    Smile help for first-time cosplayer please! D:

    Hey, my name's Keita and I'm new to the scene - I've got a few friends who are regular cosplayers, but its gonna be my first time. I'm planning a Kikyo costume (Inuyasha) but I'm not really sure how to go about it.

    Is her bottom a skirt or a pair of really puffy pants, and what are they called? I think I read 'hakama' somewhere, but I'm not really sure. Also, would anyone know where to get materials for such a costume, and how would I go about making the bow?

    Really grateful for help, thanks!

    Hahah, thanks guys, but I think I wanna give a shot at making my own this time. Does anyone know what the top part of Kikyo's costume is called? I've come across 'hakamashita', 'kosode', 'yukata', 'kimono', and a whole lot of other terms too. Which one is it exactly?

    She's a miko, right? So, logically, she's wearing what mikos wear...

    "The dress of a miko (tradionally and what is still worn today) is a chihaya, which consists of a dark red hakama, pleated pants (like kendoists wear), a white kimono shirt with very long and wide sleeves, and tabi socks. White or red ribbons often adorn their hair."

    And because I'm cheap, I'll just copy and paste wiki. >.>

    Hahah, hello to all the Inuyasha cosplayers here!

    Just to ask, are you lot going for the midyear or EOY? I'm going for the EOY, even though I'm not sure if it seems early to be preparing my costume in February, but its my O level year so I can't spend too much time nearer the end of the year. So I'm doing whatever I can now >
