C2E2 2013 Cosplay Idea

I only plan on attending C2E2 in Chicago for one day this year. I can't swing it finically or educationally to go for the weekend, sadly. I think I convinced the boyfriend and both my brothers to go as well on Saturday. Because I like to put myself in a time crunch, I decided I want to try to do some sort of cosplay. The boyfriend has never cosplayed, but wants to try it. I wanted to start him off with something simple so I think we are going to do real world Finn and Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time.
I know this has been attempted before, but I wanted to try my hand at it. We have the boyfriends outfit down. He is going to wear a pair of jeans, black converse type shoes, a blue shirt with jake printed on it in a pocket, and a white hat. He already owns a green backpack. Here's the shirt:

My costume will be a little more complicated. I don't really own anything that I need for my costume, but I found somethings online that will work. I bought this dress from American Apparel:
It is a bit pricey, but I will for sure wear it again, and making it would have cost the same. I have not bought this yet, but I think this will be the perfect polo to wear under the dress, and its budget friendly:
It is from the girls department, but it should fit and the sleeves are perfect. Once I get the shirt, I need to find ribbon to match, but that won't be difficult. I did buy pink hair chalk from a local beauty supply store. When I walked in, the sales person said they only had orange and pink, which was perfect for me. My hair is a dark brown so I am going to have to figure out how to make it vibrant enough. I'm thinking of using pink eyeshadow, a bit more blush than usual, and maybe pink lipstick in terms of makeup. I'm still working on a headband. This one from Claire's is a possibility:

I originally was thinking of pink tights, but I am now considering over the knee socks. Kind of a school girl look. Along with the knee high's, I'm looking for pink flats. There are many choices for both of these on amazon.

So those are my ideas. We shall see if I can get everything together in three weeks or so. I will hopefully post pictures when completed!
