Looking for formal/fancy cosplay suggestions

I wasn't really sure where to put this, so if it's in the wrong category, please let me know.

I'm looking for cosplay suggestions for characters that wear formal/fancy dresses, preferably floor length. Suggestions for anything from Yuko of xxxHolic's Dimensional Witch dress to Chii of Chobit's dresses are welcome. Also, this isn't a requirement, but if the character has fun colored hair, that would be great. If you could include a pictures with your suggestions it would be much appreciated.

Sailor Scouts in princess dresses. ;D There's plenty of funky hair to choose from there.

Some of the dresses from Rozen Maiden might work?

That list above me covered a lot of mine too.

Don't be limited! Just shove a random character into a pretty dress! http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1745532/

Also seconding the "random character" suggestion -- we did a formal FMA group cosplay with Riza Hawkeye, Ed Elric and Roy Mustang, as well as a formal Witch Hunter Robin cosplay. CloakedSchemer has a lovely Harley Quinn (Batman) ballgown. You can come up with a formal variation for nearly any character. (And nearly every shoujo character ends up in a formal gown at SOME point, too, so there are a wide variety of "canon" costumes from which to choose...) ^_^

Other formal costumes: (I'll try to remember to edit post with more/better image links when I get a faster connection, since mine is slooooooow right now)

- Black Lady, Sailormoon (along with every other female character -- there are probably fifteen formal dress designs for each of the senshi)
- Faye Valentine, Cowboy Bebop (has several dress designs, mostly artbook)
- Haydee (opera dress), Eugenie (concert dress), Mercedes, Valentine, or any other female character from Gankutsuou
- Relena from Gundam W (dance dress, party dress, queen gown, artbook)
- Utena and Anthy, Revolutionary Girl Utena (series or movie designs)
- all the girls (except Emma) in Victorian Romance Emma
- Fine and Rein (Prominence dresses or Gyu), Fushigiboshi no Futagohime
- Yuki (dance dress), Vampire Knight
- most of the cast of Ouran Koukou Host Club end up in ballgowns...

Sakura (Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle) has A LOT of formal, fancy outfits, really too many to link here. There are some really big artbook scans HERE, but there are more outfits than just the ones pictured there. Also, most of women in Kuroshitsuji wear formal Victorian-style things, especially Madame Red and Elizabeth.

If you're into historical costumes, how about Lia, or Madame de Pompadour from Chevalier d'Eon?

I have tried three times to edit my previous post, and it will NOT let me save it! I don't know what's going on. :P Well, most of those characters are popular enough that you can find images for them.

Here are some Kuroshitsuji references:

- Ciel (undercover as a girl): one, two
- Elizabeth
- Madam Red, alternate one, alternate two
