Portrait of me in front of the Manor House in the celtic village Gabreta. My friend and I spent four wounderful days in this village, living a little bit like the old celts.
If you are interested in visiting too:
I´m wearing different objects on my belt. Talisman, knife, a little bag with objects for firemaking.
Brooches of bronze on my shoulders, and a necklace made of glaspearls.
And a headcloth to hide my very unceltic red hair ;-)
So finally time to wear Ro Kimono. Since I´ve got more Ro Kimono than Awase or Hitoe, I want them to be worn. I took two friends of mine, dressed them in kimono and went out to a japanese restaurant.
I´m wearing a purple silk Ro Kimono from early Showa Period with long sleeves and a yellow obi, which I suppose is from Taisho or early Showa era.
My friends are wearing blue synthetic Ro Kimono.
So again I noticed, that I can dress other people in kimono very well, but fail in doing so on myself... ;-)
