Original Design; Opinions wanted~!

Hey all, I have no idea where to put this thread. I guess it would go in suggestions...?
I'm heading to AX in less than a month, and I wanted to throw together a new costume. I wanted to do something Vocaloid themed, because of the Miku concert, but then I thought...That's kind of boring, right? Everyone's gonna be a Vocaloid.
Currently, my anime obsession is Black Butler. I have a Ciel costume, so I thought "Hey! What if I do a Black Butler/Vocaloid crossover?"
So I decided to design a Matryoshka outfit for Ciel.
Ref for Ciel;http://images.wikia.com/phantomhive/...hantomhive.jpg
Ref for Matryoshka; http://static.zerochan.net/full/47/07/387897.jpg
Now, that sounds simple enough, get a blue hoodie, put some decals on it, you're good to go. But, hoodies aren't really...period correct for Black Butler. So I put a little more thought into it, and came out with this http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/f/20...4d-d3ikbiu.jpg

I think it looks alright right now, and it's simple enough to throw together. But I want some opinions and ideas before I start working on it. Is there anything I could add to make it more Matryoshka-y? Or anything I should take out because it's too distracting? My main goal here is to make it obvious that I'm Ciel Phantomhive, but also obvious that I'm doing a Matryoshka version. Any feedback is awesome~! Thanks!

I really like it, I'm not familiar with vocaloid, but the way you're modifying Ciel fits great! I cannot wait to see it made!

Red? Why red...? Because of Ciel's hair color, red doesn't really suit him very well. Maybe more of a burgundy or cranberry, but certainly not red. I went for more a of blue theme, since...well. Ciel is a blue kind of character~
I actually finished the costume, with changes to the design. A lot of them :P
Sorry, the photos don't really show what I did very well. :l

It looks cool.

You've put the time in and come out with something neat.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That said, I love both of the things you've crossed over and wouldn't have an inkling what you were going for until you told me, at which point I'd go "O~OH!" It's hard for me to see the connection between Matroyshka and Kuroshitsuji. I'm a bit baffled as to how you got from Point A to Point B to Point C in the first place.
