So this is a kitsuke I wore during May, to go round the Brighton Artists Open Houses (a wonderful yearly event!)
Purple and vermillion striped taisho omeshi komon
Grey and red (fukuro?) obi. From Michelle at Yield for Kimono. I’m assuming this is a very casual fukuro as its not sewn in half at one end, but I may be wrong Slightly dubious as to whether I should really have worn it with teh komono formality-wise but couldn’t resist the stripe overload.
Yellow and Brown bokashi obiage
Powder blue obijime
Purple Chirimen han eri
Tobacco brown boots
I unfortunately can’t remember if I was trying to do a taiko or a tsunodashi when I did my musubi, and looking at the photo I still can’t tell what I was aiming for…sigh…my musubi tying REALLY needs some work!
Oh and I finally found some decent wisteria to be photographed under…and didn’t publish the pics until May was over- doh!
