DO NOT UPLOAD TO ZEROCHAN OR ANYWHERE ELSE. What. A. GORGEOUS. WOMAN. Ladies & Gentlemen, presenting Miss Cardia Beckford in her Mafia outfit, along with her companion pet Sissi the puppy-dog, who also happens to be Number 07 in Lupin's Mafia. Yes, he even got a cute bib as a "suit" that comes with a tie & fedora hat to match...and sunglasses! I get a "Blues Brothers" vibe here.

Speaking of nods to movies past, Cardia's dress was inspired by one of the dresses Audrey Hepburn wears in the movie "My Fair Lady". Ever since I saw the outfit I knew it looked familiar, but couldn't quite put it together. After looking at the concept sketches in the back of the book this is from, it finally clicked. I shared the comparison here. I never got the doll that had this outfit, but I'm really happy to see it reinvented in the Steampunk Princess. I really love it when artist go the extra step to look up iconic fashion and use it in their work.
