Irelia cosplay

Hi there!

I'm working on a Nightblade Irelia cosplay from League of Legends, but I'm having a hard time choosing how to make her central body piece.


So I suppose I will have to make it in separate parts: the neck piece/ mask, the black leather-y jacket piece that goes around her torso and the corset front part. Should I sew this front part to the jacket and make it one full piece? Maybe separate it in three parts and do the mask part, the top chest part including sleeves (like a bolero) and a full corset part for the stomach?

I'm sorry if it's confusing xD Any help and suggestions would be very appreciated! Also, I would need some help choosing the fabrics. I was thinking of pleather and maybe broadcloth for the front parts, but I'm really not sure.

I would do a mask, a bolero-ish piece and leotard for the center body part. The way it sits on the body, with the very low cut pants and tucking up under the jacket, a leotard with be the easiest and most comfortable way to wear that outfit.

You might be able to purchase a leotard in one of the materials needed then amend it (it's a tricky mix) if you don't want to sew from scratch. Kwik Sew has all kinds of leotard patterns.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.
