One of my favorite costumes so far. I was so excited when I didn't need to buy any patterns for it, just used stuff I found online. Japanese clothes are so easy to sew because everything is done in a straight line. The shoes were some of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn, and their made out of cut up place mats. I do wish they would stay tied though. Even though I'm wearing multiple layers this costume was still really cool even in the Baltimore heat.
