Material for movie version Black Widow?
Post By superjumper. 21/05/12, 03:15 pm

So, i have absolutely no idea what material to use.
I'm guessing that for the body suit i'd need about 5m of material, and i'd have a bit to spare in case of mess ups.
I have a max of $100 to blow on material for this, material wise.
I might be able to go higher in price if i have enough money left from my holidays coming up.
Does any one have any ideas on what material i should buy?
I'd be getting it from the Spotlight in Hamilton.
here's pics of the outfit:

Any help is appreciated!
Thank you!

There is a chick over in the US who is a MAJOR Black Widow Cosplayer ((LadyS for those who don't know her))

You would probably need around 3 meters of fabric at the most. Maybe you can make a mock-up first with something cheaper. A slightly stretchy material would probably look best. :)

Alright, off the top of my head I can say that Spotlight isn't going to have anything exactly right for movie Black Widow, but it does have something that'd probably suit reasonably well? There's a matte black lycra you can buy there for $26 a meter, which has plenty of stretch and would be great for a bodysuit. The only other bodysuit-appropriate fabrics they have at Spotlight are waaay too shiny for BW hence why you'd have to go for the pricier option, but it'd be worth it.

I can't remember the actual name they label the fabric with there off the top of my head, but it'll be in the lycra shelves and it'll look quite a lot like a non-stretch cotton or the like until you try and pull it.
