Fabric. (Posted 13th December 2011)
Pulled out my stores of silk and cotton fabric that I thought suitable for the project, and sorted through them. I have already made a couple of nagajuban, which are the next to the skin layer of the whole shebang. I have also recently bought online a couple of real Kimono from Japan to use as reference pieces for construction and finish, and bought a genuine Obi from Rakutan the online store in Japan, to use for this cosplay.
Beginning. (Posted 21st November 2011)
To be frank, I just fancy an excuse to do a Samurai costume, and came across these guys while doing research. I am picking Kondo as the char. because he was the leader of the group, when they were at their least moraly ambiguious. I already have a nearly finished unlined style Kimono in cotton.
