My friend and I bought the same amount of fabric, though she's the only one who's actually made the outfit. She's about 5'...2", maybe, and her 3 yards worked pretty well.


3 yards for what- the whole thing??

Yes, was that the whole costume or 3 yards for each part?

Anyway, I kinda had in my head that maybe 2 yards each for the black top (don't know what exactly it'd be considered 0_o) and inside white lining, 3 for the hakamas, and 4 for the haoris.... Should I use more for anything? Less? Ideas are welcome ^_^

I do believe she used the 3 yards for the entire costume. Though, she did cheat quite a bit in the process - not making a full kimono, etc. I remember she told me she was a little disappointed in her hakama - so to be safe, I'd go with 5 yards if you're about her height.

Also, my friend made my haori-thingy early for me, so she could wear it on Halloween. We bought only 1 yard of the white fabric, and she made good use of it. Barely had enough, if I remember what she said correctly. I'm about 5'0", maybe a little less, and the haori came down to about midcalf.

It's looking more likely that if I don't go as Urahara, then I'll be seen as Hitsugaya. The assembling of the costume wouldn't be a problem; the wig and sword on the other hand would prove to be a most interesting challange...

yardage/hakama
« Reply #29 on: January 18, 2006, 10:06:38 PM »

in answer to questions about yardage- if you're making a short kimono on traditional lines, you should need about 4 yards total of 54 or 60 inch wide cloth(2 yards outside, 2 yards inside, and i'm estimating with quite a bit to spare)-4 strips each 15 inches wide and 40 or 50 inches long (length from your shoulder to your knee, plus some for hems and seams and whatnot) and 2 strips the right length to fold in half and make into sleeves, plus extra for the collar and the front placket things on the kimono.

a Haori is going to need about the same amount as a kimono.

Hakama, on the other hand, use ridiculous amounts of fabric because of the number of pleats they involve. I can't remember exactly how much i used, but i think it was around 5 or 6 yards.

hakama are actually bloody annoying to make right... -_-'' even if one does have experience in sewing. i can vouch that e-bogu.com carries REALLY nice ones these ones are navy blue, but you could easily dye them with Procion dye from Dharma Trading

I also reccomend the Folkwear Asian Patterns, in particular #113, #129, and #159. ^____^

We'll be definately coming for Bleach gathering, I was so envious last year of all the shinigami, but didn't have costume yet.
So this year I'll be coming with my Chibi as Yachiru.  Not sure about my cosplay yet. I have Byakuya costume, but not happy with the wig, if I find better wig by then, then I will wear it, if not, I'll be someone else. We'll hook up with Bankai_Devil 11th Division crew for some awesome Kenpachi/Yachiru pictures. Hehehehe....

I bought crap load of fabric for my and Yachiru shinigami outfit and I had TONS left. Hakama doesn't really take that much of the fabric, well, depending on the size. I did size 26, I believe, and used about 3 yards of fabric. Kimono didn't take much of the fabric either. I cheated and combined pattern of kimono and martial arts gi. So it worked.

Planning on doing a Isshin cosplay (a short version of him, actually >_>) either in the suit he wore to Masaki's grave or if I can make that weird badge he had on in one of the recent manga chapters, I'll be him in shinigami form.  Gotta grow a beard though.  Might do the 7th division vice captain too if I get my sunglasses before the con.

I am going to do Rukia's school uniform and my partner is going to do Ishida's :D.

I actually didn't see that many Bleach cosplayers last year. All I remember is.. Naruto :lol:.

Sorry to hear that you missed the gathering... I think the reason why you didn't see that many was because the Bleach get together was at the same time as Naruto. I shot the Bleach gathering instead of the Naruto.... check out my pics on my website and see some of the Bleach cospeeps ^^)

Till Next Time....

I plan on attending the gathering again this year... at least to shoot, but I'd luv to cosplay. I am 6' and I make more traditional Kimono's, Haori, Happy Coats, and Hakama. Both male and female... I estimated that I will need 16 yards give or take half a yard. That is for the whole costume. I can never remember the character's name that I want to cosplay so I will post that later..... *sits and thinks....

I did Hinamori last year at Fanime (and many people called me Rukia.  =__=;;; ) and did Soi Fong at AX (chopped off all my hair, lmfao) and this year at Fanime06 I'll be cosplaying Shinigami Academy version Hinamori.

I just can't make up my mind, now can I? It's not set in stone yet, but the option to go in Ishida's unfirom (non-Shinigami or school) has opened up and I have a good feeling about this one.

I just bought my sewing pattern! I can't wait till it gets here and I can start sewing. Looks like it's going to be a lot of fabric; luckily it's mostly black. :D

maybe we should make a list of people who are going and what character they are going to cosplay, just so we can get an idea of how many people are going to be there.just an idea ^^
