Question Would Fairy Tail fans have issue with Lucy alteration? (pic of wip)

Soo... I just started watching while I happened to be making a practice pleated skirt out of my spare simple cotton before using my nice plaid for the final go. But it turned out pretty darn good if i do say so myself, for a first try. And I noticed my boots near the door, and an old white button up shirt that was too big in the first place.

Would it be a big sticking point if I use more light blue to make the rest of the costume instead of the dark blue? It's pretty pale, (worse in my pic cause my lighting sucks and it's the middle of the night.) I even made a petticoat to go under to give that perfect ever fluffed look. I have not yet taken starch or pleat spray to it yet, but i have hope because when it comes fresh off the ironing board all the folds are nice and crisp. I've been trying it on over and over and over right before the pic.

Let me know what you think. If it would bother you too much to enjoy it once it's finished (tomorrow night or the next i'll be putting the blue stripes on the shirt)


Vs.

It is a pale baby blue, but it maybe more recognizable once i get the blue parts on the shirt too. In better light the colors are a bit more contrasted.

Honestly, if you got the blue on the shirt and some of the other accessories (belt, wrist band, key ring, tattoo) I would still recognize you, but it does look very pale in your pic. Maybe post another one in better lighting?

If it is recogniseable as blue you might be fine, but I don't think dyeing fabrics would be expensive/time consuming, so I'd still consider it just for that extra touch The skirt really does look nice, so I'd encourage you to make the most of it!

I'd make it darker. If it looks that pale in crappy lightening it will definitely look that pale in bright outside light.

Also, perhaps standing straight up would help us figure out how to help you with the shirt. =]

Yeah, if you're worried about showing your face, just edit over it in paint before posting it online.
