This is really cool! What do you use to keep the edges of the sleeve from sliding?

Thanks! For this cosplay :iconnobodyyyyy: had arm bands with elastics in them. It was convenient because the nylon 'second skin' was held in place by being held underneath the arm bands. If the sleeve doesn't go past your elbow, then it will stay in place on its own, but if it does go past your elbow, you'll need a creative solution to keep it in place. Maybe you could add an elastic to the edge of the sleeve, even. Here is a picture of the 'second skin' and the arm bands I was talking about.

Thank you!!! This was really helpful! I was thinking of just having the arm sleeves stop at the wrist. I'll use bracelets to hide the edges.
Can I ask what did you use to dye the nylon black?

It's just a nylon stocking! Sewed into a glove, or a sleeve. It's removable, skin colored, you can paint on it, or add whatever you wish to it!

Ooooo, do you have any examples of this technique in action? The picture you've supplied here is quite small, and I'd like to get a better grasp of the technique.
