haku's pants [Nov. 4th, 2006|11:42 am]
Studio Ghibli Cosplay!


Hi! I found this community through the 'studio ghibli' community and I really love all your costumes! They're all really beautiful :)

Anyway, I've been wanting to do a Haku costume for a while.

When I was researching Haku's pants, I think they came up as sashinuki.

Does this mean that his pants also have the pleats that the usual hakama come with?

I've been looking at this site also for reference:
some pictures here of traditional outfits
But can't really tell if they had pleats or not x.x and usually animation (I think) tends to omit details like that.

Also - as to the outer tunic. Just to check, but the sleeves are attatched around halfway down the back and front of the body, for only around 3-4cm? How do people keep the top part of the sleeve falling down?

Thank you, if you can help!

I'm hoping to do a set of ghibli costumes in the upcoming months for my friends and I, so I'll probably be back to ask more questions ^^;

Okay, finally made it! XD Sorry!

Anyway, can you do me a favor and link a few pics of Haku? I can't remember his pants. *O.o*

Either way, I think you can use or omit the pleats as you see fit. ^^ Work with your skill level, of course, and off the artwork. However, I think adding little details like the pleats in those pants, if it can be done right, really makes the costume look great! =D

As far as the sleeves... I've seen them held up with little bits of thread between them... does that make any sense?

Thank you for your reply! I didnt realise someone had replied to this ^^;; So sorry for my late response.



Sorry, the pictures arent so great -.-;

Actually I'm really confused lol - I think maybe they arent supposed to have pleats. I think under the tunic anyway it should be ok I guess ^^;

Yeah, I don't think you'll need any pleats on the pants, that'll make it easier. ^^ They are somewhat in the style of hakama, since they sorta don't have sides. The tunic underneath therefore should be long enough to fill in those side parts. ^^

Good luck! =D
