Grown up variation of Elizabeth?
So, my friend is cosplaying as Drocell and we're doing a few photoshoots, one shoot is Drocell and Grell, but the other shoot I thought maybe a grown-up Elizabeth puppet. However, I'm not sure on what sort of top to construct.
I have the perfect skirt I altered, it's pink and multi-tiered corset waisted sort of Sweet Lolita based (not quite proper lolita, but similar in shape to something more elegant from Black Peace Now or Metamorphose for those who know a bit of Lolita fashion). I just don't know what sort of top to pair up with it is all and I definitely want to make the top myself. I was thinking a lot of ruffles and lace and then I have a mini top hat that matches the skirt.
Also, should I still use Lizzie's pigtails just so the character is obvious? I do have shoulderblade length blond hair which curls at the ends normally so I could do the hair style she normally has in the series.
I also have puppet strings and a marionette control piece from a Saiyuki cosplay I was doing a while back, so I really think once I know what sort of top to make and what sort of accessories to make/use, this costume should be really neat.
So, I need to know:
What sort of top style?
Suggestions for accessories?
Make-up style suggestions?
