Suggestions and Advice for Ironette Cosplay??

So my friend is making an Iron Man costume that he hopes to finish for Comic Con this summer, and if he finishes it he might wear it to Anime Iowa too. Im not going to Comic Con, but I'll be going to Anime Iowa, and Im kinda wanting to coordinate with him, so Im wanting to maybe do an Ironette cosplay (as seen in Iron Man 2, the cheerleaders dancing on stage).

Here's some reference pictures:

Any suggestions on making the costume or the little lights would be helpful! Thanks!

A few friends and I are trying to get a group together to do a Phase One chorus girls (so, Cap's USO girls, the Ironettes, and Howard's chorus girls from the Stark Expo), so I've been looking at this costume a lot lately.

The lights look a lot like those cheap LED stick-on lights you can get at any hardware store or As Seen on TV; here's an example on Amazon. And this article has a sketch of the costume from the movie's concept sketch artist.

I would say the costume is 4-way stretch, metallic spandex. That's as far as I've gotten in my own costume planning!

oh cool!! Yeah I thought the lights looked like that too, but I couldnt remember what they were called lol! And that fabric looks pretty cool too, the red and gold would definitely look great together!!

Apparently my friend wants me to cosplay as Pepper Potts now instead, but Im still gonna keep this thread going cuz I'll definitely make this Ironette outfit sometime anyway lol.

I wonder if someone could make a pattern for this costume... hmm, and I wonder how the lights would stay attached to that fabric... Would hot glue be strong enough??

I'm not sure of the best way to attach the lights. The gloves look like they are two parts: the red fingerless part, and a separate piece for the light, which is attached with two gold straps, and slides on over the gloves. It would really depend on the actual light you got, because some of them have holes for nails or screws, which you could use to attach to the gold straps.
