In case you'd like to order any of my designs in different colors/sizes, please don't hesitate to send me a message!
I'm also available for custom work and open to ideas - and I have a Cafepress store for my designs too!
I can see that you ordered the design printed on Kona cotton. As you can see pretty well on my "how Spoonflower prints colors" page which is linked in the fabric description above as well as on Spoonflower's own fabric types page, the natural colors - cotton, linen, silk - do not print vibrant colors too well; however the polyester fabrics do. So there are basically miles between the cotton print versus the polyester print in terms of colors.
Looking forward to see the finished costume! :-)
I was so excited to get my fabric today so I can start my Effie Halloween costume! I was pretty disappointed that the color wasn't nearly as vibrant as it looked online but the soft feel of the fabric is nice & it was the closest I could find to what would match the 1000 hand painted feathers Effie's dress was made out of. I have decided not to prewash which goes against my type A personality but as a Halloween costume I won't be wearing it constantly and am not using any other fabric besides interfacing. I will post pictures when it's completed! Wish me luck I want to win the contests!
Spoonflower prints on several kinds of fabrics, all of which can be selected with the dropdown field "Choose a fabric". They are all listed on this help page: http://help.spoonflower.com/customer/portal/articles/998436-what-can-i-buy-at-spoonflower- but none of them contains spandex, sorry. I think the best option may be the performance knit; of which I would suggest to get a swatch.
For your mermaid scales-aqua fabric I need to know what type of fabric this is....I am looking for something with spandex in it. I was going to order the basic combed cotton but need to know if this is 100% cotton? It will be used for a mermaid Halloween costume that I need to be fitted to well. Does any of your fabric contain spandex and if so which one and what is the percentage? I need something with at least 10% spandex. Thanks.
