Day 2: Grey Iromuji


So my kimono experience has gotten to the second day and today it was time for my green iromuji kimono layered with dark blue butterfly komon. I still wore the same hanhaba as I did yesterday. I've gotten my right shoulder stuck pretty bad so otaiko musubi is a no-no until I get it unstuck. It has given me headaches for the past 1.5 weeks, but luckily non so bad that a painkiller would not help.
It seems I've been favouring this musubi lately, it's so easy to tie and with this hanhaba, it does not necessarily require an obijime. When I  go out I usually put the obijime, just to make sure it won't fall appart.. I don't know what's going on with that ohashori there, it was not in an co-operative mood. Yesterday the layering kimono was smaller than the top layer kimono, today, as you can see, it was the opposite.
Detail shot of the layering kimono. The top layer kimono is silk and the blue kimono is synthetic.
Today's featured accessory: Half gloves! (I'm not sure if it's the correct word) These ones are very long, all the way up to my elbows so they kept my arms nice and warm.
And here's the little rascal who tried to smuggle herself in every picture I took today. She's our 4-years old kitty lady Kiki.

Comparing yesterday and today I'd say I prefer the yukata to the syntetic kimono. It's a lot warmer, I grant it that, but also it feels a little too hot because the outfit does not breath as well. Othervice I loved this outfit and if the cold air comes back, I know what kimono's to dig out of the closet. Oh, and as a final word: This video cheered me up this morning: Setsubun Obake, Imoseyama by Arumukos It's in three parts, so please watch all parts to enjoy it to the fullest!

  1. Lumikettu I didn't know you had a blog :D How cool! I also linked your blog right away. All those layerd kimono are awesome. But isn't it very warm?

    I hope your shoulder will get well soon. If tying a taiko is very hard why not tie one on you belly and than turn it to the back?

    Greetings Linda

    1. Saiya-chan, this is a very new blog, just a few days old.^^ It is rather warm, but it's also very cold out there right now.

      I have tried to tie the obi in the front, but it usually falls appart when I turn it. But this is a good opportunity to learn how to do front tying!^^

      Thank you for linking me!
