The furisode is stunning!!!

Isn't it? It was a lucky find on ebay; it was marked down so much because there are glue stains on the collar, (you can see a little in the first picture) but with some tlc I think they'll come right out.

I got a furisode last year in a beautiful emerald green with flowers in rainbow colors and edged in gold thread~ I still need more pieces to wear it properly though ^^;

Do you wear kimono as well or is it just something you like to collect?

That sounds so pretty! I'd love to see pictures! I would have loved one with gold stitching, but putting together a kitsuke is already so expensive. I recently purchased a nagajuban that also has peonies so it kind of matches, but my biggest difficulty so far is finding affordable zori. I'm already planning to make a few things myself too, to save on cost. I'm hoping to have everything I need to wear it in March at the Seattle sakura-con.

I like to wear kimono, but this is the first one I've ever owned! Because like lolita, it's such an expensive hobby, I doubt I'll ever be a true kimono collector. But maybe over the years I'll be able to build a small collection.

Oh yeah, I know the feeling. I'm lucky enough to have several kimono but I still need more pieces to wear them properly! XXD I cosplay, wear Lolita, kimono..... yeah.... >.>

Ah, but you should wear a furisode with a fukuro obi or a maru obi since a furisode is the most formal and thus you need the same formal obi. But then again, most people won't know the difference so.... XD

Dressing up is fun. If I had time to do it everyday, I probably would.

I should, but I think I'm going to look for a nice nagoya obi first, since even if I had a fukuro obi, I'd only be able to do simple knots by myself.

Yeah, I heard Bodyline petti's are only good if you want to layer them. (Even though they also don't keep their poof for very long) I heard Classical Puppets is supposed to be good for petti's.

I heard Classical Puppets is good too, looking forward to the day I acquire a better one.

So much more burando than me lol. Still jealous of the h.naoto swallowtail things

If I ever feel like selling, I promise to ask you first.

Haha. On another note, I definitely enjoy how your things are sweet but not overtly so. More accessories should to the trick. Have you thought of buying sweet prints as well or are more of a solids kind of girl?

Haha, I have the same petti from BL I think, so I know how shitty it is x) !
