Intricate/Complicated costumes

^^ Ah, my first time to wander into this part of the forum instead of the 'Armour, Props, Accessories' part.

So here's my predicament. Me, my sister, her boyfriend, and a coworker of mine, Janine, are all going to NYCC 2013. I'm going as No-Face (froggy-mode: aka after he's eaten everyone), my sister's going as some girl Tali form Mass Effect and her boyfriend's going as Rintarou (sp?) from Steins Gate anime. Janine, however, has not chosen her costume yet. And after going about a million Google searches, trying to find a character for her to go as, I've found that she's quite picky. ;P

She's been cosplaying WAY WAY longer then any of us have and she apparently LOVES to challenge herself by doing the most damnable intricate, complicated costume she can think of. She's done a bunch of Final Fantasy costumes (including Minerva, Bahamut, and one of the summons that can turn herself into a motorcycle of some sort (they're twins, I just can't remember their names ^^ sorry) and a couple Guilty Gear and Guild Wars characters.

So after a ton of research we've found that generally the really complicated costumes are in video games. And we've zeroed in on a couple choices below:

http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__..._1280_1024.jpg
http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__...c/Carmjudg.jpg
(she'd do Carmilla for the shoes alone, methinks 0_o things are in-sane!)

But I thought I'd check in here first and see if you guys here have any other complicated/ intricate/lots of details costumed female characters that might finally stump her ^^;

Does she have any parameters/preferences? Games vs. anime vs. comics vs. live action?

Lion's Gate just released promo images from "Catching Fire". Katniss, Effie, and Johanna all have difficult outfits to sew, but no armor. Might be a worthy challenge...

I usually see a lot of Trinity Blood in contests. Those characters get pretty intricate.

Also, art book versions of many things show more complex versions of outfits.

in reply to psychan nope she has no parameters. took a look at the hunger games outfits and they seem really cool and all. but i think shes more into the whole armour thing more then sewing so maybe something more armourish then dressy.

Fate series has a few armor. So does Fairy Tail, Fire Emblem series, Tales of series. Oh, Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors have a lot of female characters with armor and complicated clothing, especially with the recent games. Also check out Bubblegum Crisis for Megaman-like armor.

^^Awesome! Thanks for all the ideas guys. Now we just have to see which will satisfy Janine (and her odd desire to cause herself as much pain and stress creating a single costume ^^)

CLAMP is usually known for having ridiculously detailed outfits, and they do draw some armour here and there!

Here's an old one, but a good one.. Hikaru from Magic Knight Rayearth.. The Celestial version. It's got armour, but not much.

Or Fuu

The Angels from Angelic Layer are also CLAMP characters with armour, but they're not as detailed.
