Exclamation Where to purchase fabric?

I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right place, it's been a long time since I've been active on here.
Anyway, I need both help in finding the right fabric and possible an online store to purchase it.

I'm making this costume from a video game:



Authentically, it's supposed to be buckskin, but I can't get a hold of that. The closest thing is suede, correct? Does anyone know a place where I can find a rich blue suede that doesn't cost me an arm and a leg (and Jo-Ann's, while they didn't have the correct color, they had the texture I wanted and it was $19/yd :/). Micro-suede, or anything that feels and is heavy like suede, will work for me as well. I'd prefer something under $12/yd.

Actually, if anyone knows of a store in the Chicago-area that may have the right fabric, that'd work, too.

Try searching for suede on fabric.com They usually have a ton of different colors for each fabric type, and you can order swatches really cheap to see if the color is actually right. And one of the best things is, their shipping is free on orders over $35. I buy from them all the time and have never been disappointed.
