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 Cry

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!


If The Flintstones has taught us anything, it's that pelicans can be used to mix cement.

THANK YOU FOR DOING THE BELLS IN THE HAIR. It's really not Kenpachi without them. Cheesy
Great job on the rest of the costume too.

On a swapping hiatus due to college...

Woohoo! Cosplay! Great job. I've made Gin's costume for a friend and I didn't think to take pictures.  Sad I hope that your nephew appreciated all the work you did for him. I'll take his expression as him getting into character. Tongue
