How I made the costume--->> [link]

NO PHOTOSHOP!!!!! (except watermark & slight contrast tuning)

This costume was supposed to debut at Philippine June ToyCon 2011 but couldn't =(

Anyway, this costume was much more complicated than I had originally expected! And it all started because I wanted to try doing a Fox-girl and because Zakuro is kick ass xD. Must.Stop.Liking.Tsunderesssss.

Highly inspired by :iconkanasaiii: and Monique (PH geisha girl ^_^!), I was determined to make Zakuro's Kimono as realistic as possible. So I spent a lot of time researching and ensuring the cut and materials used was as close as it could be (of course my polyester Cotton are far from authentic Japanese fabric but I tried =/ )

But the fact was this is Cosplay and I'm not skilled in the wearing of authentic Kimonos and I had to make a few alterations. Like how authentic Kimonos are a single piece but mine is a 2 piece with the ends of the top folded in to mimic real Kimonos.

I can go on and on about the anger I had with the costume and I haven't even started on the Obi!
