Hakuōki: Shinsengumi Kitan

Last Updated: 04-01-2014

I actually like most of the characters in Hakuōki so I cosplay many of them. Saitō is one of my main three favorites (Hijikata and Okita being the two other ones) and I've been told my personality is a lot like his by friends (silent, kinda loner but kind to those who he cares about) and I'm also left-handed so it was not a hard choice to make. xD

The shinsengumi haori is commissioned by my friend Hasakitsuki's mom (thank you!) because I just didn't have time to make it myself in time. The swords are from eBay for the same reason. The black kimono is an actual vintage piece.. one of my other hobbies happens to be kimono kitsuke. The scarf is the same one I made for my Byakuya Kuchiki cosplay.


Debuted at Uppcon XII in Uppsala, Sweden on 17th June, Sunday. It was comfortable to wear and some people recognized who I was even though it seems Hakōuki isn't as known in Sweden as it seems to be in Finland.. I could be wrong though.


I've cosplayed Saitō at the following cons:
2012 • Uppcon in Uppsala, Sweden.
2012 • Animecon in Kuopio, Finland.
2012 • Närcon in Linköping, Sweden.
2013 • Desucon in Lahti, Finland.
2013 • Oulun Animeseminaari in Oulu, Finland.
2014 • Cosvision in Turku, Finland.
2014 • Tracon in Tampere, Finland.
2015 • Skecon in Skellefteå, Sweden.
