Quick Question: White Mage Original Concept

Ok, I want to try to make some kind of an original White Mage concept, old-school style. I don't want to stray too far from the original design, but I do want my costume to have its own flair.

I was thinking of making a simple dress (something like this, probably view E) and put a poncho kinda like this with a hood over it. I'd adorn the edges with the traditional red triangles, and probably find a pair of high heeled boots in white.

So it sounds like I've got this pretty mapped out, right? So then, what's my question? I guess it boils down to I want to hear your opinions. I'm a total newb to original designs, and I have no idea what FF fans are going to think of this. Is it acceptable? Total sacrelige to the games? Tell me what you think, please!

You might get criticism from other cosplayers if you go modifying a staple costume. What about Garnet from FF IX's white mage cloak? It's very modern looking. I'm just saying one of my friends cosplayed Dion Rogers (the X-2 style) Rinoa before it got popular and there was backlash, so be aware.

Yeah, I'm aware therw's going to be some backlash. I've seen other modified White Mage's at the con I go to though, (NDK) and they don't seem to get treated too badly. And I thought about Garnet's white mage cloak at the beginning, and yeah it is modern, and I really like it, i just like the idea of coming up with my own a little better.

Anyway, thanks for the feedback!

I think that is a very well thought design. I personally like it ^_^ Are you planning on doing the red triangles on the poncho or adding them to the bottom of the dress? Any way you do this, I think its going to look really cool. Good luck!

Zashi, I'm putting the triangles on both the edge of the poncho AND the bottom of the dress, and I'm debating doing it around the edge of the hood as well.

I appreciate your compliments!

Edit: Syrinx, I just checked out your Red Mage costume, and it looks awesome! Kudos! Lol.
