thanks! the only remaining things are what to do with my hair, and what type of shirt and skirt i should wear. do you think a short or long skirt is better?

deffinatly a shorter (above knee length) skirt.  That way, you can show off brightly colored tights and/or socks.

i always liked the skirt with leg warmers that sort of fall over your shoes. to me that is total japanese street fashion, maybe a pair of white trainers you have painted bright pink with yellow stars or something.
and pigtails, if your hair is long enough, straightened w/ a flat iron, maybe some ribbons coming out of them.
what a great idea for a costume! remember to post pics!

I think a knee length skirt (or slightly shorter) with lots of ruffles and lace layers would look fab with knee length stripey socks, flared legwarmers and chunky bright coloured trainers!

I'm living in Japan right now, and I've got one word for you...DISNEY! Disney characters are so huge here right now. Especially Minnie and Mickey. Tacky? Yes. Authentic? You betcha' Make sure to post pics of your finished costume, I wanna see  Cheesy
