So i decided i want to do this outfit next, but was curious as to what to do, if i dont know what most of the outfit looks like. Diddnt know if any of you guys could give me some tips on how to improv it or something. (oh i am doing Fuu of course eheh ^_^)

Well, the one piece of advice I have to offer is:
Don't lose sleep over trying to find a reference pic that shows more, because that's an artbook costume, not a series costume. Beyond that, I hope you succeed.
BTW, I have a schematic for making Fuu's sword if you want it.

Yeah you arent going to find a better reference pic for that costume than that one right there. Though the scan is crap and you could probably find a better version of the pic. You can make the dress as long or short as you want. Noone knows how long that dress is. Alot of htings are at your leisure to change because they arent visible. Just get the key elements of the costume and t he wig and glasses and ppl will know who you are.
A suggestion for shoes, make roman sandles, you know the kind that wrap up your leg?
You could look into some Art Nouveau images for ideas, since that's the inspiration for those costumes. (google image search: http://images.google.com/images?svnum=10&hs=qeK&hl=en&lr=&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&q=art+nouveau+girl&btnG=Search )
It seems that most of the designs are fairly basic long dresses, with interesting touches of jewelry, like the chest decorations.
You could also look at Fuu's other art nouveau artbook designs:

You might also look at Emeraude's or Presea's dresses... those are very similar.
