Costume Information

Description
There was a topic on the forums and someone is gonna be cosplaying as Aoba. I've been thinking for a while about cosplaying as Koujaku. I wasn't gonna do it this year, but I might as well do it when I can be part of a group.
I think it shouldn't take long to get this done. The main problems I think I will encounter is material that tints towards the edge and getting the pattern on so that it looks right and yay chest bandages. It makes my life a lot easier. I've already found a wig that is cheap and nice, so when I get some cash I can start getting this in motion and see if I get it done in time.

Your Koujaku looked so good! So much detail. I didn't get any photos of us on my camera where everyone's looking, so I'm glad you added one. :D

Your Koujaku was amazing - couldn't believe the amount of detail you put into your kimono! Thank you for taking photos with me (Sei) and my friend (the amazing Noiz). These photos are lovely!

Journal

wig (Posted 8th July 2013)

my wig finally arrived. Still got quite a bit to do on this costume. lets hope it's done in time.

Kimono (Posted 26th April 2013)

Got the Kimono started today. I'm still not sure if this is gonna be finished in time. I still need to find a way to gradient dye the fabric properly. My plan is to bleach the bottom of the Kimono and then dye it afterwards and finish off by hand painting the design, but I'm not sure how well it will turn out. I'm gonna pratice on a scrap piece of the fabric before hand so that I don't ruin the Kimono. If that doesn't work then I will have to think of another way to go about it.
