The lower half of a shinigami uniform commission I just completed for wuffwuff.
This is front and back views of the hakama. The only way I could take somewhat decent photos of it was to stand my ironing board on its end and wrap the himo around the board to keep everything held up.
The hakama are made of black cotton twill and white cotton sateen. Cotton is not my fabric of choice for hakama, but it's more familiar to people and easier to take care of than linen.
There are 6 pleats in front, 2 in back.
The overall construction is very similar to the hakama I made for my Byakuya costume, but with a few improvements.
