Two posts in one day? Yup, because I can!
Yup, after I got home I decided to do some kitsuke practice – this time with my only hakama because I've been having some brain bugs and forgot how one part of the hakama tying exactly went; managed to figure it out though!
I also tried out ichimonji musubi for the first time for hakama wearing, although I'm not sure if I'm a fan of the, err, "samurai badonkadonk”, so to speak. LOL
Also, the kimono is not actually mine, I bought it for my bro (who has a slight kimono interest) but when I took it out of the package –to take off the basting threads– I couldn't resist trying it on because it's PURPLE. And it doesn't seem too short for me length-wise at all, which I had thought it would.
Please excuse the peeking juban sleeves (my own juban + bro's shorter kimono = derp), I'm fighting the eternal fight against peeking juban sleeves. xD
The hakama are my only current hakama by the way, aka my dark brown silk andon hakama... needs moar hakama ~
Again sorry for terrible lighting on the photos – it gets dark here so fast now and pretty much all lights in our house is yellowish and just tends to make photos taken inside after the sun has set –or is setting– bad.
Again mirror photos. Home alone.
Oh, and don't ask what's up with my hair – when I woke up it flipped like that and it has been doing that the whole day, even though I tried to comb it down several times!

I would fall if I wouldn't sit down 3-2-1-NOW. Weird.
