I am kinda committing thread necromancy here, but I didn't want to open up a new thread.
I have been looking over a lot of people's Miranda's cosplays I have noticed a variety of techniques to tackle her costume.
I was planning on attempting her Loyalty outfit, but only with making an actual pants and jacket instead of the catsuit and paint method. So I guess my question is this... the side panels that are generally orange/gold, what kind of material would you use? To me, it looks like the same breathable material from a pair of men's basketball shorts (because of the black dots). I was debating the wisdom of trying to use that in my piece. Would I be better off with the paint method, if only for my sanity? Since I do plan on using vinyl?
