Well looks like a good light wool would do nicely. A suit material would also be fine. If you really want shiny a light pleather.

Re: I am going as Yugi Muto to a Con and need help

A wife beater or Goodwill shirt you can doctor, Shoes should be easy to find, then add strips of fabric that wrap over the shoe that you can put the studs on so you dont mess them up for good. Bands and disks you may want to look for constuction tutorials on the web.

Cosplay Trunk Show

I'm a designer living near LA and it was suggested to me that I do a trunk show, a fashion show of all my costumes and clothing. I'm very cosplay based (if that wasn't obvious) and I was wondering if anyoe might know of a Cosplay/anime friendly place that might host?

A good light wool would add a classy taste but I know a lot of people use pleather or vinyl. As for patterns a slight modification to the Matrix coat (by Simplicity) or a Cosack/Preists frock would just as well.

Jas is right that's pvc you can look in JoAnns or other fabric stores for light wieght versions of that but test the strength of a small piece first. You can also try a Crepe Backed Satin, never go cheap or unlined you will want to kill yourself after working with it.
