Geisha-esque Costume - Original Design





I wore this for a photoshoot, the corset and shoes were bought. The pattern I got that I made the kimono type top from could only cross over right over left which totally defies tradition and makes me a corpse O__ O But oh well, had I know that the pattern would be that way I would not have bought it or would have sewn it the other way around or something but I had only just started making clothes and didn't want to screw the entire thing up! The skirt pattern was simple enough. I had already made the choker (which was hand beaded so took a lot of time) as a craft project.

Items made: Kimono type top (the damn thing that is backwards XD), skirt, choker

Gorgeous costume! I like the makeup and hair too, it all goes together nicely.
