1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Re: Samurai Outfit for Renaissance Faire on: November 17, 2007 01:57:01 PM
what pattern did you use, i am a member of a japanese household in the sca, (if that doesnt make sense to you, just overlook it) and my stitch and bitch group and i lovingly refer to hakama as "origami pants" and they take 3 of us one day, 5-6yrds of fabric, 1/2 spool of thread, a can of starch,and a stick of chalk to complete!
i now feel like i have someone to share our pain...
you did such a fantastic job!
 Shocked cant believe you did'm by yourself!
I used a pattern from Folkwear (http://www.folkwear.com/151.html). It was really easy to follow, considering that it was the first time I've used a pattern to make my costumes.

It's really cool that you're in SCA! I've been wanting to join, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Sorry about the wonky picture... my dad was testing out his new wide angle lense, and I was REALLY tired. I've got to start working on costumes earlier than I do.

The kimono top, hakama (pants) and kataginu (the tan... thing. I'm not quite sure how to decribe it!) took about three days for myself and my mum to make. I did the hakama and kataginu (with some help for measuring things), while she did my top. It was my first time making a Japanese outfit, and came out wonderfully (at least I think so!)

I also have a bamboo stick that I purchased at Hobby Lobby, a carp kite from an asain gift store, straw sandals from Walmart, and large socks (they worked fairly well as tobi)

Anyway... I'd love to hear about your costumes!

For some reason, I'm having a REALLY hard time knitting and purling in the same row. Does anyone happen to know a good website that explains it? It looks fairly simple, but keeps coming out knotted!

I just finished the article, I'll post it as soon as I can.

By the way, The Wichita Eagle (my homwtown newspaper) just did an article on Matthew Vines, better known as the creator of Veritaserum.com, who I happen to go to school with. Check out the article and his blog!
