My new Shamisen

Here is my new shamisen. It just came today. Right now I'm getting used to holding everything properly. The music is pretty easy to read so hopefully I can get teh hang of it soon!!!!
Here is my Maru obi. It's the first obi I bought. I love the design.

This is my taisho set. I want to get a pale pink obiage/obijime and eventually a vintage red juban. I do have a taisho underkimono but its so fragile I'm afraid to wear it.

Yay I just won an awesome kimono

I'm so excited but I feel kind of foolish. I won this kimono but for a little more than I wanted to spend. Eeks. Once my finger hit the button I couldn't stop bidding.

Pre-WWII kimono.

A pre-WWII kimono I got from the internet quite a while ago. Its very soft and silky. I really like this one as well. I wonder if it's Taisho?

This is one of the first kimonos I bought. Its beautiful and pritine. I have to say one of my favorites. It crepe silk with a pink lining. I LOVE it.

More kimono

More of the kimono from Yokodana

Kimono Pics from Yokodana

Here' some pics of my order. This is the box that they came in. Its HUGE!!!

This is what I saw when I first opened the box. A beautiful tie die michiyuki

Here are some pics of a few of the kimonos. They sent four purple pieces. How did they know I'm a sucker for a purple kimono?

Here' s a really pretty red kimono with lame.

One of the purple ones. Its nice but sadly has quite a bit of yellow staining. I may try to clean them. We'll see.

Here is the michiyuke and the haori they sent me. Sorry but the pics are a tad blurry.

Yokodana order came

I just got my order from Yokodana. I'm sooo happy. I got a ton of stuff and am currently taking pictures. I would certainly order from them again!!!

I've been trying to tie my nagoya obi for weeks now. Grrrrrrr. It's getting so frustrating. I've been using several on-line tutorials and I just can't get it wrapped right. Its looks so easy lol. Hmmmm. Maybe my obi is broken.
