    Honestly you could probably turn the dress into a big more of a Victorian style nightgown, since the poem takes place at night (or most of it does, at least). Here are some really beautiful illustrations of The Raven by Gustave Dore that might help get you going - they're not in color, but they might provide some costume ideas. Just search around to see how others (particularly play houses and actors) have interpreted Lenore :-) Good luck!
