Posted:Red UV fabric in particular. Seems UV red is pretty rare if existant. Anyone able to help me out?

Posted:Was also wondering if I were to soak some non-uv red fabric in some red uv paint, then wash it out, it would glow and still be fairly paintless.

Posted:i haven't searched ebay in a while, sorry i don't have more links.

home depot sells an orangey fluro red, i'm so frustrated i'm getting ready to just spray paint my non firey costume wink

i know the first link has just about every color, you just have to call them. i'm going to australia and don't have time to do all of it, but i would love to work out a trade of some kind if you were to make some fabric happen

Posted:I don't know any US suppliers, but google kite fabric.... most kite shops sell ripstop nylon in a range of UV colours, and most are willing to send you some fabric samples if you ask nicely smile

The pessimist fears this is true.

Posted:Nylon isnt quite the type of fabric Im looking for. Id like to make some pants and I think ripstop nylon is a bit too thin and lacks the flowiness Im looking for.

I did, however, see some fabric at my friend's house tonight which was a great color... Not fluoro red, but redish orange, which would be good enough. Only problem is, it wasnt solid colored fabric... It was a floral pattern and the orange was in the background. .It gave me hope though and tells me I should be able to find a similar color as a solid. Im gonna take a trip down south street and check out what they got in fabric row. Hopefully Ill find something that works.
