Soul Calibur 4 cosplay help!!

I'm in the process of making a Cassandra costume for Otakon this year. (Here's a few reference pics for those of you who don't know exactly what she looks like.)

A few things I need help on:

- I am terrible at picking out fabric choices. What sort of fabric do you guys think I should use for the indigo colored jacket and/or the collar/cravat... thing? I was thinking maybe a satin, or something shiny?
- Those boots!!! WHERE CAN I FIND THIGH HIGH FLAT HEELED BOOTS?!?! I've looked EVERYWHERE. If no one has any ideas, can someone link an easy tutorial for making boot covers? I'm a TOTAL beginner seamstress, so the simpler, the better.

Any help is INCREDIBLY appreciated!!! Thanks guys!!

Yeaah...I would suggest boot covers hehe...I can't help you there, but hopefully somebody can.

As for the fabric, I would use a low-sheen satin, usually called "Duchesse Satin" or "Lamour Satin"; most specifically "Casa Satin" from Joann Fabric has a lovely drape, medium weight, and low, but subtle sheen. It is also usually available on sale for 40-50% off either with a coupon or just during a sale. It also comes in a good selection of colors.

Not to discourage you, but for a beginner seamstress this is an incredibly ambitious project because it is so unique. You are going to have to draft your own or extremely alter a pattern. Good luck!
