Costume Information

General
Cost : Cheap though, about twenty quid or so
Time Taken : About 4 hours, this one was tricky

Description
This was entirely hand made *shudder* don't want to have to think about the creating process ever again O_0 Isa made a fantastic Fuu as she looked so much like her and stayed in character beautifully. And didn't she look pretty in pink! *jealousy*
Kimono - Pink linen which was supposed to look authentic but just creased so easily, oh well, learning curve and all. Flowers were pale pink cotton, stitched up and then cut through, same as Mugens jacket. The collar was a darker red, I think we used the same fabric as Mugens jacket, as was the Obi. Rather than create a proper obi that would tie bulky, I decided to make it in two separate pieces, the belt and the bow at the back to look a little more anime accurate. These were held together with pins and the bow at the front.
Accessories - Sandals, Hair ornaments made from Chopsticks by Isa and Tanto coated and painted by me. once again, you cant see it but will try to sub some pics of it when ive re-done it better.

This is a great outfit! It's nice to see a Champloo cosplay, its a very under rated/watched series. =/
I actually think the material looks awesome, it's refreshing to see an outfit like this that isn't made out of that thin synthetic fabric!
