14th April 2010: These boots are made for walking!! Well, the boots arrived today!! I'm really really happy with them, and have actually been wearing them all day since I got them xD Hehehe... Hopefully I should be able to get a similar colour/material (they're faux leather) to make the arm-guards with fairly easily, as it would look a bit stupid if they didn't match.

I ordered a basic kimono from eBay, and that should be arriving in the next day or so. This is going to be the base for the top part of the costume, so I'm going to get some pieces of a turquoise material and some gold braiding/edging that I'll try and mimic the design with :) So, lots of sewing for me!!! The kimono itself actually has a golden dragon design on the back. Not strictly what Jyuusan-hime has, but I thought it would add a nice touch! If it doesn't look any good, well I'll have to get a different kimono (this was only £3 or so so it's no big deal)... I'll update when I get it and start working on the kimono's design!!
