Finncon/Animecon 2009 outfit

This year's convention was a lot of fun! I was one of the very few kimono-clad people, not counting all those Bleach cosplayers :)

I wore my sha summer kimono and a hitoe obi, both synthetic and washable. But I think that even an awase kimono made of silk is more breathable. Well, at least my ensemble _looks_ cool enough...

The first day I tied my obi into bunko musubi but it probably wasn't a very good idea. Bunko looks nice with yukata but it just didn't work so well with this kimono. Next day I did kouken (chidori) musubi. It wasn't a 100% success but still it was better than bunko. My obi was a bit too floppy and also on the short side so the wings of my "chidori" didn't become as well as I had liked them to. Anyway, I'm always happy to try something new.

BTW I'm totally in love with my Swan Lake bag ^_^

That is a fresh looking ensemble. You look very beautiful and fresh. I love that musubi and the bag ^_^
I guess you are right, these poly kimono only look fresh, but the silk ones are hot too and those get ruined when getting a bit damp :(
Never mind, you look gorgeous, as always ^_^

You look very summery but what i really find cute is your hair.
It makes the ensamble bold.

Can't add anything to the things Misuchi and Rota said, only that you look like you're from a manga-comic in the first picture ^_~
