    Jan 13, 2003, 10:37 PM - Fellowship of the bodysuit-To be Shipped!!! #1

    Second shipment estimated date: Tues Oct 26,2004 Please have your addresses to me for your neoprene shipment!

    New thread for the bodysuit fabric. This list is for those who are in the fellowship for the bulk fabric ordering for the body suit material of the zam outfit. For the newbs, we all believe that this suit was made from lycra and a foam backing, so we chose neoprene. The final material will be 6 yards (minus two inches) per person at 48-54" width, pantone 5135U(chosen from Dallas's trip to Australia at MOM viewing of the actual zam outfit displayed) with open cell neoprene (breathable) and blue nylon (to keep us from smelling like rubber) all laminated together. A sample of the prototype will be shipped to all those on the list. The material will come in a two months after the final order is placed. The seamstress will contact those interested in having thier bodysuits made by her, when the material is finished lamination. Many other questions can be answered by reading these webpages/threads in this order:

    **GULP** That's quite a bit per person. C'MON PEOPLE! JOIN IN! WE NEED MORE ZAMS!

    I need a PM too to find out how much this outfit is going to cost to have a seamstress work on it please. Thanks! Is this stuff workable to sew with a home sewing machine?

    Ooooh! Will there be another "run" sometime after this one? I'd have you put me on the list now, but I don't have the cash right at the moment

    No, after all this trouble, I doubt I will make another "run." I am really sorry Austin. If like 9 or more people said, please!!! then maybe. But a big NO otherwise.


    EDIT** A word to those who are doing the suit themselves, this is a four-way stretch material. Make sure to cut the pattern so that the top portion of the lycra that hangs over,is used as the edge of the top of your pants and the bottom of the crop top in order to prevent your suit from looking way too bulky on the edges.

    I'm definetly interested in ordering the fabric, but will it cost more to send it all the way to Holland? And have you got a pic of the color of the fabric? It's a lot of money so I want to be sure it looks good. A friend of mine here in Holland is also interested, but I won't see him until next week. So I'm not sure yet if I want to order it.

    Yep it will cost more to ship to holland. I don't know how much, as I would have to stop by the post office and check. If you want special shipping, like federal express, then that would cost whatever their rate charges are. I don't know what the currency conversion would be for the Euro vs. american money either. I only accept american funds. I can only fit one more person on the list. I am really sorry, but I can't fit anymore than just one person for that fabric order. Oh, and the color hasn't arrived yet, but it will be dyed to the pantone color of the Magic of Myth Zam costume in Austrailia.

    Can you tell I've never shipped overseas before? Hehe..Someone help me here.

    It shouldn't be extremely expensive to ship overseas. You can look on USPS website for overseas shipping rates and get an idea. USPS global express is usually what I do. I think it's just a bit more than going by boat and it's much much quicker.

    It really isn't too bad shipping items overseas (I lived in Germany for 5 years so I've been there and done that! )

    You'll need to fill out a US custom's form - and considering how much the fabric will cost I would get extra insurance on it.

    It's pretty much a toss-up between UPS and US AirMail though Airmail would be slightly quicker. These are probably the cheapest ways to go unless you want to go surface (4-6 weeks).

    where do you get US custom's forms--(I don't get taxed do I?) and does anyone know if there is a surcharge from your bank to exchange currency?

    Actually, Gaereil, if you have the equivalent of a cashier's check over there and send it in the form of USA currency(when the time comes, meaning don't send it yet), that would be better, cause I hope everyone's money clears the same week so that I can purchase the fabric in a speedy timeframe.

    My seamstress has February free, but March she's moving to a storefront location. Want to get in as many suits as possible during Feb.

    Here are the color matches that the dyeing company sent, that I will send to Dallas for his approval. After his approval/disapproval, I will send the approved "lettered" colored lycra to the neoprene company to laminate for the prototype.

    Customs forms are available wherever you mail from - PO or UPS. As far as getting &#36;&#36;&#36; from there to here... Oi!!!! You can do a bank transfer in US &#36;&#36;, they usually charge a percent of the amount. You might also consider an AMEX Traveler's Check as they are of course available in Europe. I would suggest talking to your bank though before starting anything, see what they suggest.

    Zam i am are you sure that is the right color, because I got the feeling that it's a little bit more pink, here, this is the pic that I've been looking at.

    That is a nice shot for reference of the over all costume. Only problem is the lighting they used when takeing the shot discolored most of the colors. Our esteemed Forum Moderator went all the way to Australia to see the actualy costume when it was on display for the Myth of the Magic tour. It was only shown at the Australia location and he took pictures of the costume and also panatones so we could match up the colors. We are positive on what the color is thanks to Dustin Crops Boy.
