Hey all!

I'm highly considering swapping out Ghirahim for Impa for my SS cosplay group.

The only thing is I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to sewing, and I'm both unsure of what kind of fabric to use for this costume, what kind of process should I use for the pattern on the fabric (two separate fabrics sewn on? fabric tape? paint?) as well as I have NO idea what actual pattern to use for the top and poofy pants which I kind of want to make as one body suit.

All help will be super appreciated!

Here's like, the best reference picture of any character in existence:

Edit: My bad! I'll be moving this to the sewing forum!

You may have better luck posting in the "Sewing" or "General Construction" forums.
