Need help finding fabric
Hi guys, so I'm planning to tackle a Shadow Rise cosplay in my spare time, no specific date it needs to be done by, but I'd like to start on it sooner than later as I've got a lot of free time at the moment and I don't fancy letting it go to waste. Here's the link to the costume plan on my profile, I've put 3 different refs up on there, some concept art, an in-game ref and one from the anime version.


I'm all well and good with the construction of the cosplay, it's just that I have no clue where to find fabric in that pattern. My first thought was to see if there was a zentai suit printed with he pattern, but I had no such luck finding one. I've seen another girl cosplay this before, so I know it's doable, I'm just not sure where to find matching fabric, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hiya, I had a bit of a search for you, I found a few possible fabrics, these first 3 are within the UK:
Hippy Swirl Spandex
60's retro dance lycra fabric
Kaleidoscope Shock lycra fabric
This one is from the U.S. Printed Spandex (Fuchsia/Red/Blue/Multi)
I hope this helps you out

Oh wow, they're super expensive haha. Thanks though. Now that you've shown me these places, I have one other idea about a local shop that may actually have it. Thanks again!

You could get a white zentai and use fabric pens to colour it? A lot of work, but you'd get the exact pattern you wanted.

Alternatively, there are places which will do custom prints for you. I have no examples of companies, but I saw a tutorial for a Spiderman cosplay where they got it all professionally printed on. Again, exactly the pattern you need, but probably more expensive than buying the less accurate material!

I haven't used them myself but if you look up Spoonflower they are one of the places that can print your own specific fabric design for you if you can make a mock-up of the pattern for them as a computer file. It looks to be abroad however so it could be a bit more expensive than you'd prefer it to be.
