This is the kimono that C.C. wore at the very beginning of Code Geass, and was also described in the audio dramas. This kimono is unexpectedly cool, even during summer conventions. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough fabric to make an ohashori, that usually defines a female kimono. The obi on this costume is actually very long and I tried to learn to tie it like a real obi. After the disaster with my last fake obi for cosplay, I wanted to try tying this one for real, and it feels like it holds better this way. The sunflowers are hand-painted with artist-grade acrylic paint---which stays after washing, just as well as fabric paint.
