Unfortunately, I haven't been taking many pictures of this costume as I've been making it. I have some pretty decent progress made, I just need to assemble everything.
This is a placeholder post for my to-do list :)
This is really my only good progress picture so far... I am the worst kind of person.
Finally have more time to work on this cosplay, remembered to take pictures this time, hehe.
Testing the placement for Yuukko's obis. I purchased this red hanhaba obi on eBay to save myself some time and when I got it my first though was "aww, it's so pretty... I'm gonna feel bad destroying it. *cuts in half*"
Here are the bells I put on the red hanhaba obi. Ironically in my reference there are 3 sets of 8 bells and 1 10, so it looks like an accident.
It's strangely hard to get an image of a striped hakama for a 6'4" man. Both flash and without look kind of strange... Almost done with it though, just gotta make the band and hem it.
-Make outer kimonos
-Hem under kimono
-Attach all the obis together
