costume progress... [Mar. 2nd, 2011|06:02 pm]

Wow, I'm still working on the costume. Last night I tweaked the pattern (really just figured out how much smaller to make the sleeve and keep the rest of the jacket the same), today I got some tiger stripe camo for the jacket. It's an extra wide fabric, so it's possible that I can squeeze two jackets out of the four yards purchased, no promises until I measure stuff out. The only reason I'd do two is that i could do the first with black trim and use it with the existing black hakama. And maybe make a matching one for Kiyan at ConQuest.

I'm also thinking about renaming the project the Combat Kimono rather than the Camo Kimono. The only problem with this would be remembering to call it by the new name. I'm also considering epaulettes to hold a combat X harness in place, but that can be added after the entire thing is done as extra embellishment.

I also got some mosquito netting for another project experiment, but that's after the Combat Kimono is done. Tonight I'll finish the prep work by prewashing the fabric and figuring out how much I need for a single jacket.

And I still think you should rename your other to the Cowmono.

The cowmono is the ankle length kimono. The jacket and hakama is Samurai Moo. But Camono I like.

I thought you made a kimono in cow print as well. Oh well.

How about Samoorai and Camono.
