28th July 2009: Done and Dusted! I loved making this! It was suprisingly easy to do after i thought it through a bit.
The biggest difficulty i had was making my hakama. Ok so they're not technically hakama as they're more parachute pants but they do the job well!
My favourite bit has to be the red lined haori! This bit was a labour of love. I could have left it white but i really wanted to add the accuracy. Precisely why is because i've foolishly pit myself against some pretty awesome costumes in the Aya cosplay competition. Well what can i say i gotta start somewhere!
