Otaiko practice

*pants*  Whew!  I forgot how exhausting obi tying on yourself can be.  I practiced twice today with my Nagoya obi trying to tie an otaiko.  I didn’t get any pictures, felt it wasn’t worth it really.  I learned a few things though.  I have an overly large ribcage so I had to omit a fold to get the pattern to show up along the front.  I am getting better but I seriously need some good kitsuke items.  The Obi-makura(pillow) that I faked isn’t long enough so the edges of my otaiko droop.  Plus I really need an obi-jime.  I’m getting there just lacking funds at the moment.  Luckily most of the stuff I need I can fake for a while at least.
