Others can probably help on picking out fabrics for you. However there is really no "accurate" fabric for any cosplay. (Unless you know.. in the anime they magically tell you.) You just kind of have to go on your own judgement. If the clothes aren't shiny, maybe you should avoid shiny satin. And if it's sparkly, you shouldn't pick up any matte fabrics unless you want to add glitter to it.

Quoting Kelley here, you need reference pics. Go to the store, ask the staff on what's the best option. Also, keep in mind how much you want to pay. Sometimes you can find a fabric that is not technically right but will work because the color is spot-on.
