Tale of the Abyss Anise Tatlin help

I am going to make/ attempt to make Anise from tales of the Abyss

Reference image: http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/files...8/Aniseref.jpg

and I am just utterly lost on how to go about this. The pattern/construction I can manage. I am just not sure how I can approach how to do:

1. How to sew the purple and white rims around the dress/collar and the design on the collar itself

2. The brown leathery looking part on her shoes.

3. The material and type of fabric I should look into getting to do all of this

Please and thank you for any of the advice and help!!! Much appreciated.

Look like spats to me, that might help you in some research. You can get patterns for them and make your own pair out of any material, such as suede or leather.

1. Bias tape for the borders. Here's a tutorial. Applique for the designs. A tutorial. You can probably get by with ironing extra bias tape flat to use with the applique, since her designs are relatively thin.

3. I think cotton sateen (not satin, it's a cotton with a light sheen to it) would look nice. I think you should also use some light/medium weight interfacing for her pennants, to help give them a nice shape. Pleather for her shoes, spandex for the upper portions.
