It worked well :3
Sorry, I'm pretty hard core about Miroku, I got kinda sick of seeing him done wrong, or lazy looking! :3 <3 <3 <3
And one more note on the leggings. >.> you could do shin guards instead, like they claim they are, but why not just make or buy teal stretch pants? I guess since I'm a girl, it worked for me, but I like having things under my robes XD
And now my picture: Attachment 34965
<-- >< Bad quality, but they look like leggings :3 Ultimately, it's up to the cosplayer :3
That wrapping thing never worked for me, it looked too sloppy, and I tried it several times. It probably is the most accurate way to tie it all into one piece, but it never looked good when I did it. Also, I somehow find it hard to believe that his kesa is cut that way... I think I will go for the looks instead of the functions of the kesa when I make mine.
Heh, when it comes to whatever he wears under the robes; don't you think he wears shin guards instead of leggings? I don't think leggings were invented back then. XD
