Hozuki no Reitetsu
DescriptionMy friends have been cosplaying this show for a while, and recommended that I'd probably look good as Okou... And her costume looked like a lot of fun to sew, so I decided to give it a try! My first time sewing an entire costume from scratch while in Japan!
Fabrics for the kimono were found pretty easily in Nippori, and I re-used my Simplicity pattern from Yukina with some alterations. The red geta and black horn hair-clips I found on e-bay, and the earrings and other hair accessories were made using thermoplastic.
Materials for the snake plushies I bought at Yuzuwaya. I had to make my own pattern, figuring it out as I went, but they turned out surprisingly good!
I first wore this for a studio photoshoot with friends on April 1st, 2018, and plan to wear it for some other events (maybe Ikebukuro Halloween?) later this year.
