Someone stop me if I got too detailed here. I have spent too much time in this costume to be completely objective.

Yes! Very Happy
Okay, I have a few comments for consideration.

Hakama:
"with pleats pointed towards the center front. "

Can you explain that sentence? Because my mind isn't making sense of it right now.

Obi:
Should the pattern be optional? It's very hard to see.

Shoes:
I think there was a better shoe image under 'hakama'.

Hair:
I was thinking the first sentence could maybe be written like this:
"Hair is pulled back into several long, thin braids."
The part about grouping them into ponytails comes next.
And I think a word must be missing here:
"Each cluster of braids is off with a band of small silver, gray, and hematite beads."

Make-up:
I see it more as a medium blue, than light, just thinly applied to be translucent. Light blue is a very different color to me. Maybe 'light-medium blue'?
