Historic Samurai

This outfit was put together for Anime Iowa Expo Lite 2021!

Watch video here:

What you see here is me wearing is an example of uniform that the samurai would wear during the edo to meiji period in Japan. 

Wearing the hakama and the kataginu was called Kamishimo. The two articles of clothing would be made out of the same fabric to assist in preventing textile waste.

I was dressed by Tangerine Mountain Imports and Designs.

Outfit consists of:

- Men's juban

- Men's Kimono

- Umanori Hakama

- Kataginu

- Tabi socks

- Men's Setta

I did my own hair and makeup.
