Cosplay + editing

:iconromailee:

 
Chizuru's Geisha version (I call it Geisha because they call it like this in the Anime! I know that some attributes are more like that of an Oiran!) was a lot of work. But it was not sewing the kimonos, it was rather making all the patterns for the Kimonos. I made them with Illustrator and let them be printed by a
specialized company. I'm sure that this is one of my most expensive cosplays (.__."") But I really love it so it was worth it. The wig was a big challenge. I never did such a complicated wig before but with the help of some tutorials I manged it more or less. At least the front and the side parts. The back still looks very messy...

This is the second shooting wiht this cosplay. This time I got the right time for shooting with the cherry blossom (^__^). I decided to dress up as much as possible at home because it's easier to do with a large mirror and such.. but I had do drive to the location like that XD Now I'm really happy I did that because everything looks much better dressed now. Also I managed to knot the Obi bow almost perfectly ^^
I love the pictures and I really didn't know which one to upload first since all of them are so beautiful - thanks to AzurBlueDragon.

Omg, this cosplay is absolutely beautiful!

The kimono is perfect, and the cherry blossom trees really make this photo that much more amazing.

It's obvious this cosplay took a lot of hard work and effort, but it obviously paid off!

Instant fave! (:

Just look at the reference picture, she has her Obi tied in front too, I don't care if that makes it a Oiran because this is cosplay and in the story she is no Oiran, just dressing up
