That's the fun of it
On second thought..... I just googled those characters and it looks like the animators are pushing the erotic value to the max.
I see several options: you could make a kind of swimsuit/bodysuit as modest as you'd like, and consider the skirt just an ornament. (This is the way I'm approaching my sailor Venus costume) Or you could make the skirt longer, choosing to ignore the flashing panties component of your character. Many people do that and there are lenghty threads about the accuracy vs. modesty issue.
Either case, I'm sure you'll have a blast wearing that at a con.
Regarding help... just be more specific and we'll be there...
Reading more on that series: "The series is still a total guilty pleasure. It's so voyeuristic and near-pornographic you have to chuckle in places at the audacity of it all, and yet at the same time, be thankful that political correctness hasn't infected Japan yet. What makes it perverted, of course, is the camera angles....The one real problem with the series is its tendency to jump ahead in plot points, or simply jump to the ending. It's only a half-hour series, and really does need a full hour to get into the story. Either that or they need to stop wasting time elsewhere, like the lingering upskirt shots
