I took part in a kitsuke challenge on Immortal Geisha forums: "What's Black, White and Red All Over". What a nice idea! I haven't even tried this kimono on before because it's so small but I decided to give a try.
The kurotomesode looks discolored in the photos but it's not, it's just the flash. Actually the seller's photos looked like it too but even I thought there's discoloration all over I still got it. Maybe the other bidders thought so too so I got it practically for free! It's very small so no ohashori this time. I'm not going to wear this ensemble out of the house anyway.
BTW, these photos are taken by me! I think I'm getting better. They're at least not too blurred ^_^
I hurried home after work and dressed quickly to be able to take the pictures before it got dark but I didn't quite make it and had to take the pics with a flash. It gets dark so soon now.
