dood, that last one is soooo cool. I think this newer one works much better. The more prominent the ghost image and the texture, the more it took away from the eye's attraction to the centerpiece of the image(the girl). The texture over it also seemed to make the image appear flat so your eyes move around looking for something to look at instead of being moved around by the image. You know what I mean?
also, i didn't notice the ghost image until i read in your post that there was one, so i think it works better now.
By the way, really neat costume!
