Right now it's only a concept but I'll get there before October!
I know there's an example on the envelope, but I wanted to see it in my choice of colors. I thought  the colors/patterns might look good together, but I wanted opinions so I needed a visual aid. The general consensus is that it will rock. B)
The skirt will be black/white striped with the contrasting part of the skirt's underside done in white. The grey of the shirt and sleeves will actually be black. I just made them grey so they wouldn't blend with the body of the jacket. You can't tell from this because the scanner ate the colors, but there are swirling silver and gold patterns on the jacket. The actual fabric I'm wanting to use has gold Asian dragons and silver tree branches (I'm thinking they're cherry tree branches).

That's gonna' look so great!  And I think I have this same pattern.  I keep on pulling it out to daydream, so I'm excited to see your finished costume!

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

Thanks Cheesy
I'll be updating this as I get the various pieces done. Right now I'm working on my goggles.
