Japanese Girl




This is my own furisode - I had it made to my size while in Japan (and yes, it's expensive).

I wear this outfit for kimono kitsuke (wearing) competitions, and that's when I have my hair done in the Japanese style (AKA "nihongami"). The hair is always all mine, but it's been puffed out with special nylon netting for volume.

The furisode has momiji, ducks, sakura, ume, fuji, and many other motifs on it making it all-season. It's nice in person, but it's not good for the stage (since the obi and kimono are a similar shade).

I go to kitsuke classes about once a week. I love learning about kimono and how to wear it and tie various obi bows.
