9th annual JSO Spring Festival

We did our photo booth gig for them again this year.  It was a lot of fun and we were very busy all day.  We were unable to get a lot of photos but luckily my mom, sister and niece stopped by and took some.  I even got to dress my sister and niece in yukata for the first time!  My niece loved the experience.  I’m not sure what possessed me but I decided it would be a good idea to wear and work all day in kimono for this event.  I wore the yellow cotton komon I got in my Yamatoku box and borrowed the obi from Quat.  I did not wear juban underneath but just my kimono slip and Quat talked me out of wearing geta so I just had on my flip flops.  I got pretty warm rushing about dressing and undressing people and had to change back into normal clothes about an hour before the end.  It was still worth it though!  I actually got in a conversation with one lady about her kimono and the fact that she never wears it because she feels it’s too fancy.  She seemed to like the idea that kimono can be casual as well.  We met a bunch of great people interested in kimono and our de jack group…sooooo maybe we’ll have some new members soon?  I also talked with an organizer of the Japan American  Society of Central Ohio who is very interested in working with our Columbus Kimono project.  I’m super excited about that!  Um…geez…so much stuff I can’t quite remember.  Anyway have some photos!
