Winter photoshoot! I'd like to get mine done by winter for that exact same reason ^^ I wanted to do a fall shoot because of the leaves but that's probably not going to happen. Too much to do for Halloween XD

Hi guys!

I've been cosplaying a lot from Hakuōki this year.. more or less to every con pretty much, oops. xD I've upgraded my Hijikata cosplay, aka started using colored contacts for cosplay as well as bought a new wig and found a dark purple vintage kimono. I still plan to make an oni mask as an extra prop but I guess that will have to wait for next year. I made a shinsengumi banner though! I can't wait to bring it with me to a con!

I've also cosplayed Saitō again earlier this year and last month I debuted my rasetsu!Hijikata cosplay. I plan to make rasetsu versions of other characters in the future as well, likely Saitō next year.
Also last weekend I threw together the Sweet School Life version of Hijikata for a small local anime event. So yeah, been a lot of Hakuōki this year but I regret nothing! The best part is that I still have one con left for this year in November that I have planned to cosplay Ibuki at. One of my friends will rewear her Kosuzu cosplay there (she just needs to fix her okobo and combs because they broke at another con earlier) so we should be able to have a photoshoot! Now I just hope I will have time to make waraji..

Ooh, a Hakuōki thread! <3
*ahem!* I'd love to cosplay as Hijikata and Western!Okita if I could overcome the fact that I look more like Heisuke than...er, anyone/everyone else. orz
But I am planning an SSL!Saitō cosplay sometime next year, hopefuly. And I don't know if he actually has glasses, but I'll wear 'em anyway! I really want to cosplay as someone with glasses, IDK why... :P

@Blood_Sword,
Oh my God! That banner is epic!! XD
And not to sound creepy or anything, but I read your blog quite a bit! How do you manage to keep your sanity whilst in kimono? Doesn't it shift, and move, and derp all the time?
Is it just a matter of getting used to kimono? Or a ton of safety-pins and velcro?

Thanks.
Well, for most of my Hakuōki cosplays I'm actually wearing authentic kimono (Saitō, Hijikata and Kondō for example) and well, I do dress in kimono as a hobby so I'm used to wearing them and know how to move in kimono without having it going everywhere. xD But yeah, most times it's okay as long as the kimono is wide enough, aka so that it doesn't split at your feet while you walk.
So yeah, it's about getting used to wearing kimono, I never use safety pins or anything.. especially not because a good majority of my vintage kimono are silk and I don't want to damage them.

No problem! And thanks you for answering!
I just got to get used to it, huh? ><" My kimono is also vintage, but it seems too wide, if that's possible, and it stinks to high Valhalla...so I'm not too torn up about damaging it. Eeh, it's still gonna kill me though, I'm very sentimental towards anything from my home country. And yes, I've been airing the kimono out since I got it. (3-4 months)
Hah! Now I have an legit excuse to cosplay on Halloween!!! XP

Off topic: Don't know if you remember me, but I'm KuronoRei on deviantArt, and I still think you're one of the best Hakuōki cosplayer I've ever seen. XD

Too wide seems kinda... rare to me. I only ever hear of people complaining about vintage kimono not being wide enough. Oh, and about the smelling issue I would highly recommend you to check out the Immortal Geisha forums, there's a lot of knowledgeable kimono enthusiasts there and lots of information. Personally I've never gotten any of the stinky kimonos but I know someone else who hasn't been as lucky. xD

I had no idea it was you! Hahah thanks!

My Kosuzu is almost done! ='D I'm finishing up the last few details on my mountain of kimonos, which I have a pic of when I dressed my friend up in it to test some fit things and to see it together:

And now the wig and all the hair accessories are done!

Can't wait to finally get to cosplay this in 2 weeks! As well as my friend who is doing Senhime, I don't have any shots of her stuff though. @.@

Looks good!
It sure looks like a lot of work went into making this costume. I must also say that it's quite rare to see anyone cosplay Kosuzu.

By the way I will cosplay Ibuki at a con next weekend. One of my friends will do Kosuzu with me and I'm hoping for a photoshoot!

Thanks! Yeah several months of work trying to be as accurate as possible to kimonos and Kosuzu both! Yeah not many people do her but I guess with how little she's in the series I guess that happens.

I hope to see pics of you two!

Hello again guys!

I've recently ordered a wig for rasetsu!Saitō from eBay. I plan to cosplay the first season version this year (because I haven't made any western outfits yet) and I can't wait for the wig to arrive!
I might also end up cosplaying Sannan at the next con.. if I can get my twin to borrow me some of his cosplay parts that is. xD

Oh, and if anyone missed it I've uploaded pictures of my Ibuki cosplay now!
I still want to have a more proper photoshoot but I guess it will have to wait until spring; I'm not wearing this cosplay outside when it's almost -30 °C... just, no.

Do it, Hijikata is awesome!
I'm sorry. ;A; Thanks haha!

And for all the Okita cosplayers out there (and also whoever else might be interested) I just wanted to say that yesterday I had a cosplay day and went and tried out blood capsules, Okita edition of course! I made a blog post about it in my blog, with pics of course: http://valkoinensamurai.blogspot.com...-capsules.html

[EDIT] Never mind. Heisuke is on the back-burners because of his wig. (¬_¬)

@Blood_Sword,
Epic! Living up to your screen-name, eh? x)
