Default Big A$$ OTT Bow Help

Warning the pics are just practice. Ignore the ugly color combo!!!!

I have a customer who wants me to make her a large OTT bow. I have tried to convince her to go somewhere else and get one...but I guess she really likes one of my bows and wants it BIGGER.

I think I found a way to stiffin the spikes w o making the printed ribbon fade (I hate that). i also think I found a way to stiffin the center tbb after I layer the ribbon. In the pics the center bow is not stiff so it's not holding it's shape well.

OK the questions. I turned the base bow (tbb) upside down but I think it looks odd. I think it will push up on the spiked and look sloppy. Any help?
I usually use a pinwheel as a base but want this bow to look super fancy.

I think the center bow should be smaller. Yes?

I think it needs more marabou. I am using 8 inches. Maybe 10?
