Becoming bandagetastic

Wrapping the bandages doesn't take much time, it's the sewing them down that takes a while! YouTube taught me how to bandage around the hips. XD

Yukata progress

Excuse the use of my dressing gown tie, I haven't made the obi yet. :P Not much to say about this... I followed a yukata pattern I found online and it didn't take too long. It seemed pretty authentic - at least in the way that there are no shoulder seams. The neckline had to be hand-hemmed, but the rest of it was just top-stitched. I need to take the sleeves up a bit more, but I'll wait until I have the gloves. A lot of Shishio's gloves are supposed to be visible, so having the gloves ready will let me see how much shorter the sleeves should be. The material is sheet cotton. Yukatas are supposed to be cotton, and sheet cottons are really wide which helps a lot because of the no-shoulder-seams business meaning you need a really big piece of fabric. The colour is a close enough shade I think. Actually I don't know what Shishio's colours should be in the manga version; Watsuki had it black in the manga panels and I don't remember seeing any coloured illustrations. The anime had it a brighter purple than this maybe? But to be frank I prefer the purple I've chosen. I'm not much of a fan of the colour choices in the anime in general. Plus this purple looks more evil. >D
