links? )
It's just really annoyed me that I've spent all this time and money getting this costume done and only getting one or two wears out of it.
Thank you in advance if you are able to help out.
