Costumers all tend to have a specific era or genre that appeals to us aesthetically, which is fine, but sometimes we get too focused and fail to appreciate other eras or genres that might suit our body type, our facial features, or even just challenge us to think outside the box a little bit. So, I'm opening the floor for suggestions: Give me one costume you'd want me to wear, and why. Picture links appreciated. :)

And then spread this meme like SARS and I'll try to do the same for you!

For the sake of my sanity, I'm not looking at naalbinded hand-wear right now.
This is mostly for Eastern Europe, and what else I randomly found so it won't have everything.

If anyone is wondering, the first glove on the list looks really interesting and tempting to try and make.
