Ohgami (Sakura Taisen) version 3 in progress

Since ayakasan asked, here's an in-progress picture of my Ohgami Ichiro costume:

Please ignore the booby-ness and hippy-ness of the picture since this is on AJ's dressform. :)

Yes, this is my 3rd attempt of this jacket, because... I'm nuts. :)

Actually the first one is ok, you may have seen me wear it at Fanime and Ani-Magic, but I wanted to remake it. The first one was just way too heavy. It was the 3rd thing I've ever sewed in my life so I didn't know how to do a few things. I double layered (and triple layered in some places) to solve some structural problems so it's really heavy and really hot.

This version is done properly (I think) and is a lot lighter since it's only one layer of fabric not counting the lining. Yes, I'm gonna line it! :>

I guess I have to say that I've learned *so* much working on this costume in all it's versions and I'm looking forward to making this one properly.

Oh and I'm a bit Sakura Taisen obsessed. :)
