Help with a Balmung cosplay :3

Well, I've been trying to decide on a .Hack// character to cosplay, and I finally chose Balmung. So I decided that I wanted to do his outfit from the "Login 10 The Players Are Thinking" chapter. So I was wondering just how to go about this project. :P

I was thinking of using either black cotton cloth or pleather (since it looks kind of shiny), but any suggestions would be great! And I don't know if I should use real (or fake) white feathers for the necklaces, or just sculpy. C: Any help would be great. <3

Specifically: What to make the boa from? / What to make the pants and shirt from? / What to use for the necklaces? / Anything else important you can think of about the costume?

Thank you in advance! <33 (PS: The clothes are black, not white, on the outfit ~)

EDIT: Also, I couldn't find any ref. pictures showing what sort of shoes he wears with this outfit (since it only appears on one page), so any suggestions? Combat boots, mabye? :P

Picture of outfit:

Meet me at Ohayocon 2012!
"Damage done to the evil shaped one, too massive to compare.
Balmung of the Azure Sky, Orca of the Azure Sea, together they gallop at full speed.
In the depth of my bosom, your names shall remain.
You are none other than the descendants of Fianna.
Together with the warrior who wears the eyes of the stars"
— W.B. Yeats —

I am also doing the same outfit. What I'm going to do is use a pair of Pleather pants which were leftover from something else, a plain cotton/nylon trutleneck for, found costume jewlery for the rings and bracelets, Feather boa from the halloween store, knee high black boots with fluffy trim, and I am adding a pair of small featehred wings to the back of the shirt.
Once I get it all together I will take pictures and show you. ^-^
