    I received my order from Jabbadashery. It's amazing! and the colour is not so pink, it's a beautiful and a little dark purple. Now, to try a similar colour for the vest and the other parts.

    Just to show how people can see colors differently, I got mine in today and it looks grey-purple, or maybe even a heather color. My husband even thought that the purple color they were going for was more of a gunmetal-purple. Which, if you think about it, would look to be a well worn outfit/armor. and probably never washed either. Fictional Zam must have smelled pretty bad. LOL!

    Tell you one thing, I kinda wished they had gone with that deep blue color on the inside of the neoprene. It's rich and vibrant without being cold, for the color of blue.

    The smell... mmm... and this fabric canīt be washed with water... We'll be so close to the original Zam!

    Seriously, the fabric is bonded with glue and washing can separate it. I will try a small piece handwashing to experiment (a very small little piece). If it doesn't work, professional clean, of course.

    Oh lord, haha. I emailed Jabbadashery, and they suggested two meters; three if I wanted the extra wiggle room.

    My suit is a two piece. I 'cheated' and only used the fabric in the places you'd actually see it. I made shoulders, arms and pants. I sewed the shoulders to a sweat wicking undershirt. I have to admit, I'm nervous about cutting and sewing the fabric. I bought 3 yards and it is too much. I will have a lot of fabric left over.

    Yes, Sirene, but you have more if something dire happens. Like a rip or something.

    I haven't purchased fabric yet. Thinking of just going with two meters worth. Budget is a factor, here.

    If you're ordering from the Jabbadashery, it's quite wide. That's what I didn't take in to account when I ordered my fabric. I have enough for two suits, but then again, I only make leggings and 'sleevings'. And good point about having extra in case of accident or emergency.

    So, I finished the suit today. I must say, the leggings can stand on their own lol!

    I'm quite happy the way it turned out. I managed to find a sweat wicking long sleeve shirt to sew the arms to. Put final touches on the leggings by sewing a hook for the 'knife' greeblie and four buttons for the suspenders. No zipper since the neoprene stretches.

    I'll be wearing it this weekend in Ottawa. I'll post some pics.

    Hi Mike here is the picture of this neoprene . The neoprene has a lighter color than you see in the photo. It looks darker for the light to take the picture.

    Regards.

    Mike, I have a bunch of images I need to upload to photobucket soon, I'll snap a picture of my neoprene too. I'll post a link to PB soon.

    Sirene, a hook for the knife holder? I never thought of that. Hmm....

    From my mobile phone. The first pic is the neoprene on the left and my old bodysuit on the right for color comparison. The second pic is the final button I sewed on for the suspenders. Click image for larger version.

    Wow awesome job guys! Thanks for the heads up on how wide the fabric is, it helps my wallet a lot. You guys are both motivating me and making me realize how much of a slacker I am all at the same time!

    That looks so great!! I have so many questions on where you got stuff! The toe spikes, shin guards, hand guards, gauntlets, chest plate, helmet--oh lord, I have hardly anything!

    From the picture I'd say that all parts are from MonCal.
