My first Kanzashi ..... : D

It has many opportunities for improvement, but I had not really expected that it would be so nice, you can actually see what it should be.

So it arrived

So my new Fukuro obi arrived, and it is as nice as I hoped : D

I have here tried it with my kurosomestode, and I like it.I'm a little unsure, if the obi is formal enough, it dose have a looot of silver, all over.
I have looked several competitions "those where the goal is to dress others" to see how far I can go with a color for a Fukuro to a kurosomestode.

This picture is with out accessories, and the traditionel flat obijme

New Fukuro

This one have two sides

Have yet to see this, but I am really looking forwar

Summer Fukuro
Nice but a little short, the color was a bit different, when it
got home. it is always difficoult to snap, metalic treads.
This was impulsive (mistake) buy, it is syntetic, but very long.

This one has a slightly lightred, colour all over.

Metalic, from dark green to purple, I hope...

Feel mighty lucky, I have got this iromuji, the fabric looks a bit shiny, but when it is 170 cm long and 142 cm sleeve to sleeve, then I can live with a some shiny fabric.

There was Zori with, but they are a bit bit small for me, unfortunately.
