Easter Egg Costume Challenge - bringing it to the antipodes

While looking at pretties on the internet, I came across this Easter Egg Costume Challenge on "Au Temple des Modes" blog. I already have the ideal dress with my recent regency steampunk.

To quote the orginal text in english (via Google translate)
What is it?
Behind the name a little mysterious Easter Egg hides in fact a simple concept. The term refers to something hidden, such as a DVD or a website menu. We are inspired by the name for our challenge! The goal is to create a costume cutting, hyper historical details and by far seems to be correct historically. The surprise is revealed when we approach the fabric, trims are in fact not at all history! For example, a woven fabric, a web Christmas pad with candy, etc.. Be imaginative!

What is the purpose?
It is not a competition. Each at the end of the challenge will be free to organize an event in his city, region, country to "celebrate" the end of the challenge. The goal is to have fun, laughing a little, without falling into the traditional opposition purists Vs "pretty princesses." Enjoy!

How does it work?
The rule is simple, the suit must, at a distance look correct historically (colors, materials and shapes). What matters is the illusion and trompe l'oeil. For the rest, everything is permitted!

I am not in Paris, can I participate?
Of course! Just relaying information if you have a blog, you can participate in our first meeting EEC challenge. If you can not come in the Paris region, you can create your own output claiming the EEC challenge by posting on your blog or EEC facebook page.

Are there an end date?
Yes, but for now, it is not fixed precisely. We just know that the deadline will be held in the spring or summer of 2014.

How to participate?
The best is to directly copy the url code below pictures on your blog, copy of my long prose and make a link to the original page and then invite others to participate! You can keep more or less suspense to your project and whether to publish notes about your creation.
PS: Hello Kitty fabric illustration is of course a tribute to Jenny and her dress in the English Hello Kitty !
