Wow my first tutorial. Triggered by a "How to put on a BLEACH cosplay" question asked on cosplay.com.
I hope it's helpful. If it is, please let me know! (I can't know if no one comments/favs). I'm looking to do more tutorials in the future, so if there's something you'd like to see, lemme know!
EDIT: fixed poor word choices and some sentences they may have not made sense/were confusing.
EDIT2: edit: All right! People have been asking me what patterns I used for this cosplay and where they can find them.
For the kosode (kimono top), I used Butterick B4072 which they don't seem to have on their site anymore. But this = www.tias.com/stores/joespaper/…
is what the pattern looks like for the picture reference. As long as it's a top that looks similar to that (model in the upper left hand corner), you should be fine. I extended the pattern length wise as you can see in the tutorial above.
For the hakama, a friend of mine gave me the pattern, but then I lost it. But thankfully someone else linked me to 4chan where they had the pattern uploaded. And since it's probably not there anymore, I have it uploaded here = www.mediafire.com/download.php…
for you to download. It's a PDF file and also, it deals with a lot of math, but it works!
