Hey all,

Thought I'd give you a heads-up...

My kimono panel is slated for Sunday, from 10am to Noon.

If you'd like to learn how to wear kimono properly (and not like a bathrobe), please come! ^_^

For the most part, however, it will be just women's kimono, unless I can wrangle a friend of mine to bring his! (Or mebbe someone can volunteer??) I can introduce Yukata and "regular" kimono with a drum bow.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to dress in kimono myself, because I'm still recovering from a broken wrist-- no strength in that hand (still not allowed to lift anything either!) and still working on getting full movement back. Gomen. ::bows::

See you at the con!

I'm bringing my kimono. Could you possibly teach me before hand and then if you need help with the panel I could help?

I'll be there with my yukata if you need me. I have no idea how to tie/wear it properly, so I'll need the hands-on experience, lol

Even though i dont have a Kimono I still think I may want to drop by and meet your panel. I hope to have a Mens Kimono Made for me by my next con, And I would apprciate knowing how to put it on. I accually thought You put it on like a bath robe before i went to my Japanesse class..........I felt very out of place, even though I'm always out of place due to my height.
