##Putting together your Shilo costume##
Step 1: Shilo’s costume combines Victorian goth with industrial punk. Pick up a white tank top and wear a ruffled white lace jabot over it.
Step 2: Pull on a short, cropped vest or cropped grey short sleeved jacket. Either of these items can easily be found in a girls’ or young womens’ clothing store.
Step 3: Add a small black bow to the neckline of your blouse/jabot and wear a cameo necklace over it.
Step 4: Put on a short or knee-length schoolgirl style skirt in black.
Step 5: Wear a pair of thigh high stockings in either plain, opaque or even fishnet. Pull on an intimidating, industrial-goth looking pair of black boots over the top of them!
Step 6: Put on a watch or wristlet for a makeshift hologram projector.
Step 7: Put on a long, black wig for jet-black, straight hair. Add some eyeliner and you’ll be ready to hide from the Repo Men!
