This costume is a fantasy approach to traditional Japanese clothing. I was trying to make a costume that would look like something a deity might wear in human form. This particular costume is my interpretation of a Chinese Dragon. I layered the “scale” knit fabric over a red metallic cotton blend to create the fabric for the hakama pants. The upper part of the costume consists of a gold metallic underkimono under a translucent patterned overkimono. The decorative belt is made of metallic fabric with hand-painted details.
