Working on a Costume: Incohate Inspirational Imagery

It's a public dance party that encourages costumes, basically. The following images are my weird mix of aesthetic inspiration that I'm working with to hone in on the feel of what I want to wear and how I want it to look--from there arises the choices of what actual clothes and accessories I'll don.
