I tried manipulating it around by myself but no luck lol. I really wish we've more hooded equipment.

Here you go. They're in German, but I'm sure you'll figure this out nonetheless. Looking forward to what you'll do with it!

I wanted to create a more run-down type of costume for Sets, which I could even use Heihachi's moustache for lol. I think the frayed straw hat turned out nicely. Wounded and patched up, covered in dust, she managed to retrieve one of the lost scrolls of Shinden Tsushima-ryu Battoujutsu...

Elderly lady Setsuka.

I made this one just for Daishi lol. Thinking about how he excluded so many veterans in SCV, supposedly simply for being too old to be attractive enough, I wanted to take it over the top a notch. In order to do that, I enhanced the preexisting wrinkly make-up by exaggerating eye lid sacks and wrinkling up her mouth and neck, too. At one point, I even considered giving her kimono shit stains in order to gross out Daishi even more, but eventually went with the more, um, dignified version.

On a side note, I'm amazed by how believable the old woman concept works with Setsuka's moveset, her new idle stance especially lol.

Buddhist Nun Setsuka.

A subtly detailed look I really enjoy. I wanted to incorporate Buddhist symbolism with a more tame overall vibe as well the self-controlled, self-tied theme Yoshie Hideo mentioned. The ExEq blend in lovely in this one and I might re-use the ideas in the future. I hope you'll enjoy!

Meiji-Era Setsuka

Continuing her East meets West theme, I thought it would make sense to create something symbolically representing the big historic changes that the Meiji era (1868-1912) brought over Japan.

The traditional kimono is torn apart and still worn underneath, her bleeding wounds barely covered by the Navy's blue overcoat, lace and other formerly unknown Western attire. Guns replacing swords by and by, dangling from her hip and abolishing the Samurai caste for good.

For fun, I also threw in some steampunk/karakuri ningyou (Japanese mechanical doll) element visible on her left arm as technology from the West took up steam in Meiji Japan.

Maiko Setsuka

This is an obvious one that I had started early on but was never really satisfied with, as the pre-made Geisha make-up options left a lot to be desired imo. Now finally, I managed to work around the limitations and could even recreate the iconic "mountain-style" way that Maiko paint their necks. Also, I expanded on the Geisha hairstyle base, adding volume and proportions that I like much better and which give it more credibility in-game.

For the kimono, I chose Setsuka's SCIV one, as it has a nicer flow and its shimmer makes it easier to make the fabric look golden metallic. I found a print pattern that would emphasize the festive, rich embroidery with shaded colors and additional petals and on top harmonized very well with the pre-existing texture. I am so happy with the way it turned out!

While I am aware that a Maiko kimono really is much more intricate, with lots and lots of different layers, much longer sleeves and obi (and no giant tits hanging out lol), this one feels right to me (especially compared to the other kimono items offered), also allowing for a glimpse of the mountain-style neck painting.

I hope you like it!
