Costume Information

General
Cost : 100 pounds or 1000000 rupiahs (Indonesia Money)
Time Taken : one month, each pieces took 3-7 days. There is 10 pieces of Juni Hitoe

Description
It supposed to be Izayoi. But I want to make her like princess so I made Blue kosode, red nagabakama, dark blue hitoe, 4 layers of Uchigi, Pink Transparent Karaginue and Golden Mo ^___^ I admire Sensei Rumiko Takahashi's work. If you are notice, Izayoi has rainbow colours of Kimono (Juni Hitoe) ^^

The real measures of Juni hitoe 4 meter front and 4 meter back. I cut it half and became 2 meter front and 2 meter back. My Mo (back apron) is to short. I runt out budget and cloth. The golden Mo is Songket-tradisional Cloth from Sumatera.

I'll try to sewing them 3 days each of them. But I can not made it. Some times it took a week for 1 Kimono. The fast I can get is sewing for three days or two. I sew all of them with my hand and now all my fingers are cramped ;P

OMG...I already try the Juni hitoe. It so heavy and hot. Mine only had 8 layer, imagine the japanese women had to wear 22 layer of Kimono. OMG *_*
