Nah, the fun one was the last suggestion, you get to blow kisses and dance around showing the legs a bit, and get to poke fun at Lysaer's false religion and his pompous priests.
White silk with a sunwheel logo is not that hard to do, probably an old table cloth would do, with a bit of gold material and thread. If you have a cat who never wears bells you should have a good supply of bells, if not they should be easy to buy and place on some ribbon. Janny never described what paint they were wearing under the outfit, but it might have been gold, like the boys wore. But you dance around in a white robe with a gold sunwheel logo on the chest, any WoLaS fan who read Traitor's Knot is going to immediately recognize your outfit. Probably even without reading that book they would be highly suspicious.
Dancing on rouged feet, a parade of belled harlots regaled him with blown kisses and smiles. Covering each splendid, seductress's curves was a sunwheel robe, its emblem jiggling against unbound breasts, while the trade-quarter shopkeepers, reeling drunk, clapped and shouted to cheer on their antics.
One of the prostitutes screamed in delight. 'Dharkaron bear witness, you fat, pious saint!' Bosom out-thrust, her attire skirled above lissome thighs, she ran on, 'Here's Ath's perfect justice! We're twins!'
The priest flushed puce and roared, indignation drowned under the roisterers' shrieks of hilarity. There followed an infamous chase through the streets, in which eight naked priests in flapping silk held by pins bolted outside to fetch the town-guard. Armed men were conscripted in the cause of the Light, then dispatched to wrestle the belled tarts of Innish to recover their desecrated sunwheel finery.
The ladies wore nothing but paint underneath. Amid the rough play and licentious jokes, all of Innish dropped prostrate with laughter.
The sunwheel can be seen on the old UK cover of Fugitive Prince.
But for an iconic image that is nice I would go with Jeynsa. But Daliana is a stayer, I am sure she will outlast Lysaer, at least on this side of the veil, maybe we will still think she is unlucky, maybe not.
