Help with finding a pattern and choosing material!

I don't know if this is posted in the correct place but I need help finding a pattern for this character. These two pictures are some of the only pictures I have found since it's from a Japanese H- Game.





I'm thinking of using cotton for the material but I'm open to suggestions. I'm still kind of new to sewing but I've worked with faux fur, some lining, darting, and of course different kinds of stitching. I'm up for a challenge and that's why I want to do this so if you have any suggestions please let me know!

Interesting!
I'd look in the 'formal wear/ evening' section of the standard pattern companies pattern books. Chances are you will need to marry a couple patterns, one for the waist down & one for the collar & sleeve area. If you get lucky you'll find something that is right from bust line down and a second that is just shoulder, collar & sleeves.
You are looking for:
fitted Princess seamed gown (to get the length without seams at the waist)
a mermaid tail skirt (a lot of these are seamed at the top of the mermaid tail itself, it'll take some looking to find a seamless variety)
back zipper
stand up collar (it isn't quite a Mandarin, it's taller, but that will do)
a fitted sleeve.
