Ahoy there everyone!
I decided to make this tutorial out of sheer boredom. I'm not sure if it will be of any use but comments/critiques are welcomed!

How to Wear a Hakama (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/36264377/)

I did this for helping fellow martial artists and cosplayers :D
I can also make tutorials on how to tie an obi (For men) and how to "wear" a katana.

Ooh, very nice! ^_^ But what would be a big help is to either shrink the image down a little bit or seperating it so we don't have to scroll back and forth to see the picture ^_^ But other wise, very nice! :D (I finally figured out what that plastic/bone thing they were talking about in the pattern was for XD)

Here (http://home.tiscali.be/fenicia/tutoral/hakama02/hakama02e.htm) is an other tutorial on pitting on a hakama like they do at Martial Arts and in Japan. ;) :bigtu:

Do martial artists not wear obi under their hakama?

There's actually a very specific way to cross the himo when you're bringing them around in the front, and a very specific way to tie if you're tying it men's formal way (the little bow that looks like a cross).

If you're just dressing up, though, those are both decent tutorials.

If you're a woman, though, I highly recommend wearing the hanahaba obi with your hakama in order to get the right drape.
