Misako "Mama" Kurata
Maro's Windmill House
Last Updated: 02-15-2010
This is the first costume where I actually took the time to finish all my seams! Normally the outside looks fine, but the inside? Let's just say I'm afraid to throw them in a washer. It took a while, but I'm really happy I did. It gives it that extra touch that my other costumes don't have.
I tried really hard to get all the pieces of a kimono right (minus some of the unseen undergarments). I'm unhappy with some of my material choices, but besides that, I don't think I could have made it much better. It was fun wrapping my sis up in the obi!
The windmill was more last minute than it should have been, but still didn't turn out too mad. Luckily Maro turned out great, and he got to sit in front of it and maybe detract a little attention away from it, haha.
Overall there are a few things I'm a little disappointed with, but I'm still fine with the end result. It's a fun costume, so we hope to have more headpieces in the future!
