Description

I made this in my last year of college (high school) 2008. It was meant to be a cosplay (costume play) of Yuuko a character in the mange (comic) xxxHolic, but the kimono was not really like something the character would wear so we decided to simply use it as a kimono and not really associate it with the character.

Material Notes

the lining is a random fabric my friend and client wanted me to use, the exterior fabric is a Japanese cotton

    I agree, it’s awsome! I love kimonos (and everything from Japan).
