Hello Master costume makers.
I was wondering if anyone had any type of advice on what material to use to make flexible costume parts. Namely, the shorts that C-3po wears in the movies after ANH. The original costume shorts were vac-formed ABS or something to that nature. They were changed to a rigid, yet flexible material for the subsequent films. I was researching Dragon Skin as a possibility. How well does it hold up? Will it breakdown over time? Also, there is the plating, Chroming process to consider. Will Dragonskin take the spray-chome? Thoughts and advice are greatly appreciated. The 3po buliders will appreciate this immensely.
