Inner kimono, obi board, and shoes not included! Included items are: Outer kimono, obi, bow, scraps to tie around waist, and hair accessory. Bats are heat-n-bonded on so may need additional ironing after shipment and prior to wear. I'm 5'3" and this hits my ankles when hiked up. In order to attach the bow to the obi a piece must be inserted through the middle of the bow and put behind the obi. I use a piece of thick wire that's covered. $20 extra for an unopened/unstyled Lilac wig from Fantasy Sheep. I had bought two wigs because one wasn't going to get to me in time. It hasn't been opened or used in anyway.
- Construction Details:
Yukata was made out of light pink cotton~ The bats were made with a lighter weight dark pink and white cotton and then heat-n-bonded onto the finished yukata piece. I tried to put the bats on as accurately to the pictures as I could but I seriously didn't feel like making different sized bats. SO SICK OF BATS YO. The collar detail is lace that I stitched onto the collars seam so that it wouldn't show on the top.
The nagajuban [inner piece] is just plain white because I wasn't sure what her inner piece looked like and it was safer to just go with white [and more useful].
The obi is a bright pink cotton with the same lace details sewed onto the edges. I took regular white satin ribbon and white scalloped ribbon and put them together and then made it go around the obi in the middle. I then took a fake flower and glued that ish right in the middle of the ribbon bow!
The hair piece is just another flower that I cut down so it wasn't so big on my head and then attached a string of pearls to it. The geta were just altered by me taking the same dark pink cotton and handstitching it around the straps so I could take them off when I wear them with a different outfit.
The fan was just a regular fan I had that I painted to make it gradient pink to white on the front and white on the back to match my pink theme and the cherry blossom theme.

- WHY DO I KEEP WEARING SO MUCH PINK GODDAMN.
