Luka Megurine default costume help

I have so many questions with Luka's default costume

Here's her photo

1. Any recommendation for what cloth should I use (the black and gold part on her skirt and vest)
2. What kind of cloth can I also use to make this black transparent inner shirt she has?
3. What kind of paint can I use to tattoo the number on my shoulder?
4. What kind of paint can I use to make her arm warmer details?
5. How can I make her belt? Any tutorial for belt that has many triangles?
6. Can I use craft foam to make her brass thingy on her chest?
7. Can boot cover work with the boots that she is wearing?

I'd appreciate more tutorials and tips regarding her costume. This is my dream cosplay and I really want to make it happen. Please help me. Thank you!

1. I'm not too good with fabric, but something that's lightweight and has good drape is best. Maybe some thin artificial suede fabric or something. XD
2. Maybe organza, tiny mesh, or lightweight chiffon.
3. Not totally sure, but I used acrylic paint for a friend's Len cosplay because I just had it around the house.
4. I guess there is no wrong way of what paint to use. As long as you get good results. XD I guess acrylic again, or if you can, use some markers.
5. Well, I guess just take a brown belt and painting gold triangles on it is fine for Luka.
6. I guess you can, but I'd recommend making the foam into tubes and twisting it rather than just layering flat pieces on top of each other.
7. Yeah, boot covers can work for almost every shoe if you do it the right way. It just might be weird trying to make the boots look like tied shoes.

Hope I helped and good luck on your dream cosplay! <333

1. Any recommendation for what cloth should I use (the black and gold part on her skirt and vest)
--Twill would be good. A simple cotton is fine. Heck even vinyl works..I've seen all sorts work for this. You just have to know how to use what you are making it with..Like if you have never sewn vinyl, then go for a cotton..For the gold, get gold bias tape. You can also make the chest design with gold rope. That's what my friend did for hers.

2. What kind of cloth can I also use to make this black transparent inner shirt she has?
--Not sure why that reference HAS that..Is this a newer version or something? Because her in this outfit I've never seen any with that under part..If this is a new version then I understand, and you could use a thin mesh or like mentioned, organza.
However, if you are not sure if this is a new version, maybe check all of her defaults (usually called version 1 through whatever, like Miku V2 or Miku V3 (versions 2 and 3) and see if it actually comes up..Because I know the original in the exact outfit does not have that, and this looks like a fanart anyway..

3. What kind of paint can I use to tattoo the number on my shoulder?
--This is totally up to you..You can do Henna, sharpie, or any other method of drawing on yourself..You COULD use body paint, but I don't know anything about that..I use sharpies..

4. What kind of paint can I use to make her arm warmer details?
--Depends. If you use vinyl like my friend did, she used vinyl paints..If you use normal fabric, use fabric paints..

5. How can I make her belt? Any tutorial for belt that has many triangles?
--Paint. This is literally the only way outside of hand making a belt..Use belts in one of the 2 colors (my friend had brownish black belts) then use paint in the other color and paint it.

6. Can I use craft foam to make her brass thingy on her chest?
--I covered this above, but if you want, yea. Just cut out a picture of it on foam.

7. Can boot cover work with the boots that she is wearing?
Yes they can.
These:

and these:

Are made over heels.
You should use gold fabric, and maybe something thick..Maybe vinyl..
I used this tutorial:
http://crashcult.blogspot.com/2010/1...-tutorial.html
Then instead of the fabric going under the foot where you will be stepping on it, I just hot glue it to the sides above the sole. Then you just make the holes, preferably using a grommet punch with the 2 sided grommets (sometimes called eyelets) and make those your lace holes.
