I wore this outfit a couple of weeks before my birthday and it’s actually very similar to the outfit I wore for Colossal last year. This time though I paired it with some nice western shoes and my new Hakata obi I got in Chicago. The obi is nice and long but it is very floppy and even with an obi-ita it still managed to get quite wrinkly over the evening. The kimono is Ro and needs to be taken out a bit, as seen by my peaking juban sleeve, but the material is very thin and I’m a little afraid it might rip. Since we only have a month or so left of Usumomo season though I may just wait and alter it next year if need be.
