Orange Taisho kimono

I couldn't help feeling disappointed when I got this kimono in mail. It's in excellent condition and the size is okay but I didn't like the color at all. It looked much much prettier in seller's photos! I still decided to give it a chance and did some experimental kitsuke with my mofuku Nagoya obi. Perhaps it's got some potential anyway.

The photos are taken without a flash to draw out the real color. Still it looks better in photos, I think.

Furisode dress-up

Heli just got her new super kawaii furisode. I love the blue color, it's so beautiful and looks very good on her! She doesn't have an obi to go with it yet. My white and pink fukuro obi goes fine with it but a yellow obi would be a more interesting choice, I think.

The flowers are orchids. A little unusual motif but so pretty ^_^

My red furisode with roses. I tried this on before with different accessories but it didn't look so good. I guess I'm more on the right track now.
Sorry for the sloppy kitsuke! I just wanted to get dressed quickly but now I think I should have tried harder.
