Q&A: How do I make/Where can I buy a relatively cheap Kimono?

Question by Chris: How do I make/Where can I buy a relatively cheap Kimono?
I’ve got to dress up as something for this fair called “Renaissance Fair”, or something like that ~ and I was put into a Japanese culture thing.

So,
I need to get a Kimono.
However, I have no idea how to make one, and I’m not that great at sewing lol.

Would it be better if I were to make my own? Or should I buy my own?

Also, please post any links on how to make one,
or any links where I could buy one for a cheap price? ($ 20 – $ 50 would be good, or a little more than that.)

**ALSO, I’m not looking for any fancy, expensive, show off ones, just a basic one :3.

Thanks.

    To buy a traditional kimono would cost you big bucks. Hopefully this site will help you. Maybe you could talk someone into making it for you! Try Google for more ideas.

    Lol Its called Yukuta For Guys But anyways try buying it at
    Amazon or Ebay anywhere you can just search it I know a good place in Japan but I dont think you live there XD

    $ 20-$ 50 probably won’t buy you a kimono, and it certainly won’t buy you the kimono and everything you need to wear it properly. You should look for a yukata instead, they’re usually within your price range. I don’t suggest looking on eBay unless you really know what you’re looking for — there’s a lot of junk mixed in with the good authentic stuff. Try places like Kimono Market Sakura, Ichiroya, Yamatoku, and Kimono Lily instead.
