Costume Information

Description
EVERY VERSION OF LEN.

With Whiteraven as Kaito and eternal_aranel as Luka.

This is my current favourite Vocaloid song, and one of my favourite outfits. So I'm making my first attempt at a kimono. We'll see how that ends. XD

UPDATE: Loved wearing this at Ayacon, so comfortable, but the kimono is falling apart a little. I'll likely rewear it for Kitacon, after fixing it up a little, making new shorts (the originals have been sacrificed to my Togetic, and making a velcro-attaching bandage binding rather than dealing with wrapping them round myself and them constantly falling down and rolling up through the day.

Thanks, IndecisiveTrollop and KiraraYumi. I'm really happy with how this has turned out so far. ^_^

SO EXCITED FOR THE GROUP. Also planning more cosplays I can drag a Kaito into. XD He'd be bored without us!

Journal

Shorts (Posted 5th June 2011)

After a night with friends where we decided to make this a group with Luka and Kaito and Laura made two kimonos in one night, I finished the shorts off. So that's everything but the footwear sorted.

Getting there... (Posted 3rd June 2011)

Slowly but surely, it's coming along. I need to sew down the trim still, but other than that, the kimono part is pretty much done. ^_^ Not the best photo, but I'll take a better one when it's completely done. Much happier about the colour now it's all together.

Progress, hooray. (Posted 26th May 2011)

So, after the horrendous bright yellow material that the sewing machine ate up, I'm onto my second attempt, and have finished the sleeves. Still need to be closed up at the bottom, and before that, actually attached to the rest of the kimono, but I need to make the rest of it first. >_> Entirely hand-sewn because OH GOD THE SEWING MACHINE IS TERRIFYING.

Unfortunately, I'm liking the colour I picked for this less and less every time I look at it.

My wig also arrived today, but until I stop sucking at taking photos of myself wearing it, there will be no photos.
