It is a great idea. It propels you to look at something different for inspiration and sets a deadline so it actually gets made!
I watched the fifth element the day before the event was released. I love orange and haven't made any females for my warband yet so Leeloo as inspiration was a clear choice.

I have started with some dry fit mock ups, mainly built from the amazing harlequins set. The head is a place holder and I hope to change it soon. I want to use a head like the sisters of battle but with the hair billowing forward. I have been unsuccessful in finding any third party bits, so I may have to sculpt the hair.
1. Warband member Leeloo
2. Inquisitor Leeloo
In the second model I changed the back piece for the coat, I think it makes her look more like an inquisitor. I can't decide which I prefer. I also need to de-eldar her.
