Kyuudo Set

| 15 Comments

Hi!

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?? :))

You can see Chun-san’s Aki-chan wearing a hakama in her blog and afterwards worn by Danny Choo’s Saber. Awesome work! :)

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! ^__^

    • Thanks a lot! I loved how you made yours, I didn’t find time to make it until now :) hehe, have to make one in red as a Miko xD

    • you can make a formal request, hehe, but I already have something from you in queue right?^^ have to write my PhD now, so I have to slow down sewing a bit, and the last cosplay commission took me very long :S
      I plan to put that set in the store as a “preorder” so I can make them on demand ( specially because of the bow, I have to ask my father to make them, and he needs time)
