Back in January, I purchased several yards of black stretch pleather from http://stretchhouse.com/index.htm
. I made a simple Catwoman costume, including gloves from it. Simply trying it on caused rips in the leather itself. I...t did not tear at the seams, but rather shredded the pleather layer from the under layer from each other. Walking around in it for an hour caused even more tearing, even in the gloves! It was so bad that in day one of the convention, I had to change after just two hours of walking around because it was tearing apart.
Knowing it was such poor quality, I emailed StretchHouse to ask for amends but no emails would go through. After several calls, I finally reached a represenative and gave him my plea for a partial refund for the black pleather (as the other half of the order hasn't been tested yet) I was told no refunds were allowed and when I explained that it was bad quality leather, he actually began yelling and said that I should have known that and it was my own fault for cutting the fabric in the first place! I kept saying that there was no reason on my end for the costume to tear.. I even have witnesses who saw me doing nothing more than walking in the costume! He still yelled and said they were not responsible because they ordered their fabric from Korea, therefore it wasn't their fault.
So now that's a complete wasted... please, please, please do not order from this horrible place!! Let every cosplayer know to not waste their money and time!
