Subject: [TheCostumersManifesto] Has anyone made a quickchange lycra
I'm about to make a copy of the traditional Superman costume (as worn
by Christopher Reeve).
Normally I would make this in two parts: a upper body leotard that
fastens under the crotch to keep the top section smooth, then a pair
of matching tights with elastic in the waist. I would hide the join
between the two sections by the little red trunks that Superman wears
over the top.
HOWEVER....this has to be a quick change, so I'm considering putting
a heavy duty zip down the back, and maybe cutting the whole thing as
one garment, sort of like a full body leotard.
I'm nervous about two things. Firstly, is putting a zip into lycra a
total nightmare....and secondly, do you think the garment would sit
well if it's all cut as one, or will it wrinkle up and look terrible?
any help or suggestions greatly welcomed!!!
