About this Costume
Construction Details:
It was a lot of squares and rectangle cutting! Lena pretty much camped over several nights total to help me cut, cut, and handsew. We roughly based it off a yukata and tailored it to our measurements. Most of the orange portions were either doubled up, or lined. We also learned how to tie a tasuki.

The shoes were normal getas covered with red fabric. Ohana\'s hairclips were cut from a fake flower and hot glued onto hairclips. The clip on the uniform consisted of a fake flower head and pearls.

THIS WAS WHEN NAT AND PAT WERE BORN.
Personal Thoughts:
I'm charmed by Ohana's cheerful and initiative personality, and every Hanasaku Iroha episode managed to make me smile. I haven't seen many Hanasaku Iroha cosplays, and I really wanted to bring a little of her out.

This was originally meant to be made for Sakura Matsuri, but I ended up pushing it off until ANext. I'm so lucky to have both a Nako and Minko *U* I'm usually not fond of orange, but the waitress outfits are cute!

I ended up bringing along a pink onsen manju plush that I bought from an onsen in Japan a few years ago.

Wig Review
The wig was already originally soft and easy to handle. I
