Pretty peacock

Now some proper kitsuke for my peacock houmongi on one of my dummies.
I really like the pattern of the peacock on this kimono. The close-up of the front shows the peacock itself, of which the feathers go on onto the back of the kimono. On the left sleeve and shoulder there are also some feathers, really pretty.

And for this kimono I got the perfect nagoya obi, that also goes well with my blue iro-tomesode. I could say that this is one of my favorite obi, but I only have 4 (5 actually, but 1 I haven't tried on yet).

Since last year we have a very little sakura, or Japanese cherry, tree.
Last week we had our own cherry blossoms, so sweet. I hope the tree will grow nice and big, and that I can use it as a background in my kimono pictures. If I want to do that now, I will either have to lie on the ground or do some serious Photoshop haha.

Shibori haori

When we went to the theatre to see Dadada-Dan Tenko, Misuchi gave me a really pretty shibori haori. It's a beautiful deeper red that normal red, and the pattern is very nice. I just love it.

Thank you so much Misuchi!

My poor wallet...

After a few months of asking friends if they had a DSLR-camera, and if so, which DSLR-camera. After a few months of researching the web and reading reviews, I finally bought me a Pentax K10D camera! My poor wallet...

To make it all complete, I also bought a lightweight tripod, a remote control so I can be able to make selfportraits (I got the idea from Misuchi), a second lens (18-200 mm) for New-Zealand...

And a Lowepro Slingshot bag. Really nifty this one...

Hopefully I can post my first DSLR picture soon :-)
