I wanted a stretch material that would react brilliantly under lights, but not all Metallic Spandex is equal. Over the years I’ve dealt with a fair amount of Metallic Spandex that would easily delaminate or crack when stretched. When I received my Cosplay by Yaya Han Metallic Spandex in Black, Gold, and Green the first thing I checked was if this material would flake or peel. It passed the test like a pro!
So, here’s the end result (with some fake FIRE for good measure!)
I went into a local Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts and was bowled over by the new Cosplay by Yaya Han collection. I hope the fabric line will continue to expand into more colors and materials. (I can never have enough stretch cotton sateen in my life, just sayin'.) Grab a coupon, and check out the new threads for yourself! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Big thanks to CosplayFabrics.com & Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores for sponsoring this project and a shout out to Yaya Han for her efforts to make cosplay more accessible in the US!
