Day 77: Kimono
I love to play dress up, and I always wanted the chance to wear a traditional Japanese kimono or even fully made up as a traditional Geisha. Thankfully I’ve had the opportunity to do both on several occasions.
Dressing up in a kimono was infinitely less restricting compared to being dressed as a geisha. It took about 30min to get the make up and the wig properly fitted and another 20min to put on the 8 layers of clothing while being tightly cinched around the waist. I could only take a few steps at a time wobbling on wooden platform sandals while the obi belts were cutting into my hip bones. But it was all totally worth it.
Compared to that, the kimono was a breeze with the only 3 layers and obi belt around my waist. But it was all so much fun and I’d love the chance to dress up some more.
