New furisode, in a classic seated pose that shows my sleeves and brocade zori.
These were taken at the Seattle Cherry Blossom Festival this April. It's one of the few occasions where I feel completely comfortable wearing kimono in public, even though I was one of the very few people present who did. The reactions I got were terrific, particularly from the older women there. They tend to be very impressed when I explain I dressed myself. It's a great conversation starter, even if we don't always speak the same language ^_^
