I want to get started on my Commander Mars costume, however I am fairly new at cosplay and this will be by far the most complicated costume I've done.

I've heard so many people say things like, "Find a pattern that's similar and alter it." Now, I'm not a master seamstress or anything but I might be able to alter something slightly... but I don't know how to go about finding anything like this! It's a... hoop miniskirt?

For the bottom, I was thinking I could just wear leggings and perhaps find a pair of boots that would suffice, so I'm mostly just worried about that dress piece. It is very strange.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks for your help!
