Artpost: Ninjas. And Lolitas. A Mistake? Suggestions please

I had a sparkling idea to draw a bastard union of pirate-lolita with wa-lolita... a lolita NINJA!

It's not going all that well. My clothing design vocabulary is limited. Is this just a bad idea? I really want to pursue it to the end though.

Stylish Lolitas. Secret Ninja Video Gamers. Help PLZ!

I'm stuck stuck stuck. Styling suggestions are what I want but all constructive criticism (like composition suggestions, etc) would be welcome too. Final format will be a vertical portrait index card

All deadly sleek ninja must have a weapon. A lolita must be frilly and cute. Put them together and
It now neither looks like a lolita nor a ninja.

NINJA PARTS

1. There is a corset/armor on this lolitaninja to make it look more 'deadly' ish but that kind of takes away from the lolita IMO
2. Black color
3. Weapons.  small throwing knives... but would it be better to do something more cliche ninja like some gigantic shuriken to mess with scale (Guilty Gear style?)
4. Neck scarf
5. Eye patch
6. Tekkou hand covers (sp?)
7. Ninja chainmail / mesh

LOLITA PARTS
1.  Headbow
2.  Puffy sleeves
3.  Poofy jellyfish cupcake skirt NOT CONDUCIVE TO NINJA.  Would a change to ouji / kodona bloomer pants be too unlolita?
