This is probably THE hardest costume I have ever done, not to mention the most expensive. Making the props and the armor was the most difficult part, but I think they turned out relatively well. I also had to learn how to make the kimono tops and the pants, as well as the process of applique in order to attached all of the designs. The belt was hand painted and the designs all made and cut out individually.
