Rurouni Kenshin is definitely one of my favorite animes of all time!  I always thought I was a little like Kaoru, so I wanted to make some of her costumes.

In the series, Kaoru kind of wears a few different purple kimono with different juban or obi.  This kimono is probably most like the one she wears in the 8th volume of Kenshin, but none of the colors are exact.

I dyed my hair black for this costume, and I used a ponytail extension because I figured it would be most realistic and easy to do.  But, that makes it really hard to put this costume on at any time and wear it.  I even bought real geta and tabi for this occasion~ I also bought obi accessories.  In some of the risingsun.net photos, the purple of the kimono looks a little more intense than the actual color.

I used a pattern as a base for this kimono, but all of the costume kimono patterns that were out at the time were SO inaccurate, so I altered it best I could.  The Obi is 9ft long and it was a challenge to try to tie it when I wasn’t really used to it yet, haha.

The Kenshin posing with me is Natalie.
