Chapter 116 / Episode 40 kimono
Last Updated: 11-26-2011
My fifth cosplay.
This costume is the one Ukitake is seen wearing in the manga at chapter 116, "White Tower Rocks", after Aizen has been killed. On episode 40 in the anime he is seen wearing something similar enough.
Here's a reference: http://i3.mangareader.net/bleach/116/bleach-11371.jpg
Yukata and haori made by me. Black kaku obi is authentic and bought from ebay from a Japanese seller.
I debuted this cosplay at Närcon 2011 in Linköping, Sweden. I only wore this on Thursday (the first con day) and I guess not many people recognized who I was supposed to be, obscure outfits go go! lol
I think I can count how many recognized me on one hand. Or two, maybe.
There was only one girl (MissAngie) who knew I was Ukitake without me having to give a hint or something, she made my day. It was late and I was just random walking down one of the corridors when she came towards me and just shouted out "Ukitake!" at me.
But the best reaction was much earlier outside when I passed by one of the "free water guys". He asked me "Do the samurai want some water?" to which I replied "Yes, but I sadly don't have any bottle with me" and then he said it's okay to drink anyway. Oh well, he then asked me who I was cosplaying and I said that I was Ukitake, but in a not-well-known outfit and he went along the lines of "Hey damn, it's those clothes he has when he's sick, isn't it? No wonder why you reminded me so much of him." xD
I've cosplayed Jūshirō Ukitake at:
2011 • Närcon in Linköping, Sweden.
2011 • Tracon in Tampere, Finland.
2015 • Nerdcon in Umeå, Sweden.
