Hi as you guys know I'm going to crossplay Oola and if it go's while I might wear it for C IV (If I get some one to go with me that is) I'm going to wear a spandex suit and have found a site that sells netting but I would like some tips on how to put the net costume together and other parts

Hoping to start soon after I tell my family what I'm doing (and ignore my brothers childish mocking)

I've always wondered how to put the netting together myself. I'm sure you'll get some great advice here.

The netting is a pain in the arse all i can suggest is talking to goth shops in newtown if you get into sydney much, because sewing fishnets is a horrible horrible nightmare (partial why i haven't done an Tann gella yet)

Also if your doing a body suit spandex is great but it has a high shine which looks odd in photos if they use a flash try ebaying Zentai suits they custom make them to your size and you can usually get a colour pretty close to what your after. I use a body suit because i refuse to spend 4 hrs painting myself for every troop i do :)

If you want an advice just find my facebook thread on here you can't miss it :)\

Just a note on pre-made bodysuits... Baltogs puts out a great bodysuit! Just look for ones that say they are made from "supplex" are matte. They sometimes don't specify the difference when you find a seller with multiple listings on ebay.

I really can't wait to see your crossplay!

While I found this, looks non shiny enough. Plus does anyone know where I could find the leather and sandals for it?

Are you able to sew and what kind of lekku do you/will you have?

I think to get the best color match would to be to make your own bodysuit and if you plan on having a fabric lekku, make it from the same material. That's just how i would personally do it.

Tandy Leather? that's my first inclination when someone says they want leather, or you could see if you can find the leather living as some other article of clothing at a thrift shop (leather jacket, skirt... so forth)

New South Wales leather in Alexandria or Birdsals down on bontany bay rd, failing that there are awesome leather dealers on ebay that sell it pretty cheap for a fairly big off cut.

The postage is also free and coming from melbourne it's really fast only took a couple of days to get to me i'm out in western sydney.
