Hey peeps, I wanted to do a cosplay of my favorite Tengai Mkyo chara, Kabuki Denjirou.

I need some help trying to figure what exactly this beautiful man is wearing, particularly the green and blue outerwear. I was wondering if it was some sort of Yukata or Happi or Men's Kimono but I'm not sure because the short sleeved upper-wear seems connected to the wavy bits on his left and right. I don't remember what the name for the white thing tying back his short sleeves are called. I also have no idea if the red half a skirt is a half a Hakama or something else altogether.



I know I need sashimonos, a black and red shitagi, some sort of arm bracers, kyahan for my legs, and some outrageous okobo.

If anyone can help me figure out the rest or point me to a section or person that can I'd appreciate it! Thank you :D

I'd like to help but the pictures don't show up to me. It's like there's just spaces, no photos. Care to fix that?

I'm pretty sure the red thing is just an open red kimono under a green patterned happi with longer than normal sleeves. It almost looks like a women's haori with those long sleeves!

It's a haori, probably a woman's, with thigh-length sleeves. The collar and lower hem have an added black band. The sleeves are tied back with a tasuki, and here's a how-to: [url][/url]

The haori is tied closed with a red heko obi or something sewn directly to the haori. It's worn over a red juban that's tied at the waist--otherwise the overlap at the neck would look different--and the juban is left to hang open below that.
