I'm working on my halloween costume. I'm gonna be a generic looking super hero without looking like a mexican wrestler.
The fabric of my costume is going to need to be died dark blue. I don't know how to dye even the simplest of fabrics, and these ones i'm looking at are spandex/polyester/who knows what.
If anyone can give me advice or point me in the right direction let me know.
Here are the two possible tops that I'm looking at. They're football shirts, for wearing under your pads, but I'll be wanting to dye the white parts dark blue or blue and wearing them on the outside, possibly with a cape.
Nike Store. Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong Compression Four-Pad Men's Football Shirt
Fabric: Body/pad back fabric: Dri-FIT 84% polyester/16% spandex. Mesh: Dri-FIT 90% polyester/10% spandex. Pad top fabric: 100% polyester. Pad: 55% polyethylene/45% ethylene vinyl acetate.
Nike Store. Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong 5-Pad Men's Shirt
Fabric: Body: Dri-FIT 93% polyester/7% spandex. Padding: 100% ethylene vinyl acetate foam.
I'm leaning toward the second one.. but it'll be neither unless I can dye them a solid color.
If anyone has any other good source for a found item that could be used as a super hero costume I'd be happy to check that out too. Even though I want a generic super hero look, I want it to be cool looking.
