I intended to do her outfit from the first game, but fell in love with her outfit in the second. I needed some help on some parts of the costume and was wondering if anyone would be willing to bestow me with some advice

For her dress, i see that it's layered with what appears to be box pleats

I'm not sure what kind of fabric would be best; i've been eyeing stretch fabrics, but wasn't sure how well the pleats would take to that

Then there's the wig. If anyone had any suggestions on to what kind of base wig i could style, it would help an enormous amount.

She's got a harness that she's using for her katana, and while I figured that it was leather in the game, i don't have that kind of money and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to how I could construct that so it would be durable but not too costly.

Other things were just the cord on her katana sheath. I know that it's a sageo, but does anyone have any suggestions as to what i could use instead of buying a legitimate sageo cord?

If anyone can help out in any way, shape, or form it would be extremely appreciated!
