*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.
