reaaally late sejin shiki photoshoot!

 So today I met with Charrissa again and we did a long wanted photoshoot in our beloved furisodes! I had been pondering about which kimono to wear: my green or my white with blue flowers furisode? i went with the last eventually >u<! And I also decided this will be my sakura matsuri outfit ^^b!! With my birthday I had put on this furisode and didn't really like how the combo looked on me. So this time I changed the whole outfit in something more modern =D! This time I went with my odori obi. I found it a bit 'to much' so to say, so I remembered my, and Charissa's outing to Amsterdam a while back. Charissa used a lace 'cover' over her obi =D so that is what I did too this time around with a nice see through black shawl >u<! It really is becoming one of my favorite 'kimono' items... ofcource it is really just a shawl but i use it in so many ways!! I never would have realised i´d use this item so much in kimono ^^ I still remember thinking "when can i finally use it with kimono ;A;" but now i can't ever miss it again >u<! ANYWAY back to the topic. Then i paired my turquoise blue assesoiries with it, with as result using blue and black han/date eri =B  Charissa's outfit is her gorgeous green furisode, which she paired with her DIFFICULT TO TIE maru obi x'D! seriously that thing is horrible >: but it looks so pretty ;u; We went downstairs when finally done and my mom made a few pics before we headed out to make a few pictures in the parc. But it was a bit to cold still so we went back to my house really quickly ;u;anyways on to the pics... i ramble way to much sorry for that =P!

my first entry~!

my first entry =D i am still getting the hang of things now but it seems like fun to have a blog =P I also jumped on the bandwagon. Anyways I always spam everyone on facebook with my kitsuke that isn't fit for the IG forums imo... and mayby not everyone is interested in that on FB ^^;; now this will be my dump place for sloppy but also pretty kitsuke ^^ and ofcource some tryouts i do from time to time =D I will post my own creations as well, so please look forward to it all >u<!

now some pictures i didn't share on Immortal geisha before (in no particular order)

 my so called valentines kitsuke x'D it is soooo late and sloppy at that. It's sloppy because i didn't use a juban, since in truth this is
just some try out x'D i wanted to see if the kimono fit me length whise =D and luckily it does. Not as low as it should be but still acceptable =D!

here i tried out my kimono poncho that i purchased from one of my
dear friends Jukiko. She made this by hand and  it just looks lovely <3
and it is so soft ;A;! I also put it on a normal jeans <3 it looks good on that too but it should be a different coloured jeans the next time ^^''

 back then, this was my original plan to wear to the Kimono de Jack anniversary in the UK. I changed this whool kimono into a silk/rayon iromuji  since i thought it was more appropriate for the occasion. We went to a small tea ceremony so i changed the kimono, and eventually also my obi for my silver fukuro obi ^^ actually... my whole outfit was changed ^^;; the only thing i kept were the assesoiries (bag, flower in my hair, and obiage/jime set) even the shoes i changed to zori (since the day before i hurt them allot with those same shoes... didn't feel like hurting it even more)
 i don't own this furisode anymore and this is my only photo of me wearing it. Now a friend of mine bought it from me so i will probably see it again sometime ^^ I wore this set with a dutch festivity called sinterklaas. It is quite close to the santa claus with christmas =D

this is a kimono i got as a present in the christmas swap in 2010/2011. I really wish it looked good on me but it makes me look SO old it isn't even funny. And i haven't found anything yet to youthenize it >: Though the kimono is perfect fit, so i'll take it apart and use it as a pattern for upcoming kimono projects =D!

anyways i think for a first entry this should be enough =D I will keep you updated with my photo's and outings >u<! i will probably put some photo's of possible ensembles for the sakura event end march =D and also a few obi idea's i am working on >u< so please check it out soon again =D!
