    What black lipstick did you use? I have a pretty cool custom one, but I don’t wear it often. >D I was wondering what to do with it so that it’s gorgeous, just not overly “black is the colour of my souulll”. Maybe kimono, then!

    I love the Taisho-style blue and black combo. My hair used to be those colours! I do think there should have been more orange in the obi to match the collar, since it looks so good with the blue, but orange, gold, silver, and black would have changed the ‘feel’ of everything. Is that kimono actual Taisho, or a remake?

    1. Honestly it was just some Halloween costume lipstick. I don’t remember the brand, but it wasn’t expensive really. Ah, I want to see you custom color! I think if you want to avoid the super goth look, you should pair it with bright colors, so it’s more of a fashion statement than an ode to darkness.

      Whoa, I would love to have blue and black hair! Sounds pretty sweet. I kind of think my hair is orange enough to offset the haneri collar haha!

      And yes, it’s an original Taisho kimono. I fought long and hard for it in a bidding war. 😉

        I had the very first tube of this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/63094055/glittery-plum-lipstick-persephone?ga_search_query=persephone

        Actually, it was made for me. I had a nail polish that was black with tonnes of red glitter, and I wanted a matching lipstick. This is what they came up with. Next day, it made the front page of Etsy. >D I also have a really good Pomegranate lotion from them (but the perfume oil, don’t bother with. It isn’t the same.) I tend to blacken my too-bright reds with it.

        1. Sweet! That’s such a gorgeous color. And that’s pretty awesome that they’d custom mix colors for you like that. I’m in love with their metallic gold lipstick too. Too bad it has macadamia nut oil in it, or else I’d totally buy it…(Allergic to all nuts :/ It seems like it’s so hard to find nice beauty products or lotions without nuts these days!)

          There’s no such thing as “too bright” red in my book lol. ;P

            Try Fyrinnae’s ‘Isis’ lipgloss. I ❤ their eyeshadows, and especially the Pixie Epoxy (basically, a glue for glittery makeup). The ingredients don't show any nut products, I think, but you'd know best. ^_~

            1. Oh, very cool! Thanks, I’ll have to give them a try!

              I’m also considering Ka’Oir brand…http://kaoir.com. They have glitter which applies to lipstick, which is so gaudy that I feel that I MUST try it lol.
