I've been planning on doing a leia cosplay for a while now and im finally getting round to it, but I have no idea which fabric to use for the senatorial gown in a new hope because I live in Scotland.

I'm sure than JoAnn fabrics don't deliver here so does anyone know any alternatives at all? Also if anyone knows a tailor who is familiar with making costumes like these in the UK please tell me as I need someone!

This has to be done for lfcc at the end of July so I'm needing all the help I can get because it's my first time.

Hey Olivia!

Why not sign up at the UK forums too, there's a heap of information in the group from people in the UK too who may have good leads on UK suppliers.

Hi Olivia! I'm in the UK as well and just got my Leia cleared. I used this fabric: http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/PLAIN-POWDER-TOUCH-POLYESTER-CREPE-DRESS-FABRIC-BY-THE-METRE-M5-Mtex-/201420779459?varId=500604118337&txnId=1522569711010
It drapes quite well, doesn't crush too easily and doesn't fray too badly. Smile
