I forgot to mention, there are fabrics that are polyester or polyester/nylon mixes that have that shiny look but aren't vinyl. Just have to look around. =) Hope this helps!

It really depends on your budget. I'd go with a shiny pleather vinyl you can get at Joann's fabrics. It usually costs anywhere from 5.99 to 9.99 per yard though but in most Joann's they sell it on the larger rolls of fabric. You can also try this site: http://www.stretchhouse.com for awesome shiny-i...

Here is a list that might help. I run into this problem too (but for women, I dont crossplay..umm havent yet) but I usually just ignore it and cosplay whoever I like because I don't care.

But check this list out anyway, you might find something.

You can use spirit gum. It's sticky stuff that theater people use for beards and moustaches, etc. It's very very strong and also comes with an ointment that helps get it off once you are done. ANd it's safe.
