Skyward Sword Impa - pattern and fabric help?

Hey all!

I'm highly considering swapping out Ghirahim for Impa for my SS cosplay group.

The only thing is I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to sewing, and I'm both unsure of what kind of fabric to use for this costume as well as I have NO idea what actual pattern to use for the top and the poofy pants which I kind of want to make as one body suit.

All help will be super appreciated!

Also here is what I think is the best reference picture of any character in existence:

Remember, if you do want it to be one suit you can always piece patterns together!

For the top look for a halterneck pattern and maybe a pair of harem pants for the bottoms but I don't know how that would work out, it all depends on the pattern.

Although, I do think you could get away with having two pieces because the belt is so big, or you could make a jump suit type thing.

Good luck :] sorry I couldn't help more!

The belt gives you an out for making a separate top & bottom, otherwise you'll need a zipper either on the side or down the back to get in & out of it as a one piece outfit. This will need a LOT of drafting to make it a one piece outfit.

I'd make a long tunic top, ending at the points below the hip line, and pants. Because I like to be able to use the facilities without having to get fully undressed.

Actually, I think design A in Kwik Sew pattern 3273 would work nicely, the only thing you would have to do is make the pants puffier at the bottom: It's what I was planning to use if I ever did an Impa cosplay Hope this helps~

Kwik-Sew has quite a few athletic patterns if you make this into two parts. 3835 is a good base pattern for the pants.
