Why not? Ballet characters are still characters... and ballet costumes are still costumes

Not sure how the recognizability factor will be. But if they're well-done I imagine quite a few people would enjoy them. You may even find yourself in demand to pose with cosplayers from series with ties to ballet or images that could be complimented by ballet dancers (Princess Tutu, The Swan, Garasu no Kamen, etc).
Basement Sale: Touhou: Mokou costume, clearfiles/shitajiki, NeoRomance/Angelique artbook, etc.

I think ballet costumes would be absolutely fine to wear. I've had a few designs in the back of my head (from both ballet and opera) that I've wanted to do purely because of the elaborateness and the intricacies: the peacock from Nutcracker: The Motion Picture, Carabosse and the Lilac Fairy from The Sleeping Beauty, and Diana Damrau's Queen of the Night from The Magic Flute (most of her costumes are wonderful, a few make you think the costume designer was drinking while designing, but I love this version: http://www.youtube.com/watch#!v=DvuKxL4LOqc )

Ballet costumes I think are no different from period costumes. People might not neccesarily know the exact details of who you're portraying, but that doesn't mean they won't like it any less.
