Fur needs to be brought down for Lulu's off the shoulder look. Looks like the fur might be a little too small length wise if get it offshoulder - but fur is wide so if running short could possibly trim the width to patch any shortness in length.

Also, Lulu's corset does not have a zipper in the front, and it has contrast edging on the boning channels. Maybe you could make a false front that attaches onto the corset to make it look more accurate...

1. The length of the furs is ok, that was one of the problems i am having is how to cut this fur without messing it up.

2. Yeah that zipper is pretty noticable. What i hopefully plan on doing is for the grey materail part will cover it up or i will color the zipper black to hide it alittle better... mabye???

Well the grey pary won't cover it up because it's not part of the corset o_O

I agree w Sarcasm-him about the false front. Does it give enough in the back for you to be able to get into it without a zipper?

actually. .in my opionion, although i am making a Lulu costume as well and am not doing it this way, but i think you could get the same look, and make it a little more individual by instead of covering the zipper in the front. .buy more metal zippers.. fold the fabric under the metal and hand sew them down creating the grey strips that appear on the corset, and maybe edge the bottom in an open zipper.. i think that could be very awesome..

and the fur does need to be lowered.. and if it's real fur which it looks, you should have no problems cutting it, as it wont fray because it's on a hid

oh, that actually sounds kinda of cool. the zippers are grey.... hmmm...

anyways i put grey on the corest and started the hairpicks.
The hairpicks are not painted yet. Wanted input before i paint and finish them.... is the size ok, etc....

The fur should be a little lower down, because Lulu's top is off the shoulder, but I don't suggest making it as low as Lulu's really is unless 1: You've got cleavage and 2: You don't mind showing it off. I think the corset top looks fine and the zipper is not that noticable with the grey parts put in. The hairsticks are a little large but I think they look fine. Creative licence, baby ^_^ I say go ahead and paint them! Awesome job so far-I love Lulu and really want to do that costume. Can't wait to see it complete at Anime Reactor!!!

Well it was decided. Im changed the line to thinner lines on the corset.

The yellow hairpick is a good size i wasnt all the way in my hair.... and the one on the right is ok its a normal hairpick size..... Totally redoing the bottom left one!

Was the bead size ok thought?
