New obi

Long time no post! I have been busy but today I finally got a change to try on this Nagoya obi. It has some kind of Chinese feel in it: colors, design, fabric. I like it ^_^

Sushi, kitsuke and new haircut

Heli was visiting me tonight. We had sushi dinner and of course got dressed in kimono ^_^

I love my new haircut, it's super easy and comfortable! I didn't have to start dressing in kimono by doing my hair up first. At this point we had eaten TONS of sushi so that explains a little sloppy kitsuke...

I think I finally got the blue Taisho kimono ensemble together. This obi looks better than the maru obi I tried with it before. I also like the pink haori even it's too small. What do you think? Heli is wearing a karako tsukesage which is one of my favorite kimono but too small for me to wear. I'm glad it fits her!

Fukurasuzume attempt! I did this the traditional way, without biyosugata. Another wing soon fell apart but I think I know what I did wrong. Practise, practise...

Bunny ears LOL ^_^

My newest kitsuke challenge ensemble! This time it's about Immortal Geisha Team Colours: wear pink and blue wafuku ^_^

I haven't worn this furisode after our wedding over an year ago and I have to say I was surprised how much easier it was to get dressed now. It still is far from perfect but I guess I've improved a bit. Yay :) Too bad it's a kimono for not married women! I added blue date-eri, obiage and obijime (which is a bit too high I guess). At the wedding I wore this with red accessories and the look is quite different even the kimono and the obi are the same.

Our rooftop is a good place to take pictures. The light is beautiful and there are no staring people around. Today the wind was strong but it wasn't too cold. After many days raining I'm so happy to see the sun shine!
