Matsuri con 2014

Our Kimono de Jack group decided to hit up a local convention last month.  We only went on Friday due to work and other adult responsibilities but it was a nice excuse to get dressed up.  This summer in Ohio has been pretty mild with cooler temperatures and lots of rain but of course the weekend of the convention was hot and humid.  Quat and I puttered around the convention center looking in the dealers room and artist alley, went to lunch at North Market and then met up with some of the members of The Northwest Ohio Kimono Society for dinner at Sushi Ting.  Later in the evening Quat and I went back to help Kerry from Ohio Kimono unload and set up her booth in the dealers room.  It was a long day but it’s always worth it to get to wear kimono!

Quat wore her blue synthetic ro komon with tiny fan pattern and a cute grey hanhaba with bunnies. Foregoing traditional foot wear she chose funky white sandals instead. I really love the modern look.

Enjoying a chicken pesto wrap for lunch at North Market along with some Jasmine green bubble tea. Delish!

We had to make a little side trip so Quat could feed some fish and there was this great little ‘park’ by the apartments. I’m wearing a ro homongi with hydrangea and my ro obi has red camellia with silver water accents.
