Yesterday we went to see Yamato at the theatre. They were very good, very different from Tenko, but oh so very good. And of course I went in kimono!

We had a great time. Too bad the group didn't sign because they had to pack, but at least I got 2 compliments about my outfit, and a lot of stares haha.

This time I went in my furisode because it had a little taiko on it, and after wearing it the whole evening, I must say that this furisode may be the most comfortable kimono I have. It's perfect, doesn't flap open when walking, perfect height and width, very nice to wear again.

Unfortunately my biyosugata hasn't arrived (yet), but I wanted the fukura suzume on my back. So I tried to tie it on my belly and turn it around, and it actually worked! It wasn't as high as it should have been, but I thought it was acceptable ^_^

But of course after 2 carrides nothing was left of it...

you look so cute in this furisode. It really suits you!
Too bad your biyosugata didn't arrive in time, strange too, EMS should be really fast.
Your musubi looks quite ok.
I do wish however I could help you more, because it is actually possible to ride as many cars you like and not look disheveled. Maybe next time we have some time for tips and tricks ^_^

That would be nice!
An otaiko musubi doesn't get cranky in the car, but that's because nothing can go wrong haha.
Would love to see you again, but June is arriving very fast ^_^

Very well done, especially considering you had to turn our obi around!

Hope you did get your biyosugata. It takes some practice to figure out how to use it but it will help your musubi to keep it's shape.

you look very pretty and the colour suite you very well.

and the stares will be normal when you wear a kimono often, i think.
see ya soon

Thanks xiner! Unfortunately my biyosugata hasn't arrived yet. Hope it will get here this week. Through track & trace I could see that on the 6th of May it arrived in our country at customs, but I guess it got stuck there :-(

@Rota: we'll have to get used to stares... Yes, see you very soon!

Very beautiful! I was shocked by your kimono because I think I own its sister ;) . Mine has a rickshaw instead of the taiko. I'll have to take a look when I get home from work. Yours is gorgeous!

Kyuukaryuko said...

Thank you Erin! You've made me curious :-) Do you have a blog?

Erin said...

No, I don't. But I can take some pictures and post them somewhere. I'll see what I can do for you ;)
