Tutorial: How to tie a obi

By Hanatsuki89
I've always found it difficult to make a obi bow, so since I finally understood the way of doing it...I decided to make a tutorial so that everyone can learn XD
And yes, I know that there are other tutorials about this around the Internet and DA...
I hope you'll like it and understand it :)
I had a lot of fun taking the photos and preparing the tutorial, so if you have some requests about tutorials (mainly regarding cosplay), tell me^^

(I put the copyright thing because of the photos)

Hi! Sorry for the late answer ^^;
Mine is about 3,50 metres long, but you can shorten or lenghten that measure depending on how big you want the bow to be :)

Hello ! I'm thinking of making my own obi for a Yukata-like cosplay I'm making, and I'd like to know how long and how large a real obi is. ^-^

Hi! Sorry for the late answer!
Well, the obi for women is usually around 30 cm wide and over 4 metres long :)

Oh great! My Mom and dad wanted to wear their kimonos on some kind of Japan-Party for my cousin's bachelor. But we had no idea how to tie these things.

It's kinda difficult the first times you do that (I had to practice a lot to mnage to tie it in a decent way :D ). Hope this tut will be useful and easy to follow :)

Ci ho messo ore a capire come diavolo annodarlo XD E ai primi tentativi il fiocco pareva un aborto della natura da quanto era fatto male X°D
Grazie :)
