Fabric help? (Miss A cosplay)
Hello,
I'm cosplaying Fei's outfit from Miss A's Touch promotions but I'm not sure what to make it from.

Here are some refs:

If you watch this video you can see that the material doesn't really move like most fabric, like it's quite thick or plasticy?

I have no idea what to make it out of, so does anyone have any idea?

Thank you <3

it looks and moves like craft foam to me. But they're wearing skin coloured mesh tops underneath which the bands are stitched to.

I agree it does look stiff like craft foam but might be worth getting some matt pvc/leatherette fabric?

like this sort of thing:

hope that helps - 2bh if you get this from somewhere like hobbycraft you could could get several 10cm samples and it's a free cosplay

It's latex/rubber sewn to powernet/mesh. You can get it in pre-cut strips too. It's hard to work with, but if you're wanting the exact fabric then that's what it is. You'll need to check if you have a latex allergy before using it, but you can get similar latex free alternatives if you are.

Also, I approve of Kpop cosplay in general and Miss A cosplay specifically (though not quite as much as 2NE1)
