I've been working on these for a while now.  they are meant for LARPing for myeslf and my friend Cherries-pop, whos tumblr account is http://cherriespop.tumblr.com/

Anyhow, onto the kimonos







My kimono is based off of the My Little Pony character Twilight Sparkle for the designs.





I also borrowed Cherries-pop's obi for the pics cause mine isn't quite done yet.  However, its not about the obi for this post. 

I'm sure my tying techniques will get better the more I practice

Not quite as accurate as an actual kimono, but still very cute~

As much as I would love to make a more accurate one, these are for a game where they are likely to get either dirty, damaged, or both.  Also, I would love a kimono set for my size, but I also just don't have the funds for either high end cotton or silk with a proper obi.

However, I am really happy with my first attempts at even a costume one.

No justifications needed...I think you did a great job on both.  Is that embroidery or applique on the blue one and did you add that yourself?

Cute! Did you use a pattern or did you just wing it? Love the colors.

Sorry I havent answered in a while....its been busy

I used a pattern, but realized even the largest size for the pattern didnt quite look right on me...so i did tweak it slightly
