So, I desperately need cash to make ends meet so I'm selling my Kimono and accessories.
Apologies for bad pictures - poorly lit room and reliance on camera phone = lame.
The kimono and obi on the right. The obi is a Nagoya obi, therefore half sewn down - it dates from the 70's.
The kimono also dates late 70's and is a heavy winter kimono typically worn by a married woman.
Close up of Obi.
Close up of kimono design.
Furisode Juuban with chrysanthemum emboss design. Utterly beautiful, worn by young unmarried women beneath their outer furisode kimono. Furisode = Long dangling sleeves. Modern dating around 90's.
Red and gold juuban. Typically worn beneath short sleeved kimono. The design is eye catching! Collar is stained but would have a stitch-over collar ontop ordinarily when worn. Dates 70's.
This juuban is rather special - it is entirely red, only the sleeves and waist-down have a crane emboss design - the torso is plain. Being entirely red, this is a rarity and was likely worn by either a young Maiko or Kabuki actor. There is some slight staining from make up around the collar.
Ofuku (senior) Maiko wig. Hand made for me by an authentic wig artisan in Japan who works with geisha and kabuki actors. Comes in a huge wooden storage case. Has a full metal interior frame to ensure the style doesn't budge. Weighs a lot to wear. Has a latex hairline for seamless blending. 100% genuine, also real hair. Has no ornaments, just the wig. Worn only once for this photoset. Would be expensive to post if you cannot arrange to collect!!
I'm open to offers of any sort, but please be fair :)
Pass the message on if you know anyone who may have an interest!
