It hurts but I like it

I had some energy to burn tonight so I weeded through my closet to try and put together a new costume for when I'm go-go dancing at the costume ball night at the Vogue this Saturday. I have this chainmail top that I always wear over a dress much like the model is doing in this picture:

I took the chainmail top and paired it with a tiny PVC bikini top and a chainmail hip belt, my new pink and purple dread hair falls and other belly dance bits and pieces to make a goth belly dance costume. I'll most likely complete this with stompy lace up gothy boots:

The only drawback to this costume idea is that wearing the chainmail top over skin instead of over a dress means the weight of it digs into my neck and will hurt by the end of the night. I wish I had a swatch of soft, fake fur to stuff under the part that will dig into the back of my neck...but I don't. Any suggestions as to what I could layer between the chains and the back of my neck so this costume doesn't hurt me?
