Hi there!  I keep meaning to update but Tumblr always seems to distract me.  Such pretty, pretty things on tumblr.  Anyhow, lets see dream Kitsuke items?

There are two pieces I think would be really neat to have in my collection.  I’d love to own a Geisha/Geiko Hikizuri; the long trailing kimono they use.  Unfortunately they can be rather pricey and because of this I don’t think I’d go into collecting them.  Still having one would be nice.

I’d also like to own a vintage black furisode.  These pop up from time to time and tend to be a little more in my price range.  I’ve thrown out a couple of bids before but never won so maybe in the future.  I must confess part of the reason I want a black furi is because of the anime Hell Girl, plus for historical value.  You don’t really see modern black furisode that often.
