    I did do the stovetop method and it helped get the dye to set better, but despite the over zealous amount of black dye i used, the black still is not near as black as it should be....gonna just have to make the outfit

    I'm sorry, I don't know what else to suggest. Sometimes synthetic fabrics are just too resistant and you can only tint them.

    I'll bet you can find a pair of 1/6-scale black leggings or tights that would still fit the figure.

    no worries bro - it did cook the color in...very little rinsed out afterwards.
    if i did it 2 or 3 more times it would probably take, but I ain't got no time for that lol

    whelp, productive day with the help of The Boy. He sewed me some pants and those arm sleeve thingies.
    Used my vinyl cutter to make his boot covers and stars.
