I thought a white suit might be a nice contrast but instead it seems kind of like a no color suit. Any ideas what would be a good color for this? Thanks.

deep royal purple....will pop the orange and yellow and I've seen that color in choir outfits...and should compliment the skin tone you have...and you've already got a little purple going on too!

Dyin,
Thanks so much for responding. I played around with colors & agree with you a purple (maybe a little bluish) seems the best. It's always nice to have another opinion. :)

maybe now that it's back up and people are posting you'll get some more opinions...but I like a bluish-purple...hope you'll post it when you're done!

Some intricate work going on there Tammy..... yes I think a purply /blue would work well here, also a very deep rich red ... I think you need to stay away from light colours for the robe...... the richer the blue/purple or red the better to give depth and impact and a wonderful focal point, the figure would then really be more three dimensional... let us see the finished piece won't you.?

Cheers,
Mo.:)
