Photo shoot with Kenji - more traditional
For haneri I used the haneri I made back in December over at April's house, it's white silk with rhinestones snowflakes designs. Since our weather was all over the place in March, I felt like it was an appropriate not to winter that just wouldn't leave. The obi is my favorite black and white bamboo nagoya that I got from Hong. I also used a turtle brooch as an obidome, but you can't see it that well in photos. Still, it is there and it's super adorable!
Kenji took me to a small village on the way to Bury St. Edmunds that had a convenient phone booth location, meaning it wasn't near garbage bins like every other one around here, and it was in an open area. I've always wanted to take photos in kimono in the red phone booth, and now I have them!
I'm extremely happy with the phone booth photos, especially the very bottom one. I think that photo shows very well how one can still be sexy in kimono without having to show much skin at all! Or could it just be me that looks very sexy in kimono...? ;)
