Hello there!!
I've had this costume in mind for quite some time now, but the one thing that has always held me back from starting to work on it is the coat fabric. I've been reading around the internet that it's been completely out of stock for a while now and there's no way to find a close match. To be fair, that velvet with that design is really really particular.
Wanted to check in with you guys to see if anybody has any suggestions, or knows how/where to get it.
Thanks, as always

There is someone in Sunrider base that knows where to get it in a shop in California. I'll check with her if it is in stock now.

This is a gorgeous costume. I hope you can find the fabric!

Ohh!! Yes, thanks! That would be awesome.
I'll be in NYC next week - might go see if there's something down in the fashion district

It's always in stock, haha. I may be taking a trip there next weekend if you want me to grab some for you; it's quite affordable.

In that case I know someone interested in it, too. Smile I'll write her and ask if I should procure some for her.

My cousin was making this dress for me and made a total mess of it Sad I had given up on it because I thought the fabric wasn't available anymore. If it is available then I would definitely like to buy some as well so that I can get someone to make it properly for me Very Happy I have my headpiece ready to go but the dress can't be saved. I seriously cried when I found that out because I was so looking forward to this dress! lol

I would *love* to get in on this if someone is willing to buy and ship the fabric to me! I can PayPal the money for the fabric and pay for shipping.

And if someone is willing to share the name of the shop, that would be helpful too.

Did anyone ever find out if this fabric is still available? I have wanted to do this costume for a few years and would LOVE to find some myself...

The fabric IS still available as of three weeks ago. I went with Lisa when she checked in on its availability. I believe he quoted around $7 a yard? Not positive though so please don't quote me on it.
