Apologies for briefly going off topic - but HOLY CRAP that sounds amazing!! Is there a video of this by any chance?
Regarding the OP's question: CapsuleCorp and Empress of Squee gave some great advice. They're right - reveals definitely go over well with masquerade audiences and can add sizzle to a performance. The main thing that came to mind when I saw your question was this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ao7GS7uUDsw
IMO they totally nail it - they managed to do it in an artful, visually interesting way (note the super-colourful ninjas and backdrop!), the costume was something that was layered (and therefore came off easily), and the overall 'flow' made sense and added up to a really cool end result.
Here's another example from the same group: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WovLXcYWSc
Good luck! Quick change is definitely something you don't see very often in masquerades, so this could be really neat
