I'm still fairly new to sewing, but I would like to try and make a costume of Rouge from the original 1990's cartoon and need help picking out appropriate fabrics and materials.

I've imaged the suit being a stretch shiny material, and I have no idea on where to begin for her boots, gloves, or belt.

Here's a picture of what I'm shooting for:

Thanks!  Grin

You could probably use craft foam for her boots and her belt, as well as her shoulder armor/pads.  For the gloves, I'd start with a well-fitting pair of gloves and attach a new cuff to them.

Here's a great tutorial for making craft foam armor  (I know her stuff isn't strictly "armor" but it still applies): http://www.entropyhouse.com/penwiper/costumes/helmsdeep.html

Ludi- Ohhh! I think I'm going to like that stretchy website! That's extremely useful.

Aislynn- I really like that site! Now I have more costume ideas to drool over.

Thanks!
