I know the odds are very slim, but I wanted to put a feeler out there for interest in this. I'm considering trying to do a small run of neoprene sheets with the 'britex' lycra laminated to it. I'm looking at using 1mm perforated neoprene to keep it thin, breathable and stretchy.
See a photo of my swatch here: http://kay-dee.net/costumes/zam_wess...tex_swatch.jpg
Because it would be a small run, the prices are higher per person. It would be just over 400 dollars for people to get 3 sheets (each sheet is roughly 2.25 yards long, 50" wide). I have no idea how much shipping from overseas, then shipping to individuals will add to that price.
I also have to see how much of this lycra is actually left at Britex. For all I know it is gone now.
I guess I just figured if there were one or two people who held out on the last run (again - I know it is not likely because it was like pulling teeth for ZamIAm to get people together for that run) that it might effect my decision to get more neoprene made.
And please understand, this is in no way meant to be disrespectful of all the work ZamIAm has done for the custom neoprene orders. I just have this crazy costume bug inside of me. When I think I might have found 'the' fabric I get all kinds of crazy ideas and desires. And heck, I don't even know if it is 'the' fabric! It's just so darn close, and knowing that Trisha Biggar got fabric in San Francisco shopping excursions just makes me go nutty.
Some people collect Star Wars toys, I get all crazy about Star Wars fabric
