Kaku obi musubi

Next year as my year 12 photography folio need a subject i'm using my pride and joy in kimono. But i had a problem , i suck at colour co-ordination. There fore mi dragged my sister into helping me work out ensombles for items i already own.For it she brought in her only obi; a mens kaku obi that is stiff as all hell but a beutiful royal blue.
Turns out the colour makes several of my kimono just pop, so this gave me the excuse i needed to hi jack it and try it on. XD
I ended up with a cute little flat musubi that i will tutorial in the next kitsuke otaku mag, but for now enjoy the pics. ^^
Please excuse my aweful osahori, i'd gotten home from my maths exam just before i put it on, so i was in no mood for padding

kitsuke otaku issue 5

Not a kitsuke post T_T But something just as interesting.

Kitsuke Otaku (the magazine i run) wishes to get out a tribute magazine for the late Onihide this December.
If you knew him or just his work, then it would be great if you could write a comment or even an article as part of the tribute.
The magazine's previous issues can be viewed here. http://www.kitsuke-otaku.deviantart.com/
(i'm still improving) XD

ko furi fun time

Been a while, but i return bearing fun news.
Finnaly i'm goiing to have some ladys hakkama plus a bonus 2 kimono (ko furi at that) I can't wait to get my hands on them.
On the down side i have to wait till my birthday at the end of the month till i can have them since i'm paying dad back with expected b day money. And i had to pay for expensive shipping to, there goiing to be sitting in his cubourd for weeks Crys, oh well i'll have them forevor after that.

This is the first one, it has white rabbits with red eyes on the sleeves witch will make it a real sentimental kimono for me since i lost my precious rabbit ruby who had this traits in november last year. The hakkama it comes with will need some ironing.

 I've been looking for a chocolate brown kimono for a while now. I had this idea in my head to pair it with a rich blood red obi. (plus it's my second favourite colour) XD

I can't wait to get my hands on these. And a big thanks to Yamtoku for posting them ^^
Best buy for $40 i've done in a while ^^
