I'm finished with my costume now but I feel like something's missing. My bodice isn't laying as flat as I wanted T.T I've used a faux leather fabric, with buckrum where the grommets are so they don't pull. Is there anything I could put beneath it or maybe a better way of lacing it up so that it's not as crinkly?

I also can't decide how to do my make up. I'm waaay too indecisive when it comes to finishing touches. : ( What do you guys think Mami would wear?
Mami has a very neutral color scheme anyways, so what I personally go with is a gold color on the lid and a medium brown color on the outer corner and through the crease, and I highlight the inner corner and browbone with white light shimmer... then white on the waterline, black slightly winged eyeliner, mascara and natural-looking false lashes, and a set of 3 short individual lashes on the bottom outer corner...
For blush I use a light peach blush, I contour my nose a little with some slightly darker then skintone powder (I do this for ALL cosplays) and then I use a peachy pink gloss on the lips...
I do have to do extensive makeup on my eyebrows because they are black and bushy even with plucking but that's a story for another time XP
