Cosplay's That Make You Go WOW!

I'm planning my 2015 lineup and I am in desperate need of an elaborate female character from a recent and well known anime/video game but aren't extreeemmeelly overdone.

I'm about 5'3 and around 95 pounds.

I'm mainly looking for characters with some of these things:
Some armor (not full body, just little bits)
Big dresses and petticoats
Wings (they would have to be somewhat small as I will be travelling with this cosplay)
Weapons and props (these can be any size as I can make them dismantle)
Lace ^
Preferably NOT WHITE.

I'm all ok for it to be somewhat revealing but just not too showy ^.^

I would recommend Hatsune Miku since she had ALOT of different costumes that have pretty much everything you looking for. If your looking for a challenge I would suggest you go with her Append costume since it has a little armor like pieces and plenty of LEDs.
However, if you want a broader idea on the sort of costumes she has i would suggest you look up her game Project Diva. I would link it but there's about 5 different versions so I don't want to cloud up my post in links.

Another idea would be any League of Legends character. They're all well known and they have tons of different skins so there's a chance it may not be too overrated. All of the females in the game have very detailed designs and some pretty sweet weapons to go along with it.

Just a word of warning though, make sure you look up whatever character you choose extensively. Fans will get very pissed off with you if you only make a costume because it looks cool rather than because you personally like the character.

Building off what Lenny said, you should do a character because you want to. Not to impress nobody but yourself. People are allowed to be as accurate or inaccurate as they please for whatever reason they see fit. If someone's pissed because -you- choose to cosplay a character for -your- reason, then tough tit.

I'm not trying to impress anyone. I'm just looking for characters which will help me expand my sewing abilities.

League of Legends may offer you some good options, as a lot of the ladies have weapons/armor pieces and crazy designs!

You also might have some luck with CLAMP characters, as those ladies love drawing a ton of detail on elaborate outfits.

Anything form Guild Wars or Guild Wars 2 has alot of what you are looking for and you can be pretty creative with the color scheme due to all the different dye options.

I agree with the Miku suggestion.She has a bunch of intricate outfits. The other Vocaloids have a variety of outfits as well.

Trinity Blood has some crazy outfits. Black Butlers has some nice designs as well. Some of the outfits from Magi are intricate as well.
Working on...
|Natsume(Tokyo Ravens)|Morgiana(green blouse version, Magi)|Camellia Meiko(Vocaloid)|Emerald(RWBY)|Robin(Fire Emblem: Awakening)| Yona (Akatsuki no Yona)

@TMLiza I remember being all jealous of Trinity Blood cosplayers haha. The level of detail on those outfits are extraordinary

Keep the suggestions coming

Look up almost ANY MMO out there nowadays. There's a lot of them so....If you go on MOST anime watching sites (non paid ones) with adblock turned off, you will see a LOT of ads for online MMOs..Look these up. There are a ton of very intricate characters in them.

One of the first characters I thought of with smaller Wings and lace/ruffles
Is Meroko from the anime/manga Full moon o sagashite, but it isn't recent.
It comes in Red or Black
Also Madoka (Spoilers for Puella Magi Madoka Magica)
http://www.plastikitty.com/wp-conten...813-image1.jpg and
She has a Bow, so weapons check.

Like Lenny said, Vocaloids have some amazing costumes like
Luka Camellia

Euphemia li Britannia in her two white dresses (Also C.C. in the black version)
1st one: http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/files...ass_luff-1.jpg
and her white and gold one (and her sister, Cornelia)
2nd: http://i.imgur.com/5IdD2Ug.jpg
2nd cont.: http://i.imgur.com/sdUYuZH.jpg
Cosplayer references: [1] & [2]

Princess Peach, Super Smash brothers style:

Lady Palutena:

Ciel (Black Butler) in his pink dress:

and that's all the ones I can think of off at the moment. ^^
