9. My biggest fears&wishes what comes to kimonos
10. My biggest inspirations in kimonos
11. My kimono collection

 2. My dearest kimono item(s)

Now you got me bad, because most of the kimonos I own are more or less dear to me, but if I have to choose one, it's my silver nagoya obi with the character "Shizuka"- Quiet.

Shizuka nagoya obi
 It's the first ever nagoya obi and actual kimono item I have purchased. And it was for Halloween! I was making a "zombie" outfit with pure white kimono and needed an obi. Little search in Ichiroya dropped me to this obi and I knew there was the obi I need.

The other dear item is a more recent addition from last December. V got this kimono for me as a christmas present (I got him a miniature model of a Sturmtiger tank and a detail book about tanks, he really likes them). It's the first ever kimono that he has gotten me. You cannot see it properly in the image, but there's a hint of purple in the "spirits".
