Every year at the Sakura Matsuri there is an awesome vendor who sells vintage kimono panels. I’ve gotten some really lovely pieces from her in the past. This year I had Z and Daisuke in mind. When I brought these up to the vendor the first thing she said was “it seems that someone likes the older pieces”. It turns out that these these date back to the 1940s (perfect for Z and Head). The top one is hemp and has some sheerness to it. I was given a discount on the middle piece because it was patched and stained (the patchwork and stain was the selling point for me so a big win with the discount). I’m either going to have someone make kimono/haori/yukata for my two or attempt it myself. I might even get a bit left over to make some hanao for geta or even some prop items. Very excited about these finds.
It looks like Seiji made a friend.
I still have a few photos to edit from the lovely meet that happened yesterday. It was such a beautiful day and perfect for photo taking. Here is a cute one that stuck out and made me chuckle a little. Seiji is my little guy but the lovely lady sitting with him belongs to sentrythedefiant. I had asked Amber if it was okay to photograph the two together. The colors of their outfits match exactly.
Maybe she’s a dark queen and Seiji is her minion or maybe this could be something of a Kuroshitsuji spin off where she is his nanny. Too many possible stories to tell here and they all smell of success… As soon as someone gets on writing and animating it.
There were so many cuties at this meet so more photos to come.
