Lord Sesshomaru's Kimono: Alternate Kimono #1 (Manga - Japan Only)


pawpawpawpawpaw


Alternate Kimono #1:


Sesshomaru's Alternate Kimono #1, is a very ceremonial style, of solid white, with full swinging sleeves that sweep in lengths just above his ankles. The lower quarter of each sleeve is dyed purple, and the left shoulder is also dyed purple.

On the front and back of each sleeve, near the boarder of the dye are embroidered three family crests (twelve in all). The crest is repeated on the neck and shoulder of the left side.

Each crest consists of a triple hexagon with a six petaled white plum/cherry blossom in the center of each purple hexagon, surrounded by a white boarder.

Beneath his Kimono Sesshomaru wears a white (or sometimes purple flower print) Nagajuban.

The Hakama worn with this is usually pale lilac colored, while the battle armor may be black, purple, or sky blue in color. When wearing black or purple armor, the yellow Heko-obi is worn with this, however, when wearing the sky blue armor, the blue Heko-obi is worn, as are a pair of sky blue shoes.

This is a rarely seen alternate version of Lord Sesshomaru's kimono. This is the second most commonly drawn version featured in non-cannon daijoshi manga.
