I hardly can think about La Esmeralda of not being creative at some moment. I believe that artistic feeling for people like La Esmeralda is like a second nature, an instinct, something that flows through her veins. Art for somebody like La Esmeralda is a way of life. And because of that, this world is a little better each day. She brings beauty, she brings inspiration, she brings style. Focusing on this stunning picture, the whole color impact is delightful. Taking in account that the delicate dress is burgundy (thanks again for helping to point out well the tone), it was a perfect choice the location with this violet flowers as background. Also the contrast of areas with full sunlight and some with shadow is the right ambiance to increase also the effect of the complimentary colors like the black on the corset and the greens on the nature. The pose is wonderful, showing confidence and taste. Wonderful piece of art.

Hey, first of all I love this outfit it fantastic nicely made.

Ratings,
I found it quite hard to find fault in the outfit. Which is fantastic and here is why.

Vision: Amazing I got the impression you were going for Disney's Esmeralda, (Huntchback of Notre Dame), or that sort of time period. I'm probably wrong but it is what I got from the vision, that character 5 stars

Originality: Very original although I have seen similar outfits before. Yours is most impressive. So 4.5 stars

Technique: I can see the amount of effort put into this attire, It's looks like it's been made very well, You really brought out your figure which is stunning. so 5 stars

Impact: Just wow, It's amazing the colours are well picked and the scenery compliments it, I love it so 5 stars

Hope you are happy with my opinions :) keep up the amazing work

I think the reason your title doesn't quite fit is that crimson, I believe, (but I'm not a color expert) is much more of a bright red,  like the wristband is not quite crimson, but it's close. The lovely color of the dress, I looked up the html color codes (granted not the most poetic source lol), I would name Claret, or Deep Ruby, or Amaranth Purple, Imperial Purple, Tyrian Purple, or Pansy Purple all are close. Burgundy is a great romantic word, and is much closer than Crimson, but the color Burgundy is more red than the dress. Now,  to work one of those into a good title, which was the real goal, Claret Clarice? Amaranth Amanita? The Burgundian Baroness. Ugh, terrible.  Ok, there's 3 suggestions of what NOT to call it. Nice photo tho.

Thank you!
Actually this title already was a suggestion by another deviant and I liked it a lot, even if it is not the exact colour.
I don't think that titles are too important anyway :D Thank you for thinking about it!

1. Cabaret Rhododendron, because the rhododendrons can almost pass for Kabaretts.

2. La Esmeralda Morada. Romantic to my ear.

The colors of the dress and flowers in the BG are a great combo. Not sure if it was planned that way, but they compliment each other very well.

A Victorian rose by any other name....Hmmmm...Something to do with Lavender like; Lavender Rose, Lavender goddess. Lavender gypsy. Lavender gypsy goddess...What is your nationality by the way. The way you look in this picture you could very easily be mistaken for a gypsy, or some old creole', but the structure of your face, nose eyes and hair looking Italiana or Spaniard-ish.

Wonderful mix of colors with the blurred background and mimicked colors in your overall dress in the foreground.

And you are sure wearing that corset laced tight... how small can you make your waist with it? I've tried tightlacing but I'm a bit of a wuss, so I haven't made much progress. ^^U
