Hello there!

One lucky thing about cosplaying such an iconic outfit is that a lot of fans have already done breakdowns of the outfit, and the original costume has been on display at museums, leading to high-quality reference images. 

This one is very detailed, and breaks down the fabrics used quite nicely.

If you didn’t mind not being completely accurate to the original materials, but wanted something easier to work with and less delicate, I would replace the plastic film with iridescent mirror organza. It would have a very similar appearance, but it won’t tear or shred as easily as the original plastic material.

I hope that helps! Good luck :]
