It's a non-stretch polished cotton. I found it in a bigass pile of furnishing fabrics out in Lower Hutt, it wasn't labelled but looks for all the world like cotton sateen! Just not stretch, and slightly lighter weight :)

@Static Thank you Very Happy I love the stuff, it's just so crazy and cool. Most of the time I'm filling stuff with it that doesn't really need to be just because I can

Sculpting for the day complete - I am out of clay and also patience! I started my DK pauldrons, which will be moulded and cast in plastic further down the line. Photoooos...
Spoiler:
 

Hahaha, I haven't worked with clay since I was five and it is so hard. Ohgod. AND I USED 2KG ON THAT. I need to smooth all the lumps and bumps out of it, but I may also have mis-judged the moulding aspect...I'll have to rethink that later, but for now, I'm kinda pleased with it! Very Happy Sculpting tips, anyone?

Nah - there's a form under it made of newspaper and duct tape, lol. That's not solid clay under there, I knew it woulda chewed up way more clay than I wanted! I just ran out anyway. Neutral It's about a 1cm layer over it, and then the other layers on top.

I bought fabric for Kiki! It is dark blue instead of dark purple .___.
I really need to stop buying impulse fabric and wait until I have reference pictures with me.

I also have money now so I can buy cosplay materials! That is super progress!

Woo~ Just finished my Visual Kei!Meiko Jacket, I want to make some straps come off it to I think, But I'm using $15 a metre fabric so I wanna be careful with that.

Nearly finished the skirt, But the waistband is going to actually be a belt... need to sew the belt on when i get home.

I should start the legwarmers too 8D nearly done!

Rip stop refers the to the weave :) It's woven with a checkered effect to add extra strength. You need to know what the fibre content is :) If nylon- yes. If Polyester- then it'll be hard and more a case of toning over the top than dyeing.
