Today is the 5th anniversary of Kimono de Jack!
As part of the celebrations, every KDJ around the globe was asked to create an anniversary video to share with the main Kyoto branch. Our group was small (just the two main heads) due to scheduling conflicts, but we had a lot of fun!
This is my last kitsuke with blue hair! I dyed it this weekend in honor of St. Patrick’s day…it’s now highlighter/neon green! (and blacklight reactant hahaha)
My obi is from my dear friend Choutama, and features one of my favorite flowers: Lily of the Valley! It’s a rather rare motif to find on kimono items, and we used to have them growing in our garden when I was growing up, so of course I fell in love with it immediately.
I love my friend’s kimono…it’s very chic and if I ever managed to steal it, I would wear it with a black collar Edo-style. 😉
Of course, she would be able to get my cat to stay still long enough to be photographed…his name is Groucho, but don’t let the name fool you! He’s super sweet (when he wants something) and not at all grumpy (unless you are not paying attention to him).
We had a lot fun…so much so, that we were laughing throughout the whole video. We must have shot it at least 10 times!
All in all, we had a great time! Happy birthday, Kimono de Jack!
