Regarding Lilith: cast my vote for white or blue. Although, working with something there's no color reference for? See what looks good with the wig and fabric for the outfit you're putting together? Pink might work.
And yeah for the Schera getting started!
I've been sidetracked by things in life and some other cosplays. But I am getting ready to finalize Empire Abel's trim--lots of pages of trim all drafted out.
Overall finish I'm targeting for the costume is by January. (Probably will be after ALA, not before knowing how stuff goes!)
