off the material? Because there's really no way to get the fabric to
'flow' around the characters the way water would...
In terms of materials, I'd look at some of the mylar-treated spandex
options that are out there, possibly using them with a colored mesh of
some sort over the top to filter or tone down the reflectivity of the
mylar. This time of year is good to look for those options, I know
JoAnns carries them for Halloween but I don't generally see them any
other time of year.
