This question is for anyone who has cosplayed as Miku Hatsune from Vocaloid, or who plan to, like me...

I'm in the process of getting fabric for the mini skirt and sleeves, and I need a little advice. First of all, is pleather (vinyl) a good fabric to work with? The skirt and sleeves definitely LOOK like pleather, but it's a very expensive fabric ($10-20 per yard) and I've never worked with it before.
Secondly, how much fabric should I use? Based on this awesome pleated skirt tutorial I found ( http://www.instructables.com/id/Harr...r-House-Skirt/
) I calculated that I need at most 3 yards of fabric for the skirt (I always buy more to be on the safe side, since I live on an island and have to take a 2.5 hour trip to get to the nearest Jo Ann Fabrics). I just guessed that I might need two yards tops of fabric for the sleeves. But if other people know how much they used, please let me know! Saving money is always good :3
If you have any other advice to give, that would also be welcome. Thank you very much!
