So my friend and I are going to Salem, MA in October, the weekend before Halloween and we definitely want to dress up and hit some parties and festivals!! She really wants to go as a female Chucky, and I think I want to go as female Freddy Krueger.

I've seen pictures online of the female version of the costume, it's basically a sweater dress with claw marks in the front, fedora hat, claw glove, and boots. I'm in the habit of making my own cosplays (my finished works are Sakura Kasugano from Street Fighter, and an Assassin's Creed Gunner Yuna from FFX2), and I feel like it might be cheaper to make my own Freddy costume instead of buying the full set on ebay...

The only things I might buy are the hat, boots, and the glove, but I'm having trouble finding the right red/green striped fabric. Any suggestions of websites you think might sell the fabric? Here's a picture for reference:

The stripes are wide enough that you could buy red and green fabric, cut it into strips, and sew it together. Use a stretch stitch!
