Well, I have the house to myself this weekend, and this kimono and haori came in the mail and I just HAD to try them on…:)
I would like to introduce to you my cat, Groucho. (Actually, he is my roomate’s, but it feels like he is mine as well.) His name is totally wrong, because he is such a sweetie and loves belly rubs haha ❤
This is a musubi in the latest KimonoHime that was meant for nagoya obi. I made it with hanhaba and made some changes to it.
No tabi with okobo…scandalous! (This is the style that oiran and tayuu courtesans used to wear, although they wore koma geta instead of okobo…)
They say that pet owners start to look like their pets after a while…
This haori is a ro summer weave, while the rest is hitoe (single layered for warmer months). This is the last time I will wear single-layered kimono until next spring. It’s almost time to change to awase (thicker winter wear)!
Oh, and a friend and I went to Otakon this year (August 8-10th), so be on the lookout for more kimono outfits, as well as a few cosplay pictures in my next update!
