Seems JoAnn Fabric no longer sells crepe back satin in Navy Blue? At least not online...

Where are most people buying the material for cape/trunks/gloves these days?

You might look for it at Hancock Fabrics, a.k.a. Fabric Warehouse. I don't know where You live, but You might wish to P.M. Chuck Williams on this board and ask him.

Good Luck and Cheers,
Larry

You are Welcome! Another place that You might look, if You have them is "Hobby Lobby". They ususally have a lot of Good Fabrics.

Cheers,

Hi all!

I'm new here, but I am in the beginning process of putting together a suit of my own.

FWIW and if folks are open to a suggestion, I Googled "navy blue medium weight bridal satin" based on Lynne Williams' suggestion outlined in dreddbatfan's post above and I came across this:

http://onthegolinens.com/navyblue-brida ... ablecloths

You can order them in "round" which could make the cape that much easier to assemble plus, based on the measurements you'd probably have leftover material for the trunks, cowl, gloves/gauntlets or whatever else you still need.

I haven't pulled the trigger on this yet, but I will report back on how it goes if/when I do.
You could go for this version.
:D

Hello all! First post. I contacted the glove maker, the shoe maker and Chuck Williams. Still waiting to hear back on 2 of them. As of now I only have the Matty cowl and belt as my starting points. I do plan to upgrade. I saw somewhere a mention of a downloadable file for the chest logo to go have printed on card stock and use double stick carpet tape to adhere to the suit. I'm new so I don't know where to locate the file. Thanks in advance. Theirs so much info here. Ive been reading for 2 days.

Hello, I.F.
Yep, there's a lot to read here. I can't write for long as there is a storm headed towards Fairborn and I need to get off before it hits. Unless someone on the board can find it for You, it just takes time. You might use the search function at the top of the board.

Cheerts,
Larry

The chest logo was always available here on the board. If you do a quick search, you should be able to find it. I will see if I can find the link for you, or I am sure Scott or Ben has the link. I glued mine to .010 styrene available at any well stocked hobby shop, then used double sided carpet tape to hold it to the tunic.
