The tights you will have to dye to get the color close to what was used.
We have some fabric being manufactured now in the right color but it's still weeks away.

A stretch-woven satin fabric or a knitted stretch satin/Moleskin spandex/Jumbo spandex is what you need to use for the blue parts of the costume except the cape which is a regular satin fabric.

There is no one place to find any of these. You will have to get samples from online or local fabric stores to find the color and finish you prefer.
Several leads are in this thread.... :)

After reading this post I'm a little confused on what type of material that I need for the gloves and for the cape.I usually get my material from SpandexWorld or SpandexHouse and I usually get samples from them.I need my gloves and cape made and it's going to be hard to have them made because of my disability in my hands.I'm on a fixed income from social security and I want to make sure that I get the right type of material and color for the samples so that I don't waste my money on the wrong type.Please let me know what type and color that I should be looking for when I order the samples.Thanks for any help that I get so that I can get this much closer to a finished costume.

The cape is simply a non-stretch satin fabric. The gloves as I said before can be out of stretch-woven satin fabric or a knitted stretch satin/Moleskin spandex/Jumbo spandex.

Unfortunately, everyone sees color differently and the quality and cost of fabrics are all over the place.

There is no "One stop shop" if you are looking to build your own costume.

The closest thing to match colors to is our fabric swatches and pattern set.
