Question Harley Quinn: Arkham City

Hey! I'm doing my first construction of a cosplay and it's going to be Harley Quinn's Arkham City outfit and I'm doing her revenge outfit as well. I know, it's a little ambitious, but I've already figured out the corset, it's the pants and fabric I'm having trouble with! XD

I've seen different variations of what fabrics other cosplayers have used for her pants, but I really like the leather-look of the pants better, but it's very hard to find a fabric for that. I need help looking for a pleather that isn't super red, but more of a burgundy color that matches her's in the game. And I'm pretty sure you can't dye pleather if I remember correctly. So I need help finding a burgundy pleather that is also stretchy because it's going to be used for pants! If you can help, thank you so much

PS, I'm also eventually doing her Injustice outfit, if you can help me with the fabric on that too I will be forever grateful

Oh! Forgot to mention, I'd also like it to be a matte finish, not shiny. So, burgundy red+pleather+matte+stretchy!

While I am vaguely familiar with the character, you site specific colors without linking photos or screen caps of said outfits. This makes it very hard to help you.

Like Penlowe said you should post some reference photos for people to help you better. You can dye pleather/leather also.
