Very lovely dynamic shot such a perfect capture of Shiro's costume flying in movement *o*
Photo taken at Connichi 2012 in Germany <3

Kimono pattern made by kuroru in Corel and printed in special workshop. Kimono sewn by me.

Koi hat draft made in Corel too and cut with industrial electrical milling machine. All separated parts of the hat are made of PVH plastics - something like ABS but way cheaper and lighter. Then I used some sandpaper to smoothen rough sides and painted several layers and kuroru glued them together in one peace.

All Chinese knots are handmade by kuroru. Also, she embroidered about 200 jingle-bells. Wooden geta made by me. I hope to show them on upcoming photos.

This is the most original cosplay of Shiro in this outfit <3
I'm very VERY impress in the kimono pattern. It's exactly the same! 
I can see that you guys put many many afford and love into this whole costume. The pattern, jingle-bells, knots, hand bracelets, EVERYTHING ! Just perfect <3 <3

Love this whole thing. Very very awesome and stunning cosplay (y)

Btw, how do you make the kimono pattern? Must be took lots of time to make it. Anyway, good job!!

wow thank you so much for your lovely comment! finally someone mentioned fabric print, we can't be more happy! XD

It's the smallest thing we can do to show our love to the character and his story. Thank you for noticing all details of the outfit ;__;

Kimono pattern was made in Corel and printed in special workshop. As far as I remember it took about a week. The hardest part was to dispose and put all the flowers together on the draft in the way they won't overlap each other on the different parts of kimono. I had to make a digital pattern of the whole kimono and we started to place the pattern on it, so after the fabric was ready I just cut it into previously settled pieces and sewn it in the right order. Sounds simple yeah XDD

omg beautiful cosplay! I was wondering, how do you keep the hat in place (like whats under there to have it sit on your head?) and for the fabrics hanging from the hat, how was that placed?

I'm planning to do a shiro cosplay too! So this really helps as great reference!

oh it's really hard to explain, but under the hat there're some ribbons and pins attached to the head. idea will come to you after the hat is ready. you need to come up with decision based on its weigh and size. It's cosplay, use your imagination and creativity!

It's better to use an original pic as a reference XD
