Fast progress (Posted 13th June 2012)
Fast progress is fast. In three days, I managed to paint the dragon design on the sleeves, made the obi and painted it red. I also added the collar to the yukata so it's almost done!
I need to make the fukuro obi, which I have a slight idea of how to make it from scratch and keeping it simple.
I bought a Madoka pink wig too. Originally I was going to dye my white wig (used for a Disgaea Ninja), however it doesn't have enough hair to style...
For some reason, I can't add any of my progress photos on the journal nor the photos session...
Spray success! (Posted 10th June 2012)
The spray worked out better, there should have been a bit more pink but unfortunately it had ran out =/
Next will be painting the dragon design and making the obi.
Waste of resources, methinks (Posted 13th May 2012)
Dyed the fabric today and it isn't as red as I wanted it to be. Perhaps I had added too much water with the dye (I will upload photos at a later date). So this productivity is kind of wasting resources/time/money...
Prototype made and onwards to real thing (Posted 4th March 2012)
I decided to draft my yukata as I can't be asked to make patterns for it.
Yesterday I made a black prototype yukata (sleeves were too long) and managed to complete it in one day (productiveness for the win!)
Initial research (Posted 28th January 2012)
I was looking up tutorials on how to make yukatas. Luckily my sister was given a yukata from a friend, so I can reference from it ^___^
I figured buying cotton from the usual shops of Shepard's Bush. The cotton from Cloth House is very nice but it's very expensive >: Around £15 per metre or something...
