mrr you can buy a hakama and gi from the martial arts store on queen st in auckland or you can get one from your local kendo club, same with the bokken. However if i remember right i think they dont allow practice weapons anymore ... but i think im thinking of the cosplay competition and not hall cosplays.

As for the jacket youd probably have to get it commissioned.

Also can you please provide some reference images of what you want please. You're lucky I just happen to know about the Shinsengumi but yeah ...

yeah youre better off getting it commissioned for you because most kendo/martial arts use dark coloured hakamas and white gi though some people in kendo also use the blue one as well

hakama look daunting, but they're actually a lot easier to make than they seem. /has made like six pairs 8DDDDD there are some helpful links floating around in the tutorial database~ http://forum.cosplay.co.nz/costume-help-critique-f31/cnz-cosplay-tutorial-database-updated-30-05-09-t4000.htm

Father Nightroad, I merged your two topics as your one in the General Discussion doesn't belong there as it is a costume help request, and you already have a thread on the same topic in the Costume Help Very Happy

Good luck! Like Seraphik said, making hakama isn't actually so bad; there are plenty of good tutorials out there for hakama and the Haori Very Happy

Went to the GNC (a shop you lot in aucland SHOULD know of) and found that I could buy it from Japan for roughly 400 NZ (probably not including tax, postage and Seoung's profit margin). Most likely closer to 450 to 500 NZ.

Will give the Haori pattern's a shot. Wouldn't mind some help with understanding the patterns thoud (a complete noob to sewing my own gear ^^)

Do I use the men's hakama or the skirt form (women's?)?
