I decided to go with the more historically accurate tutorial to make it and I compared it to the modern hakama my friend lent me, so much difference in amount of fabric. However, once I finish it I think it'll look pretty good.

I'm just crying over the fact I have to make another one for Hijikata. T_T
You mind linking me to the tutorial?

And I really wish I had something to work on. But I know my mom will get all ticked at me for always deciding to practice on the sewing machine late at night.....

I'm bored.

You could maybe practice posing or makeup techniques if you wish~

I really want to go out and get white fabric for Shigure's obi so he can be finished. I also need to find time to work on Syaoran's sword. I just need to sit down and start on it already!

Oh, true. I probably should practice posing because at a really tiny con (it was more of a marketplace) I felt my face randomly twitching when I was smiling for pics. (Tho that could have been because I was nervous and overstimulated..)

I read it about 3 times before I was able to condense it for the instructions only. It's just with the 'how to make' instructions is a 'history of the hakama' so it can be a bit confusing.

I just realized that I have a flamboyant pink kimono.
I'm so taking pics as Shigure wearing it for Valentines Day.
No one can stop me.

Had a brief conversation with The Group regarding cosplay plans for Fanime and pretty much decided upon nothing. Haha. We'll have a better idea when we all crunch numbers next weekend.

But seriously, watch more anime with like school uniforms or regular-ish clothed people, you'd be surprised how easy some costumes can be.
HAHAHA. You know what, you're right. I REALLY MUST BE FALLING IN LOVE WITH THE WRONG CHARACTERS. A LOT OF THEM DIE ANYWAYS. I SHALL GO FOR THE ONES I DISLIKE. (hahaha, yeah right, I probably can't do that)

HAHAHAHA. I promised myself to never do school uniforms (more like fukus) ever again. But I do agree though. Regularish clothed people are easier to make for because you can most likely just go to a thrift store and buy them. 8D LOL

I haven't been catch up with any new animes at all lately. I've been reading mangas and even then I haven't catch up with any other mangas. The only old ones I do keep reading are: Naruto, Oresama Teacher, Skip Beat, Kuroko no Baseket, and sometimes 'Say you Love me' plus Fairy Tail. >>;; THOUGH, YEAHHHH. Well when Sailor Moon comes out again, I'm totally watching that one. HAHAHAHA. Lately I play more video games than I watch anime/read manga now. >>;; Too busy with work to be able to do all of those three. *lesigh*

I hope you saw my earlier answer too a few pages back.. but I would go with the synthetic kimono if the color and everything else is right. Synthetic kimonos are easier to care for and you don't have to worry so much about ruining it at the con because it's easier to wash than silk.

Hahaha awesome. XD
Oh god.. are all those canon? I might have to show a Chizuru cosplayer I know these.. xD

Oh yes, I saw it - and thanks for the info about the collars! That didn't even occur to me! D:

That's true, it's just the weird selective nitpicker in me that's objecting. The one that says "You can't fabric paint the designs on Zelda's dress - fabric paint didn't exist in medieval time frames!" yet has no problem fabirc painting something else on the same costume. You know, the big ole hyprocrital nitpicker that lurks within the back of all cosplayer's brains somewhere. XD

The only thing that's throwing me off of jumping on it is the shipping cost. The shipping tag makes me want to flinch and heavily consider making one on my own. So now I'm going back and forth on it - which I really shouldn't seeing how fast kimono can go. Either way it will probably cost the same amount, one will just require a bit more work. STOP BEING SO INDECISIVE BRAIN.

Ah okay, good.

PFFFF hahaha I totally know what you mean! XD

What site is the kimono on and how much is the shipping and how much is the kimono itself? If you don't mind telling of course.
