One kendo set.
Two men’s kimono.
Six women’s kimono.
Fifteen chances to dress people in kimono.
Hundreds of himo, korin belts, tabi, and other accessories.
This has been my life every Saturday and Sunday for the past three weeks. I wrote about this experience earlier here. Basically, the foreign community in my area put on an annual English musical, and this year I was the official kimono dresser. I raided my kimono closet to dress ten people in kimono. Five of those people I had to dress twice during each show, with the shortest turn around time being two minutes. It was exhausting, stressful, but a also a great experience that I’d love to do again. It was great experience in dressing others, and I got really fast at it too! I just wanted to share some of the photos that various people took during the past few weeks.
These are only a few of the photos I have. The rest of them are on my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/readysetkimono
