I want to put her on now!!! I don't have a furisode juban so I might have to go all ghetto and use a regular juban. I also need to learn how to tie my fukuro obi! It is gorgeous. There's gold embroidery, gold foil or resin, yuzen, and shibori. I am in love. It works with my obi and it even fits. How can this be?? **Runs off to grab kitsuke stuff**
I'm a kimono-addicted belly dancer. I've started a modest collection of vintage and new kimonos and obis and I'm learning how to dress myself in them. I'm pretty much obsessed with learning anything and everything about japanese textiles. I also make some of my own bellydance costumes. I've been dancing for 5 years now and am working up to giving professional quality performances. This is family-oriented stuff so no pervy comments allowed!
