Christmas Peacock

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!

Me with my new baby ❤

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! 😀

    You look beautiful, and that kimono is just gorgeous!
    Btw, I love where you’re living, or at least what I can see from the pictures. Very spacious and green. Whereabouts do you live?

    Happy Christmas and a kimonoful and good New Year to you too!

    Regards from Holland ^_^

    1. Thank you! 🙂 I live right by the Blue Ridge Mountains in the South-Eastern part of the United States. It’s a gorgeous place to live, and the sunsets are amazing over the mountains! Holland must be a very beautiful place to live as well. You’re very lucky…there are a lot of kimono-wearers in the Netherlands! I wish I had someone by me who wore kimono as well.
