I decided to make my very first bodysuit super difficult with a couple fun things:
* Two-way stretch appliqué onto four-way stretch pleather
* Color blocking with sharp points
* Decorative top stitching
* High, dual-layer collar
The bodysuit is made of matte milliskin in Copper and 4-way stretch matte vinyl from Spandex House (and a tiny bit of two-way stretch velour from JoAnn for the appliqué).
The sword is insulation foam (the big pink sheet kind), covered in wood glue and spray painted silver. The handle is wrapped in electrical tape. The sheath straps to the back with webbing and buckles and is made of EVA foam covered in four-way stretch matte vinyl.
