  1. hello, the shoes look stunning! I much appreciate the tutorials for bootcovers and you explain this so good even a beginner like myself feel that I can give it a chance! ;D

    I do have one question I would love to get an answer to if possible. I am planing on doing a Young justice Robin cosplay and I must ask what kind of fabric would you recommend? I would like for it to look a bit like PVC but not too shiny. is this possible with spandex?

    Hope your studies get along fine, have a pleasant trip and I look forward to see your finished costumes :D

    Kind regards,
    Kirk

  2. @Kirk sorry I am very slow to reply to comments! You can get 4-way stretch fabrics at spandexhouse.com they have a really big variety of finishes, you can most likely find something that works. I really like matte milliskin and wet-look spandex the best.
    Thank you!

    Should I use a vinyl type fabric, most other cosplayers do for her but then wouldn't that be much harder to make, or do you have any tips on using a fabric that doesn't give at all?

  6. I used one of your tutorials for boot covers for a con last year and ran into some problems when it came to draping and pinning the fabric. Do you have any suggestions to make the pinning process easier?
