Thanks!! I'm kind of excited to be making something so self indulgent, I don't usually do projects like this hahah

I'm super happy with the photos we took but when I've looked back it's a little embarassing that my juban shows like this under the sleeves... The cosplay looks good otherwise, and I doubt anyone notices or cares, but someone who knows anything about kimono might think this is awful haha sobs The photos are gonna be shown in the Utena fashion zine that's coming out at the end of this month... I'll post them here after that!

Kimono Notes

I went with a design where I could use mostly parts of other costumes/my old yukata stuff for this (the juban + hakama + the yellow obi), but ofc i still need to make a really dumb cow-print kimono. Because I'm only going to be wearing this with a hakama, I decided to cut it short rather than make it a kimono that would need ohashori so it's only 150cm long. It's also less to try fit under the hakama, which I cut a bit shorter in the Taisho Roman style (for Takiko from FY). The collar is double width (unlike my Nora yukata) and folds over so that I can add the dateeri, which was made from scrap green fabric and some fabric for an upcoming CCS cosplay: http://kidorakujapan.com/know/women_accessory_dateeri.html I designed the sleeves to be a bit long, but not full length furisode. See under ko-furisode here: https://maihanami.wordpress.com/2016/02/20/types-of-kimono-furisode/ Something I noticed, and should have thought of earlier though, is that my juban was made for Nora from Noragami, who doesn't have furisode-length sleeves! This means I have to hide the juban's sleeve length by pinning it so it doesn't show from behind. In the future I should make another red juban with furisode-length sleeves for this and my Kalluto furisode, which actually also had this problem, since I used the same juban for that as well... If I'm not too lazy, I should probably re-make both Kalluto and Nora at some point, because I've learned a lot from making so many kimono e_e;;
