Hi All!

I have the Geonosis battle arena Padme costume - the soft parts are from Clothears, but I did not buy it directly from them.

My question is does anyone know how I can safely wash my shirt and pants without them shrinking? Razz I have no idea what fabric they are made out of, but I know that some of you have the same costume from the same company so I wanted to see what you do.

Thanks in advance! Smile

Hopefully it has been pre washed before construction, but I have never bought anything from the company, so no idea. XD

Otherwise you should be able to wash it on cold (30 degrees celsius) without shrinking. It's probably a cotton/poly blend, or that would be my guess.

If you hang it to dry, I think that can also help, as opposed to machine drying.

You could ask Clothears if, and how, the costume can be washed or if it has to be dry cleaned.
