I did this some time last year, but I never posted it cause I don't have internet at home poor, poor me. So, anywhoo... this was my first "clothing" sewing project,like I said, it's a costume for my nephew, who if you know Bleach does not even come close to having the same bodytype as Kenni, I guess you could say that he is the stretched out chibi form. ^_^;I did it without a pattern, and I think it came out pretty cool. You be the judge:
This is the back of the coat and the little white fabric on top is the sash, I actually counted all the little dots and doodads(which meant watching lots of Bleach)but I made my nephew paint those on, I think he did a pretty good job with that.
This is the front of the coat with the shirt underneath:
These are the socks, I couldn't resist trying them on; so cool, so cool.
These are the sandals, I made them out of cheapo sandals from wally-world, and an old rice bag that I had stashed away, like the pack rat that I am. The straps were made out of braided twine. These were my favorite. They make me so proud
This is a front shot of him wearing it, I made the patch out of an old wallet and some elastic. It was a bit of a pain, but I made it work eventually. Oh, and the choker, can't forget the choker.
Ah, the hair, it would have been a waste if it weren't for the hair. I took lots of practice, hairspray, and patience. There are exactly eleven spikes. I sewed the bells on.
Doesn't he look happy? This is the whole costume, I forgot to take a picture of the pant alone, but, eh.
All he was missing was his zanbakto and Yoirichi; I was going to do my hair light pink, but at the time it was blue, and it would have been a pain, as for the zanbakto, well, he couldn't carry THAT around in school!
