Question Kagamine Len

Hello there cuties, I was hoping you could lend a rookie your expertise for a moment.

So, as you've probably already figured out I'm going to make a Len costume (from vocaloid), which will also be my first costume I might add!
BUT I'm having a hard time deciding whether I should have blonde/yellowish hair and stripes like the original has, or if I should go with a more golden/orangeish color instead which IMO looks better D:

Here are pictures to help you understand what I'm talking about!
"Original" look.

More golden/orange

Thanks for any help before hand, oh and this is also my first post ever on the site, hello and hug to all guys and gals from Sweden!

First, I don't see these "stripes" you mention. I've never seen len art with them..ever..so I'd go with the second option.

Sorry, english isn't my main language.
With "stripes" I mean't these things -->
(Not sure what to call em really, lines? Outlines?`

Anyhow, as I said I'm having trouble deciding what color to run with, yellow or more orangeish.

Well, if you want to be more "accurate" I would say go yellow since that's the twins color. But if you like the contrast of the orange-yellow more then go with that. Vocaloid has a lot of leeway for colors.

Next time you should specify that the stripes are the sleeves. You had one run on sentence about the hour so no one would have known what you meant. I like the sleeves with the stripes personally but it's not up to us what you should wear. If you like them, do it, if you didn't then don't
