I would use something like black matte lyrca cotton for Huntress. You can find this fabric on places like spandexworld.com or spandexhouse.com.
If you need a pattern for a bodysuit, I used Kwik Sew 3052
I made my Batgirl cosplay with 4-way stretch leather, it looks amazing but it was really hot and uncomfortable. I would also avoid PVC material because that material doesn't allow your body to breathe and it's VERY shiny (if you like shiny bodysuits)
Ah, wonderful, thank you!! I am so glad to have someone's experience lending to this! I think I would definitely prefer the matte look as well, since I tend to relate the shiny spandex to dance uniforms! I'm glad you warned me of the leather. I think if I went that route, I would definitely be taking the cosplay off after just a short time. I will look more into the lyrca!
