Phoenix (X-Men) Bodysuit Fabric?

Hello! I am planning to cosplay as Phoenix from X-Men. I already bought my pattern (the oh so ordinary Kwik Sew 3052 unitard pattern) and now I am deciding on which fabric to buy. I am deciding to buy online. I have found two fabrics that I like, but I am very confused on which to get.

1) http://spandexworld.com/c3/catalog/product/2636

2) http://spandexworld.com/c3/catalog/product/9021

I am mainly confused about the differences between these two fabrics. Which is shinier? Which is thicker? Which is stretchier? And, for those who know Phoenix (if not, here is a reference picture http://thecarouselpodcast.files.word..._vol_1_101.jpg) which is the best match for the colour? Overall, which do you all think would be better? I would really really like answers to these questions, as I'm very confused!

This one is probably the better of the two
http://spandexworld.com/c3/catalog/product/9021

If you scroll down they both have "additional info" sections. This one stretches in two directions (a plus in full body suits), has a bit more stretch (5% more spandex). Maybe not as bright as the other, but the other plus' are there.

This ones comparable if you want a bright green http://spandexworld.com/c3/catalog/product/2611

This is another 4-way stretch that would be good for her gloves, boots, and matching sash

Thanks for replying!! I think I will probably get that one. Do you know how many yards of each fabric I should need? Each as in the green and the gold. I was thinking 2 for green and 1 for gold? Would that be too little?
