Lavaliers and clothing sound

Hi guys,

Ive read a lot and watched a bunch of youtube videos telling people to use moleskin to avoid getting noise from the actor's clothes, but I cannot find anything similar here in Brazil. What else can I do to avoid getting noise from the actor's clothes when they move? Should I wrap the mics' sides with medical tape? Should I use the mics' windscreen? I have no idea...

Any drug store/pharmacy would likely have it in the foot care section.. even in Brazil. Possible they don't call it 'Moleskin' though. Basically it's soft padded felt with a sticky backing.

Re: Lavaliers and clothing sound

Lots of people sell it on eBay... just search for "moleskin roll" or "moleskin padding" (without quotes).

Buy a roll, then take it around to your local pharmacies, health supply stores, shoe stores, running stores, etc., and see if they have a similar product.

Worst case, you might have to buy it online forever, but you can easily get 2" x 180" for $10 USD... and you can tape a lot of mics with a 180" roll.

Some wrap the mic with a small piece of silk cloth obtained from a fabric shop. Not sure how the silk is held in place though - perhaps with tape.
