There are several types of kimono’s. For men, for women, seasonal, for kids, funeral, wedding, casual, offical, etc. I’ve made three maiko kimono with matching obi, because I wanted to ^^
For the kimono I’ve used this website: http://kurokami-kanzashi.deviantart.com
I’ve made an maiko obi, about 6 mtr long and 33 cm wide.

Oh, the wig? I’ve made it all by myself. Bought five wigs, all black. Stripped four and sewn the hairpieces into the fifth. With a lot of hairglue I’ve shaped the hair. The kanzashi, hair ornaments, are also based on the website of kurokami-kanzashi. Tutorials are copy-right free, but it’s polite not to steal.
