Et Voila! (Posted 2nd November 2008)
Well all is finished... ish! But I'm still very happy with the results! I felt I did really well to say I did not have enough fabric (at least half a metre short) so the fact that this materialised was through cheating techniques, taking short cuts ans sheer will power. Halloween is a cosplayer's worst enemy! If you squint in the pics I also did not have white tabi, making them with limited white cloth proved impossible so I had to dig around in my drawers for a black pair of those cute tabi socks you could get from Muji (i miss that shop!). Black proved the only colour I pick out of black, red, orange or green. I also didn't have time to make the sword and wanted to compromise by doing a long fake cut across my head where O-Ren gets scalped, but that looked crap so I gave up and just enjoyed the fact that I was in a kimono shuffling through Manchester!
