So I ran into a little snag.. currently working on the head portion of my costume and the fabric I planned on using for the area where I can see is too thin, but when I stack it multiple times it becomes harder to see out of.

I'm looking for any good ideas for a fabric that is thick and hard to see out of on one side and easy to see out of on the other. I also looked it up online quite a bit and a lot of people's answer has been a super mesh or Scrim fabric.

Please help! It'd be much appreciated! <3

Seconding the mesh. It would also allow for breathability. That fur -has- to be a billion degrees in there! Is this for Chopper?

Please do! If possible, something recommended for stage actors. I'd rather not see Doc Chop be hauled off by the EMT's!
