    i saw a really olf thread on this but the pics were no longer visible. i want to make the orange suspender leeloo costume, i think im good on the pants and shirt, but i'd like to get some opinions from you guys on how to make the orange suspenders and modify/ make the boots.
    in the old thread it was suggested to use silicone elastic but i may not be skilled enough for that yet, is it difficult to work with? someone also mentioned yogamats, but that it doesnt look good up close?
    also mentioned we're some tutorials, if those are available i'd love to read them.
    thanks in advance..

    her suspenders look great.
    thanks for the welcome, i actually joined a little bit back, but i almost never have time to keep up with the threads and i'll admit im a little intimidated by the quality of everyones work since im such a novice.
    i do use the boards for reseach purposes when i start a new costume though.
    ya'll are great resources for all kinds of stuff.
    thanks again...

    I may have some interesting pictures to post in the next month or two. They would make for great reference.

    I would PERSONALLY like to see the Band-Aid Leelo costume ;)

    Seriously, though, those suspenders look kinda cool.

    This outfit is a grail for me, and fait accompli thanks to Matt.
    Kim and Cris did a fantastic job of theirs, and are the best example to follow.
    We are nearly finished our suspenders now, and will complete the outfit when
    they're done.

    I have a connection to the individual who made the originals, and their biggest problem
    was trying to ensure that the holes would not distort when stretched, so they were all made elongated against the stretch regions. Jean Paul Gaultier in space, amazing.

    i will definately post WIP pics and i would love any advice or tips from anyone willing to share.

    here's a link to a friend of mine who did the bandaid version for Mega this year, she really didnt spend much time on it though cause i know she can do better (plus she's slouching in this pic).

    Just a couple more weeks before we've got something to show.
    I will be sure to post images of the finished piece, and I will have a page
    dedicated at the site.

    And even more when Matt and I get together next, right?
