Here ends my cosplay this month. These two weeks were very enjoyable. So much was going on, and I had a lot of experience in such a short term. I have no plan right now, so finally things settled.
After I finished Suefumi, I cosplayed one more character, that is, Hijikata Toshiro[土方十四郎] in Gintama[銀魂]. I think I have cosplayed him a couple of times, however, I cosplayed his occasional costume, 着流し[kinagashi]. Kinagashi is something like a kimono for men, but it is more simple and easy to put on. It really takes time for women to put on a kimono. If necessary, it needs someone’s help. You might think of 袴[hakama] when it comes down to men’s traditional clothes. Well, like Zetsubo-sensei. Here you can see one more men’s Japanese traditional one…that is 着流し.
Hijikata is a the lieutenant of Shinsengumi, so he usually wears the uniform. But when he is off, he wears a kinagashi. I cosplayed it, remember I told you that real fans would like to complete all the costumes of the character they love? Yes, I love Hijikata! I know my place, but sometimes I wish I could be cool like him. At best, the otaku Hijikata should be suitable for me. lol
We spent much time for Suefumi, so there was not much time left because the park closed so soon. But we had a beautiful sunset, now sunset time is really short. Maybe it only lasts 30 minutes or so…don’t you think it is kind of sad, huh? But in such a ephemeral moment, there is a man wearing a kinagashi…oh, this is something like one of the Japanese virtue, 侘寂[wabi sabi]? こんなコスプレも楽しいな＾＾
Hijikata is convenient to me because he might be in the late 20’s? I think I can cosplay after I am 30! I need to look for a character like him for my cosplay life.
