25th April 2011: Kimono Progress! + A problem It's only pinned here and needs some adjustments still (the back is like 10inches longer then the front because of where I drew the pattern on the fabric XD) and as you can see it doesn't cover the petticoat however, after having a huge hissy fit about it I've figured out how to fix that.

The Obi is also only held together by me. I'm tempted to remake this as even though I wanted it to be stiff and stand out, I don't like the foam any more, it makes me look even chunkier. So yeah, may be re-doing it.

I've never done anything like this before and didn't have a pattern to use so despite the petticoat malfunction I'm still pretty happy with it and will be fixing that bit soon~

28th March 2011: Material I've now got all the material I will need for this ^^
The store I get my fabric from had no nice Yellow fabric apart from a pretty shiny one so I've now bought all my fabric in the pretty shiny stuff so I shall be starting on it all once my petticoat arrives as I want to make it so it shows the bottom of it like with theirs :)
I've also already got the fur so I shouldn't have to buy anything else for this, super excited to start this ^^

It's looking really good so far.

But a bit of constructive criticism. The tulle petticoat you're using isn't really right for the costume, it makes it stick out too much. If you have time, you should instead make a three layered underskirt/petticoat out of mesh, as it gives the thickness and poofiness but it's softer and give the drapey effect the kimono has.

Looking great :-) I love the pattern you've replicated so well on the waist band and the fabric's lovely. Have fun making it!

@Newdles Thanks, I loved making the waist band <3

@Nixie The petticoat is actually made out of mesh unfortunately I don't have the time or money to make another one or buy a different one but I may try and get/make a different one for my Stocking cosplay as it's not really sitting properly either >.<
