Oh, look! CLOTHES!

Oh. Em. Gee. I think I need to thank Mr. Kubo on this one, for providing me with a burst of inspiration recently. So, yeah, I’ve discovered I’m a big Bleach fan, and after having dashed through the 24 available volumes of the manga and some of the anime episodes, what was more natural for me than… yes, you get it. I decided to make a Shinigami uniform. See here the result, which I’m quite satisfied with. I even pushed it as far as to add a vice-captain armband (I picked the 10th division one. Don’t ask me, I quite like Rangiku-san’s character. I’ll likely end up making one for each of the Gotei 13 anyway, just because I can.).

I’m now toying with the idea of adding captain uniforms, too, but the coats would be a hassle to make, and I’m not too fond of simply ‘drawing’ them as part of the hakama/shirt… Heh. Perhaps I’m being too perfectionist on this one. It wouldn’t be impossible.

Will I sell this? I don’t know yet. Maybe. It’s nothing very original in itself, but hey, at this rate, crafting a pair of shoes or a hakama in general isn’t ‘original’ either, so why should I be ashamed. I’ll see how it goes. I still need to complete the oufit with the associated tabi and shoes themselves, and I doubt I can do that before next week, but who knows…

  1. SOUL SOCIETY! MUHAHAHA. I used to watch Bleach a lot with my Jadey. We’d queue up the episodes on our Winamps and then push play at the same time after counting down in chat. I forget some things about the series but I do remember it had a very catchy opening song.

    Looks like you’ve got a great new inspired fashion here.

  2. Hehe, I wish I had discovered the manga and series sooner, I only had my satori middle of December 😉 On the other hand, at least I had lots of it already available, since it wasn’t that new. The opening song is indeed pretty catchy–although I’ve renounced singing it, I can’t keep up with the pace *lol*
