Kijin Ko was meant to be a quick cosplay because Joann's had this amazing yellow brocade and I wanted to use it for something. Kijin was that opportunity because of his yellow garments.
Now I'm going to be the first to admit that I know very little about Chinese or Korean garments. Saiunkoku Monogatari's clothing seems to be a combination of Asian styles, but I only really know about the Japanese influences. My Kijin cosplay was patterned based on my knowledge of kimono.
The only really magnificent part of this cosplay, I think, is the mask. It is made of paper clay and painted with watercolors. Yes, watercolors. I didn't want anything too opaque. The ties were handmade using kumihimo techniques. I really like how those turned out.
This cosplay has never debuted and never had a formal photoshoot. What I have here was a quick set of photos my mother helped me take. There was no time for more, and I cannot remember exactly why. But that is that. Later on I do hope to take more.
