Powder your face white and use a few chopsticks-become a geisha.

I have an asian inspired dress (so, not a kimono) and I am was thinking of doing a Geisha.  BUT then, I thought of doing either an anime character, or one of the character's from the fighting video games? street figher, tekken, mortal kombat, etc...
So I bought (from walmart) a sword that goes accross my back (we are going to paint it to make it look better...ie not WHITE) and I am going to alter my dress so that it is like mid thigh, with slits on the sides, and wear tights and flat ballet shoes.
I am just going to do two pig tails or buns or something with my hair.
Should be simple...I hope....lol

wigs are generally used by geishas bt I dyed my hair a darker brown,amlsot black,backcombed it and then had a roll of hair going from ear to ear,almost like a quiff.the rest of my hiar was put in a bun
