Alright, I so feel the urge to make a Sakura costume... I decided it would be this one (see attached pictures) Not too hard but I want to be as accurate as possible. I already bought a wig off cosworx.com and im gonna style it. I have a good idea on how I'm gonna make every part, so that's not a problem. The thing is...I'm REALLY not familiar with kinds of fabrics. I'd like to have opinions on what fabrics I should use

-for the cape: so that's its not too heavy (and it will have two layers -> pink/hotpink-red)

-for the bodysuit: stretch or not? And how on earth do we sew stretch fabric =_=

-for the socks: it seems like a knit fabric...is it a good idea? And I have this problem about their color, are they dark purple or a kind of mixture of purple and blue, or just dark blue, because in my references, the three of them are there... And I found this and was wondering which one would be better:

That's about it
If you have any suggestions on anything else about this costume, don't hesitate
Thanks in advance!
