ro kimono

A few months ago I bought this nice synthetic Ro kimono on ebay, I really like the colours but having a problem finding a suitable obi.
Today I found the time to do some kitsuke but of all the obi I have there wasn't one which really was a beauty combi, so in the end I choose a fukuro obi with some pink/beige and silver in it and I found the outcome not really bad.

Have a great week.

being creative

Sometimes I have the urge to change stuff in my living room. Don't ask me why because I haven't gotta clue, the only thing I can tell you is that I do but maybe it sounds familiar.
So I few weeks back I started to metamorphose my dresser which I tried to sell on a  local internet site but wasn't something which people were looking for, so I thought I had  to paint this one to give it a better look.
I think it looks much better this way but it's bin a long time with me so maybe you would prefer it in the old look but anyway I think it's a improvement.

home made

Yes, I finally made a eri sugata. It took me a quit a while but it was worth the trouble. It's made of plane cotton but I also made a eri of cotton with a kind of flower because just plane cotton didn't do it for me.
I hope when I wear it, it will stay in place but time will tell.
Here a some pictures:
