UK/Europe-based supplier for matte stretch vinyl, leatherette, wet look spandex, milliskin?
I'm working on a cosplay of Nowi from Fire Emblem (http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130509154320/fireemblem/images/8/8c/Nono_Official_Art.jpg) and making some very fitted over-the-knee boot covers. I plan to use a heavy matte 4-way or 2-way stretch material in very dark purple.

I'm fine with shopping online, but all of my searches are coming up blank for anything but American suppliers... where does everyone here usually buy that sort of thing?

Thanks so much for any help~

This is a tough fabric to hunt down in the UK, which is probably why there haven't been any replies yet.
I've seen 2-way stretch in person at market shops like Goldhawk Road in London, but markets rarely have the same stock if you go back later. I haven't seen a 4-way stretch personally.

All I could turn up was:
http://glitteranddanceuk.co.uk/products/uk-dance-stretch-vinyl
http://www.tissufabrics.co.uk/fabric-store/metallic-fabrics/stretch-wet-look-fabrics/semi-gloss-wet-look-fabrics.html
http://www.cheapfabrics.co.uk/thestore/product_info.php/products_id/3590

It can be worth using eBay and you can add 'pleather' to your list of terms. You may have to resort to using black just to get this fabric or try the spandex options, but best of luck!
