Our Yaya Han Holographic Scales material was such a huge hit from the initial collection that we knew we had to build on it for our fall lineup. So what could we do to make Holographic Scales bigger and better? Why… make it bigger and better, of course!
The new Mermaid Oil Slick material from the Yaya Han Cosplay Fabric Collection features a larger scale pattern than the original Holographic Scales. And, instead of a holographic background, the fabric’s base color is a beautiful iridescent coating. The color changes depending on the direction of light hitting it, giving it a “see it to believe it” oil slick-like quality. The effect is truly magical, making it perfect for everything from mermaids to dragons, and everything in-between.
Mermaid Oil Slick is a thin but durable 4-way stretch material, making it a great choice for cosplay applications. As with many of our stretch fabrics in the Yaya Han Collection, we met Yaya’s request to develop materials that were both thin and durable, making them easy to work with and comfortable to wear, yet durable enough to withstand the rigors of cosplay.
The Yaya Han Collection Mermaid Oil Slick is 95% Polyester and 5% Spandex and has a 185 GSM. The fabric is 58” wide. We recommend hand washing in cold water with only non-chlorine bleach. Line dry and do not iron. Gentle steaming is fine, but always test carefully in a small area.
Be sure to check out our 4-way Stretch Oil Slick material for a perfect coordinating fabric.
Our Mermaid Oil Slick fabric, as well as all the items in the Yaya Han Collection, are available in the United States from Jo-Ann Stores and on their website!
