Yukata's at conventions??

I'm wanting to get a solid pink yukata with a red obi.
I know they sell them at the vendors who set up at different conventions.

Does anybody happen to know the names of them or thier websites??
If not, anyone know where I could buy one online in those colors??

It'd be a big help! thanks!

There are many vendors on Ebay that sell yukata, although finding a solid one is going to be hard. Because they're casual summer-wear yukata are usually patterned. It might be easier to just make one if you need plain pink.

Sarcasm-hime is right, It's going to be hard to find a solid pink one, near impossible actually. Are you sure it HAS to be solid? There are a lot of pretty pink ones out there that just have a little bit of pattern on them.

Thank you for the replies!

No, it does'nt have to be a solid pink.
Just something that isnt TOO over the top with floral designs or what not on it.

In that case, here!

Since you wanted very little pattern, this is the one I would recommend:

You won't find solid white kimono or yukata except for brides or dead people, so you'll have to make it. Fortunately yukata and unlined kimono are easy; the best pattern is at folkwear.com.

If you want to make your own men's Yukata, and you can read Japanese, the following link from eBay has a pattern for sale that should be able to give you a guide: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sewing-Patte...41849761509645.

Again, the directions are in Japanese, but you can make men's and women's Yukata with your own fabric from this pattern if you want.

I have used the folkweak pattern to make my Bleech cosplay and have found it easy to work with.
