Is her skirt dyed? or maybe its some sort of lighting effect in the picture... so confused.

Hmm, it's hard to tell if it's a gradient or not. I'm thinking it might just be lighting since all of her clothes seem to have that same effect. It definitely looks to me like she's wearing a patterned brocade though. At least the cream and green fabrics. Since the black part looks like some sort of modified corset-type thing I'd make it out of a heavier material or line it really well.

The only part that has gradient dying is the green ruffles on her shoulder. the rest is all brocade =) gotta love those evil dw designs ^_^

Yup, brocade is commonly used for Dynasty Warrior cosplays.

To me, it looks like her skirt is definitely gradient dyed. Starting from like a mint green at the top to a really deep green at the bottom.
Same with the green trim on her shoulder 'armor'.

Now that I look like it, a lot of the white brocade is gradient too, at least mostly the parts on her legs. White at top, a kinda muddy grey/brown at the bottom.
