Costume Information

Cost : 0
Time Taken : 3 weeks

I started watching Bleach straight after Christmas this year, and I've just finished watching it all the way through. Since I live in France, I'm behind on these things, so it was a whole new thing to me. Ishida was pretty awesome back at the beginning, although admittedly they've been ignoring him and the others as lost causes for a while. I though - well, Ishida is awesome in his fight with Mayuri, and the costume seemed like enough of a challenge - I don't like making things which are easy, I think - so I went for it.

I started with the hakama, which were superbly easy to make, although they aren't right yet and I have to go back and repleat them. Then the kimono part, which has just been impossible. Unfortunately I got black paint splotched on it while I painted on the design on the sleeve, so I have to remake the hardest part - but at least I know what shape it is now.

The armour ended up surprisingly easy in the end - the shoes were done in a single evening, and the bow is in the middle of being painted - so I will update when all these things are done, and the costume is ready to be worn. Not long now!
