Hello everyone. I'm trying to put together a Obara Sand cosplay from Game of Thrones which is my first cosplay btw.



I'm currently trying to find the right fabrics. Obviously the trickiest part of the costume is going to be the jacket/upper part. I guess some kind of faux leather would do. The problem is her costume has that particular type of pattern which is made of triangles. Obviously, I'll never find the exact same pattern since it was made for the show but if anyone knows something that kinda looks similar, please do share a link! I've already been through several fabric websites but can't find anything that kinda resembles it. So if you guys have some suggestions please share! Many thanks

I'm starting to finally get back into cosplay and wanted to start with little Shikadai from the next generation of Naruto I'm hoping to get him done before a con that is coming up at the end of July, but I'm stumped on the fabric choice for his jacket. I live in south Florida and I don't want anything too heavy... I don't wanna die haha. So fleece or flannel is out of the question for sure, as well as rather heavyweight fabrics.
Usually with cosplays this simple I would just buy a pair of pants that resemble it, but in case I decide to sew them (which has happened on occasion) I would like some suggestions for the pants too. Once again, something that wouldn't kill me in the summer in south Florida haha.

Anyone know of a fabric similar to Yaya Han's cosplay ultrapreme fabric (that's cheaper)?

Any idea what kind of fabric Deku's costume would be made of IRL? It looks like some denser, looser, and less stretchy form of spandex. I can't figure out what it'd be.

Ghost in Shell help!

So I'm planning out Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in The Shell and I can NOT find the right color fabric...and I don't even know what type of fabric would work best for her outfit. I stumbled upon a cosplayer who does an amazing Motoko, I asked her what fabric she used and got no reply so I wan hoping one of you might be able to figure it out!

Cosplayer with perfect fabric match: http://img.myconfinedspace.com/wp-co...R-700x1005.jpg
(cosplayer is Crystal Graziano)

Here are some references from the anime:

Do you have any recommendations on websites that sell vinyl or pvc in lots of colors? Main problem is that I can not find anything close to that color :/

My main problem is that I can't find that color anywhere. Have any good recommendations on sites that have pvc/vinyl in lots of shades?

Coran from Voltron

Hello

I'm gonna cosplay Coran, and I'm a little in doubt about what fabric to use. I was thinking some cotton-twill for the shirt (tunic?) and then I'm unsure about the trousers. Any and all help/advice appreciated
