I have an idea for a derivative (suggestive variation of a character, but original and not screen accurate)costume and I was thinking I could add to a base leather/pleather jumpsuit.
I convinced an online cosplay site to attempt it with their tailors in China, but despite providing very detailed measurements, it does not fit very well at all and is not the look I am going for. They made a jacket and pants, and the jacket design is cool but too roomy, and the pants are comically over sized on me.
I am looking for something cut close to second-skin like fit, but maybe just slightly roomier to allow free movement.
Anyone have any recommendations for a place?
Other ideas I have are to seek a place that offers custom motorcycle leathers, or to attempt some type of liquid latex over a lycra body suit with foam 'armor' panels glued on. I'd use a duct tape dummy approach to get the close fit I'm seeking. I maybe would not coat the entire lycra undersuit with liquid latex, and leave strategic areas open for heat venting.
Thanks for any advice and recommendations for vendors.
