Clothing help!
« on: August 31, 2014, 08:29:42 PM »
I'm having A LOT of trouble trying to find kimonos for a game I'm working on. Polyvore doesn't have a great selection, and all the other sites I've visited don't have all the colors I need. Pinterest and Tumblr aren't helpful either. I really can't find any good sites. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Are you looking for pics of people wearing kimonos?  (If so, male, female, or both?)

Or are you looking for fabrics?

I'd prefer if it was just the kimono itself, but for males as well as females. Not fabrics, but the actual kimono. I'm trying to find ones that are: grey, green, gold (or something that can pass for gold), and red.

Here are a ton of kimono images, over 2,000. Some male, some female, some animated, some real, modern and antique...

If you do an image search on Google, and hit 'Search Tools', you can search by color.

I'm reading this as persephone looking for kimonos, not pictures of them.  Like, actual ones people can wear?

I have found black/white gradient (not totally gray), lots of red, a very few of an olive green, and absolutely no yellow/gold spectrum in a google image search of "kimono."

Be aware, there are going to be several different styles of kimono from the era you look at and the class.  Geiko will differ from maiko, as will samurai from noble, as will common from noble.  The colors are most likely going to come from the entertaining class of women and the noble class of women from everything I've ever seen.

My friend actually sent me some pictures of some good ones, so I'm almost set. We found a good website that has tons of kimonos. ^^

Thank you guys for all your suggestions, though! :-)
