Bleach shinigami outfit

I was once asked to explain how to draw kimono. Well, here it is.
I desided to start from samurai outfit and take Bleach shinigami clothes as the example. (Maybe I'll draw female kimono later.)
Of course it's a very generilised uniform. Search i-net for more types of japanese traditional clothing if you are interested in specifics.

It's the same for girls, except for fundoshi. Fundoshi is traditionally men's underwear (I included them, because we've seen it in the anime), I suppose women wear suteteko. 
You can add chest bandaging if you want. Rangiku doesn't bother though.

This should be added by all cosplay costume sellers so that we don't have trouble wearing it. This just helped me with my hisagi cosplay costume.
