I took some pictures Sakura wearing the typical hakama set used for Kyuudo before I send it to the owner xD. She looks lovely isn’t she?? :))
This dress requires a lot of pinning, and ironing ^^, but I’m happy with the result, I needed 2 tries on the bottom part, and one for the top, I was lucky :p
Detail of the belt.
I also tried to make the tabi, it’s difficult to make them with the separation on the toe.
To complete the set, I wanted to add a Kyuudo bow and arrows, my father helped me on that, when I asked him, he went right away to his “dungeon” and came back with a 1/3 scale kyuudo bow for DD! (awesome man xD).
I wanted to make her look like she is shooting the arrow, but was too complicated ^^”’. The rope is elastic and removable, you “could” theoretically throw the arrow, hehe, but I wouldn’t stretch too much the bow just in case^^
Close up, she look so lovely!!
It’s part of Kyuudo’s discipline to throw 2 arrows, the archer holds one in the left hand while shoots the other arrow.
Real Kyuudo bows are like 2m tall @_@. I used to practice olympic style archery, both can’t be compared, totally different feelings, I wish I could try Kyuudo one day :)
Saku is ready steady for her next shoot xD
Details of the arrows. They are made of real feathers.
Detail of the end of the arrow, looks dangerous! xD
Now I have to make one for myself…hehe, I love it!
Thanks for looking! ^__^
