    Awesome! Thanks for the info! I'll look into it. I still have a long way to go with this costume (lots of other projects)! But I'm looking forward to moving forward a wee bit!

    Does anybody know how to get hold of the Strech houses? I sent them several emails but no reply....:-((

    It take some time but I got my wife's neoprene from them.
    I filled the form and they sent me a "catalog" (it was in fact a sampler) and then I placed the order on their site

    Bad news "I called and I am sorry to tell you the color is discontinued. The factory
    is no longer making material in that color."....

    Really bad news because their product was great.
    I haven't found another source of neoprene, good luck.
    P.S. not a long time ago there was someone selling some neoprene here in the forums, it was expensive compared to the one from stretchhouse but now that there is no option maybe you can got it from him.

    Re: Where to get Neoprene?

    I'm desperately searching for a Zam neoprene, I've got a lot of stuff prepared to make the costume, but it gets slowed down by the problem of where to find the neoprene. It is impossible to get something here in Czech Republic, and I also checked some other options but still nothing. Any ideas, or help?

    I don't know if TheStretchHouse will ship overseas or not - but it can't hurt to ask. They have one color on their neoprene page (#4) which is REALLY close to the original Zam color Neoprene - even though it does NOT have the same sheen as the original fabric.

    I've seen costumes made with this fabric and they look really good...

    However, another poster on this forum states that they no longer sell the fabric (but it is still up on their website). So I don't know what the story is. You can try ordering, worst they can say is they don't have it.

    Re: Where to get Neoprene?

    Hi hi! I've been plannin on my Zam for my wedding but gosh! I felt so overwhlemed by the amount of work required that i seriously do not know where to begin. Nevertheless, I am going to do it still. So i thought i'll start with the body suit first. Everytime i tried to access Stretch House to purchase the material, i can get past the 'buy not' stage. Think mthe website might be down.

    Anyone had any idea of another alternative source? What about the thickness of the material? I see there are several thickness... from 0.5mm - 3mm. How do i choose?

    Any help is deeple appreciated!!
