Leather would be one of the best fabrics to wear when playing with fire! It's natural, hard to burn/ singe and looks freaken sexy!

I still prefer the minimal clothing look. But that's just me. I don't have to worry about burning embarrassing bits. Leather would get mightily hot would it not?

Rayon and Spandex become shrinkwrap too. The fun part is when the dr gets to pluck it out of your melted flesh. wink

Hmmm nice, leather may get hot, but you can wear minimal leather?!! i once saw a leather bikini, expernsive and from a snobby shop but very very cool! Team it up with a cool pair of pants and you have yourself a very sexy firetwirling outfit! Lol...i'm such a nerd...

If you go to a charity shop you can usually find a leather coat for a few quid.
This can easily be cut up and stitched/thonged to make something simple like a bikini.

I would assume this is much the same in Australia. (except it would be a few dollars)

Look for something made up of a few large panels, rather than many small ones.

I'm going to do that to make a leather hat.(not a bikini. not a pretty sight on me eek)
