Plug suit/catsuit material suggestions?
I'm planning a Gjinka GLaDOS cosplay and I thought it would be a good idea to design her in a white plug/catsuit
(I know, white, what was I thinking)

Anyway can anyone reccomend a good place to buy something ready made. Or failing that, suggest a material that wont be too seethrough and shiny but still be breathable?

You could maybe try a white Zentai suit. I know they have full face masks but I believe they're a separate part. In terms of breath-ability someone else would have to answer that because I don't think anyone would want to see me in a Zentai suit

I looked into it, but I couldn't find anywhere that does really good quality ones that aren't too expencive

Loads of people on here seem to use the Zentai suits for various things so hopefully someone else can point you towards a good source. What's your kind of price range?

maybe about £30 as a maximum, unless it's amazing quality. I dunno if that's optimistic or not

Have a look on ebay. You should be able to get a zentai for about £30. Failing that, get hold of some white lycra and Kwik sew pattern 3052.

Zentai's probably your best bet.

Though my personal feeling is that PVC would be a better material as it gives you that plastic look, but it's tricky to work with!

I bought a zentai suit last year for a cosplay, and it was a zentai suit but with shiny PVC-ish lycra used, so that might be the option you want I'll go and see if I can find the seller again and then post a link.

No luck on the seller but I found this: Link

There's also this: Link
but that's covering all of you, but you might be able to ask them to send it without the head? You can usually with most of them, I had to ask them to make eye holes (I wasn't comfortable not being able to see clearly XD)
