At Kitacon we were showing how to cosplay with real, affordable vintage kimono to get the best effect! The attendees love the demo and also the stall we ran over the weekend to sell off parts of our collections!
Contact us if you want us to do something similar at your event!
Eclectic kimono were at Nottingham Pagan Prides Japanorama Saturday providing hostess services, kimono rental, kimono dressing and also a demo.
Here are some pictures from the event:
Make up and hair were provided by Esme Knight and further kimono by Kelly from her own collection.
Everyone enjoyed the day, the information provided and demo.
Our next demo and talk will be at Kitacon about Geisha and Samurai cosplay
Well Maiko strictly speaking (apprentice Geisha)
One of the workshops we do is to show people how to turn a normal vintage kimono into Geisha cosplay, as well as the limitations. Only a real susohiki/hikizuri kimono with accessories can give you the full effect needed. Geisha/Maiko kimono when obtained in the vintage state are still expensive and can be fragile. This is a robust vintage synthetic kimono, which can be used in cosplay effectively without breaking the bank.
This maiko dressing demonstration was done with a wedding kimono which are widely available and a wedding obi.

There will be a J-culture area at this years Entertainment and media show in London and this means lots of kimono goodness. In conjunction with two friends we will be contributing formal kitsuke/kimono demos on stage as well as kimono in cosplay workshops and yukata dressing all day. We will also have a stall selling kimono and kanzashi.
This years event sports starts such as Edward Furlong, Eve Miles, Alex Winter and many more from Dr Who, Harry Potter, Star trek and STAR WARS! You can tell which film means most to me
