Question FMA Lust cosplay help?

I've decided at the last minute that I want to cosplay Lust from Full Metal Alchemist. I'm trying to find a good site to buy her outfit. I would like the gloves to not be attached to the dress. I'm looking to pay anything under $100 (including shipping) if possible.

If not, I am also looking for someone willing to make the outfit for me. The deadline I would need this by would be around the third week of May (I plan on cosplaying at FanimeCon13). Below is a reference pic for her. Any and all feedback is welcome, especially from anyone who might have cosplayed her in the past! Thanks!

Outfit I'm thinking of buying so far: http://www.milanoo.com/Fullmetal-Alc...ume-p7259.html

Outfit I think might look more accurate but no reviews: http://www.cosmates.jp/en/shop/produ.../currency/USD/

so what i did was buy a black dress that fit and then alter to look more like hers. it worked better cause most of the sites for her have the gloves attached and made out of velvet. also im sad to tell u this but it is nearly impossible to get a commisson this late into the game. i really would go buy a dress at a local cheap store like ross or order off of amazon like i did. I took an a-line and modded to a straighter cut. You then cut the bust area by taking a triangle cut and then hem the edges down, do the same for the bottom (but make sure u are wearing the boots so you know the exact height to hem them~)
if u need more help, you can pm me~ its hard to fully explain everything on here

This can't be said often enough: Stay. Away. From. Milanoo. I don't know a single case where they DIDN'T rip someone off.

I've never really watched FMA but you should check eBay for some cheap black dresses and modify them, like animenerd93 said. Maybe even check cheap retailers in your area, Kohl's, Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, maybe local prom stores? I'm sure a lot of their dresses will be going clearance soon. This might also sound odd, but you should seriously check out sites that sell stripper/club clothing, they usually have pretty sexy dresses which are affordable too.

Here are some links to some dresses that may work:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Strapless-Pa...item5ae1eb0c07

It may not be too helpful, but maybe it'll help you think of some ideas - good luck Can't wait to see how it comes out.
