Kamiya Kaoru - Wedding Kimono

Kamiya Kaoru - Wedding Kimono - Rurouni Kenshin - Manga - Kaoru Kamiya
I'm so happy with how this costume turned out! I did it all by hand (kimono, obi, and hairbow), and it took about 3 months on and off to complete! The wig was a bit of a pain though...literally. I won Best Technical with this costume at MetroCon's costume contest, as well as a hall award, so I'm quite proud of it!

It's absolutely incredible that you sewed the entire costume by hand! O.O You must be very patient.

Fantastic job- it's always nice to see accurate Kaoru cosplayers. ^__^

WAH!!! i haven't been keeping up to date on you enough honey. That's AWESOME!!! I didn't even know Kaoru had a wedding outfit. How beautiful!! And the wig is quite nice indeed. It's styled perfectly. Oh, but how heart-tearing to have a costume for both but can't do both at the same time!! Whip out Adobe!! XD. I luv it <3

Thanks for all the comments! The wig is a Katie Bair wig, I did have to trim the bangs and the ponytail though and sew in adjuster pieces since it was way too big at first. ^^;

The obi fabric was embroidered when I bought it, it was golden and I dyed it with three colors; green, blue, and pink and used fabric marker for some of the ornate designs that you probably can't really see well in the photo to make it as accurate as possible to the artwork.

I am in love with that obi. Is it painted or embroidered? Either way, your technical skills are amazing.

When I saw the prep pictures I knew you'd kick butt with it. IMHO you look soo much better then even your Kenshin shots.
Great Job and I hope to see more of this costume in the future.
