Teen Titans, Formal Raven Dress

So, one of the local cons that I go to are having a cosplay spring formal dance, like prom/wedding formal, so formal attire's required. I don't have a cosplay that fits that requirement, but I wanted to go as Raven from Teen Titans (tv version) and I drew a concept of what I want the dress to look like: PICTURE HERE

Mostly, what do you guys think? It's got the halter top, backless (mid-cut), I'll be wearing the belt and I want the skirt to be flowy. Second, do you think it'd fit Raven's personality/style? I was thinking about adding gloves (can't decide if I'd want long sleeved gloves or short), but they'd be fingerless and make a point on the hand. I don't know what I'm gonna do for the shoes yet (any suggestions??). The dress'll be a dark navy blue like her leotard.

So ya, what do you guys think? Yay? Nay? Anything I should add or change? Thanks ^ ^


PS. I'm hoping to start planning the pattern this weekend, I'll try to show pictures for the dress when I start cutting it

I think a longer dress would fit Raven better. Something floor-length and somber. Maybe velvet.

As for the gloves, I think longer gloves that come to a point at the top would look pretty cool. Something like this, if you can decipher my drawing.

Velvet huh? I've never used it before, I'll have to see how it looks. And I'll have to experiment with the length of the dress, I have an idea of which shoes I'm gonna wear which should help.

I get what you're saying about the gloves, maybe ^ ^ Thanks
