|Loved this desgin awhile ago when I first saw it, then got distracted with other things an kinda forgot about it. eternal_aranel recently put this up on here and after seeing/hearing it I once again fell in love with the desgin. I gained a extra day at expo recently and had no plans so thought why not? ^^~ |
Tho no ones going to recozice me as Len and probaly keep thinking I'm gakupo or something I hope I can pull this off ok~

Kimono base done. Obi started tho its going to be small due to the beltage thats got to go on top. Mask arrived yesterday.... its bigger than my head and smells funny XD gonna wash and re-paint it this weekend. Chocker is made. And now plan to remake leathery arm thing so that it stays up. Still to do - Style wig + wig bow/tassle, undertop, obi bow + ribbons, remake leather arm, make shoe belts, find/make sword.

Wig ordered. Mask ordered. Belts ordered. Kimono fabric arrived Sat and pattern was cut out. Not 100% on the pattern on the fabric and its not as bright as I wanted but hopefully it'll work. Its an odd messurement for a yard (way more legnth then width)which has made cutting out the pattern really hard, and its going to have wonky sleeves due to not having enoght fabric but it should'nt notice as one arm is never ever worn. Second arm sleeve thingy is half way made. I used a wet look lycra I had laying around, it gives me alotta sretch but dosent stay in place on my shoulder. Not too sure about it atm, may remake using a diff material. Also painted a floural desgin on the gold I was planning to trim the obi bow and ribbons with, but after putting two of the ribbons together and seeing the resullt I really dislike it so that iders now been ditched.
