My friend and her kimono

It's so much fun to dress other people in kimono, even at 2am! My friend Heli still had some energy to smile and pose for a photo even it was a very long day. She is wearing her new komon and a fukuro obi of mine. I bought the obi because in the listing it looked like it was pink but apparently it wasn't. I was a little disappointed but luckily the obi goes quite well with Heli's kimono :)
The beautiful kanzashi are made by her. Click here to see more of her work!

I did some experiments with the obiage. What do you think about it?


A close-up. This obijime is just awesome! Very non-traditional but pretty.

Hi, I am Shino from Tokyo. Your experiments with the black obiage is awesome! I really like it.
Anyway, thanks for listing my blog on your site among lots of Japanese kimono authorities' blogs I adore. How did you find these Japanese blogs?

Hi Shino, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment! Glad you like the obiage :)
I like your blog a lot and I found it and many other awesome blogs just by following links of another blogs I've been reading. I can't read Japanese but I like to look at the pictures. I'm always searching for new sources of inspiration so the blog list is kinda long :)
