Kimono show

After the dance, I also participated in the Kimono fashion show with my friends, just for fun. Hehe, might as well since I was already all dressed for the occasion!

Some experts kitsuke ladies (kimono dressers) are so skillful in their crafts. Within 20 minutes, they were able to put me in this hot pink furisode (long long sleeves!) and tied this whatyoumacallit bow! Wonder if it's fukura suzume?

You know, if the kimono is dressed correctly, it's actually very comfortable. Aren't the bows kawaii?

Dearest Jaime:
Greetings on a beautiful day that is your Nihon Buyo debut.
Your dance and fashion show seem very aesthetic. However much of a newbie you are, you have gotten the Zen pose quite right, your pictures look like Japanese poetry -- like the free flowing Tanka or the more strict Haiku.

Dear Jaime,

Congratulations for the gorgeous debut. Not only the bows, the kimono and the hair dresser are kawaii, the lady wearing them is the most kawaii one. I am proud of you.
