Costume Information

Cost : 60
Time Taken : 15 hrs

Hmmm, What can I say? =D I saw the OVAs of "Kara no Kyoukai" and fell in love with this character!

So anyway, I edited a kimono pattern for this costume, Changed the sleeves and length and what not, in an effort to make it fit under the leather jacket, but to no avail! I could get the jacket on on top, but it wasn't an easy fit :/ - I suppose if you cheated and made a fake kimono for underneath, that would help keeping the bulk down, so bear that in mind - also if you make this costume, you need to make the sleeves really small, not like normal kimono sleeves.

On the whole, this costume was really easy to make, so I didn't end up having any difficulties ~

I managed to get the boots I wore for about £13 off of ebay, they aren't perfect, but they do the job, and the jacket I got for about the same.

Oh! I did get the sash/obi thing the wrong colour though :/ I got confused with a character I have on my wall XD

Again, another one that wasn't recognised at Aya '.~oh well XD

How did I miss this at Aya! I've been waiting for someone to rock this costume, did you have Häagen-Dazs?

Yay pics! This was an awesome cosplay, what day did you wear this at Aya? I beggars belief that I missed you! :(

Are you thinking of wearing to any other cons any time soon?

I think I wore it for Saturday? =D Yes, I went to the pub quiz in it XD
lol I was wearing purple contacts on the day too @_@; But I got so hot in it I guess I kept on being changed throughout the day?

Um, I actually felt really uncomfortable wearing another cultures cultural dress. I felt really self conscious XD - like I didn't belong in it? It was a little strange XD After no one recognised I kinda retired it anyway lol =P I don't think I'll be wearing it again - took it as an excuse to leave it =P Might cosplay another character though XD;;;;

Although, if it would make you happy I'd be glad to re wear it some time? Or we could meet up? =3

I had really bad tunnel vision on the saturday (see my Rakshas cosplay) and consequently I missed quite a lot :(

I can kind of see what you mean about wearing kimonos, but as my first costume was a kimono i'm used to it now ;)

You don't have to wear it again if you don't want to, but I'll know I can talk to Keroberos all about Kara no Kyoukai at ame though XD
