Lollipop Chainsaw alternative

So I'm cosplaying Juliet Starling at the end of the month. My body isn't where I want to be regarding showing off my stomach so I came up with an idea on how to cameflouge it until my next con I cosplay her as. Being a ex cheerleader we were sleeves under our shells to keep from the cold but those only covered the upper portion.

So my question do you think I could pull off wear something like this (look below) and still be noticed as Juliet Starling? I could imagine that they would have something similar (probably just covering the upper part) but hell it's cold in October lol.

And this is my wallpaper picture lol. (motivation)

Why would I go with something closer to my skin tone when 1/4 of the outfit is white?

Do what makes you comfortable. You plan on toning up a bit more but in the meantime if you can wear it slightly modified and want to, go ahead you aren't doing this for the naysayers. As far as recognizability, I think so. I mean how many characters have that outfit/look like that?

They probably said that so it just looks like skin instead of a white "shirt". I could be wrong though.

I'd almost suggest just making a different version of the top that covers the mid drift like most high school cheerleader. (: It would look a bit more official I think (:

Maybe I'll just hold off of wearing the outfit all together.

There are other alternate outfits that Juliet has that you can choose from that are not so "showing".

The best option you could have went with would be to order a modified version of her outfit, making it a one piece cheerleading uniform instead of a two piece. BUT, since you already ordered the outfit, you could always like the people above mentioned, get a skin tone leotard. I've seen a lot of Panty's from Panty and Stocking do this, and honestly upon first look I couldn't tell it wasn't actually their skin.


If I can find the photo I'll edit this post later with it.

I'll look into the nude colored leo. If I can't find something maybe I'll just put some fake blood on my stomach to do some camelofughing. If anything I'm worried about the stechmarks/excess skin I have on my stomach from my pregnancy But of course, the blood could just make my stomach a focus point, but I could always place my chain saw in front of it.

Here are some pics of me, never thought I would be posting these but if i'm going to be at a con then I better get some practice in.

Do you think I would be fine without altering the outfit, or you think I should. No comments are going to hurt my feelings. I see one thing in a mirror and I wanna know what other see. PS I was really sucking it in but I was also really bloated lol.

The funny thing is...that's sort of what my stomach is like (I might be a tad bit larger IDK), and while it bugs me to have my own stomach that way, I don't think it's so bad on someone else.
