    Hello everyone!

    I am new to the replica costume making world and I need some suggestions. Me being the awesome girlfriend that I am, wants to make the kamen rider decade outfit for my boyfriend as seen below:

    I have the pepakura files of the entire armor which I feel I can pull off. I just don't know what materials I should use for what goes under the armor. I was thinking of buying black and pink spandex and sowing them together, but I would really like to give it that official by having leather. The problem is I am not experienced at sowing, my mother is and I don't really want to put her through all that work.

    Do you guys have any suggestions on what material or tricks I can use for the outfit under the armor. I also would like some suggestion of how to make the eyes.

    Thank you to whoever response back .

    There is a shiny spandex/lycra out there that looks very much like leather. You should be able to order it from any online supplier such as spandex world. Try to order swatches of fabric first to make sure you are getting the right finish and colour.
