JASCO cultural event

Personal note:  Oh my gosh!  I haven’t done a blog post since June and here it is almost the end of August!  In my defense I was having some health related issues all through July.  Everything is good now, I got some really positive news from my doctor so my outlook is much brighter now!  Also, I reconnected with an old friend from high school and we’ve been chatting a lot in my spare time, so sorry for neglecting my kimono blog for almost 2 months!  I do have quite a few updates.

 

On July 20th Quat and I did a presentation for Japan-America Society Of Central Ohio.  Please visit their website to check them out. http://www.jas-co.org.  This was the group we got to network with a bit during the JSO festival this year.  We were invited to do a short yukata dressing demonstration.  The theme of the event was Tanabata festival and there were presentations on the festival, ike-bana, Japanese traditional dance, and taiko drumming as well.  It was a nice afternoon of cultural education and our Columbus Kimono group was happy to be involved.

During one of Brittany’s dance pieces. Unfortunately my camera had difficulty with the lighting so a lot of my pictures came out blurry.

We loaned an outfit to Brittany for her dance pieces; summer weight komon with hakata obi. Quat is wearing a traditional indigo colored yukata.

This is the only picture we got of the three of us together. I wore traditional indigo yukata as well with hydrangea on it.
