Gekokujou | Update

Hey guys. I wanted to do a picture post since I haven’t done any in awhile.

So let’s start out with the obi. It’s really, really long. [ 3 1/2 yds. ] If you’re making one, I suggest using that length or longer if you want to make sure it’s good enough. I learned how to tie it by watching this YouTube video, but since you can’t really tie it on by yourself, I couldn’t take a picture of me wearing it. For the hair ornament, I thought the kusudama flower would look really nice as a hair pin for the Gekokujou cosplays, so I made the flowers with the colors light blue and pink to match Miku and Luka’s colors. Ichigo made some hair barrettes, so we’ll have that and this. I bought the tabi socks from a great website called Sock Dreams! I’ve bought from them twice, and both times have been great. They have free shipping inside the US & I got my package in 3 days. [ From Portland to New York ] I bought the geta after Ichigo found a gift store in Chinatown called Ting’s Gift Store that sold them, and they carry antique items, so i’m not sure if they restock geta.

I’m so excited for Sakura Matsuri, I haven’t cosplayed at an event for 8 months now. So, I’m also kind of nervous because it’s been over half a year. The most important thing is to have fun though, and I think we will!
