Just watched and really enjoyed this, and wanted to note that the ending of the film's audio reworks/samples music by Nine Inch Nails, specifically from the Fixed EP; there's no mention of this in the end credits nor anywhere else on the internet as far as I can tell.

This Gary comment makes me wonder -- I wonder what the original Irma Vep's catsuit would have been made of?
According to film scholar Monica Dall’Asta, it’s essentially a full-body silk stocking. I would have thought it would be a fine woolen knit, like a swimsuit of the time, as silk would be awfully sheer. But in certain shots and stills, you can see a whole lot of Musidora.

That was my impression as well. Silk would make sense then.
