Costume Information

Another Juubei costume! Sakura wanted to cosplay Kadsuki and Juubei from volume 30 of the manga. There's not much to say, since this costume only appears for a handful of pages. Plus, it's really simple costume so it was made in a couple of days.

I made the grey part by altering my Maora jacket pattern, and then I made up a pattern for the "skirt". I sewed the pieces together, and the belt covers the seam nicely. The collar is pretty standard and has a lot of interfacing in it. I made my own black bias tape out of black twill. There's black velcro hidden under the bias tape so I can get in and out of the costume.

I made my own belt buckle out of sculpey and silver paint and attached it to the belt, which I made out of white twill, six grommets, and some velcro. I used a black t-shirt, pants and shoes I already owned for the black parts. I did make the gloves, but I didn't use a pattern, so they're not that great. I already owned the wig, and the bandages are from a Naruto costume.

The only glaring inaccuracy in this costume is that the boots are supposed to be white. Consider that this costume is pretty obscure and was made for fun, I don't really care if the boots are the wrong colour. =P
