Throwing ideas for my cosplay- red dress?

Hello :D I came along here through google when looking for a costume featuring a girl in a red dress =) and tried the cosplay search here, too, toured through Flickr.

There's a cosplay coming up, and I have a red dress that I wonder if it could be used.
Is there a character or anyone I could dress up without damaging/altering/retouching the dress? Any accessories?

My ideas if there's no specific character:
-a sort of yakuza girlfriend
-cat girl (Tokyo Mew Mew-style ears, tail?)

Mmmh :3

I picture a fan or parasol, but there's a good chance that I'll be commuting about two hours; on a train and bus that may crowd.

**Cosplay is the coming weekend. :D So unprepared.
If there's something simple I could do (school girl?) let me know.

Thanks =)

Thank you so much!! (*^0^*)/☆ I haven't heard of that game so read up on the character a bit. Whee, first potential time cosplaying.
Do people mind someone dressed up without really knowing the character? Scouting around online...
Whee, other cosplays and game clips give a full view of what she looks like. :D

This is a trial shot.

I read up on hadoken- mmh, seems she doesn't do it? Read that she smacks people in the face with her clipboard.

I think I'll hunt at the dollar store for glasses; these are fuzzy and really bring out my eyebrows and tired eyes :?
Sunglass, or something to pop out the lenses... ¢(..)
Also, I don't know about wearing a skirt overtop. Hm. I may have a black skirt somewhere- may be too dark in the pic, but it's a jean skirt.

Though Sakura (Street Fighter) does do the Hadouken, nice pose too you got it right!! :) Well i think it depends... Ive seen someone on Youtube cosplay the character and doesn't know anything about them.

Alright, I hope I fit in =)
Found glasses and a chain at the dollar store.


No skirt to be found yet though... I feel like a hooker.
Esp once I paint my nails red. (≧∀≦)/

Maybe these would be okay underneath.

I'm a little phobic about wearing jewellery. I just picture it being grabbed or caught onto something. I did find a necklace and earrings which
have this little crystal-shaped glass.
