I recently bought myself a new camera, in preparation for several photography/graphic art courses I’ll be taking in the next semesters, which require more than my little point-and-shoot was able to give. It’s a Canon Rebel XS, and I love it to death! I tried it out today, and I definitely will be using it for kitsuke pictures from now on!
Anyways, this outfit is an early Christmas kitsuke…since once again, I am working during the holidays. Oh well, that means I’ll have more money to buy Christmas gifts with!
I adore this kimono…when I first saw it for sale, I immediately fell in love. It’s meisen, checkered, red, and has turquoise peacock feathers. I mean…what’s not to love?!
This obi is made from what’s called shusu silk, which is soft but thick and luxurious. It has a motif of various camellia flowers. Technically, camellia is more of a February/March motif…but it worked so well with this kimono, I had to use it!
This is the same fascinator I wore with the outfit I auctioned off. If only there were more occasions to wear headwear like this!

And I had to include this shot…it’s the very first time I’ve been able to tie the obijime right and photograph it! (Damn thing always twists around and looks weird in photos)
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!
