This was the first costume I made for Kayle. It is from the anime Bleach. She wears a “Shihakushō”, which consists of white shitagi (under shirt), a black kosode (outer shirt) and hakama (pants), a pair of white tabi (toe socks), a pair of waraji (straw sandals), and a white obi (sash).
I made her shitagi and kosode using the Folkwear Haori pattern (#129). Her hakama were made using Folkwear #151. Her obi was made without a pattern. Her wig, tabi, waraji and sword were all purchased. Her sword is live steel, but is peace tied during conventions.
