i definitely think it works much better without the hat, i felt that it wasn't fitting to the rest of her Qipao attire since its conventionally a part of a gothic - lolita style...and she looks more intimidating. I wouldn't take her seriously if she had that hat on :/ Nice addition of the tones too!
Heh, yeah. When I added the hat my mind was going in a weird direction and it didn't really suit the final piece. I just never got around to erasing it again xD Plus, she's definitely more creepy now, which is good! Thank you
