Hmm, seemingly there is no news regarding my IG forums problem yet. :/ My emails to the IG membership help adress have gone unanswered too (the one I sent on 3rd June). I guess I can't do so much more than wait and hope that something happens.. eventually. I don't have much more to say about this matter; I just keep hoping that something would happen because the IG boards are a huge source of inspiration for me and motivation to wear kimono.
I've been experiencing a kimono rut too as of lately; I can't seem to find the time/inspiration to dress up and take photos. Sorry guys! Then again, the lack of access to the IG forums plays a part as well as the summer anime con season; my cosplay blog is blooming during this time of year and it's not the easiest to keep several blogs equally active. Speaking of which – I recently put together a cosplay consisting of only authentic kimono items so I guess I could link the post in here too in case someone missed it: kimono!Gakupo cosplay from Vocaloid. There's more kimono outfits on my cosplay blog so you peeps can go peek in there when this kimono blog has a slower course, if you want.
But I should mention that for some time now I've been looking for these very basic geta shoes; you know, those plain wooden ones with two teeth and –most commonly– black hanao. I don't know why but now when I actually search for them –with the intention to buy a pair– I can't for the life of me find any that would fit me and be in a price-range that my wallet can swallow, gaah! It's so typical, I swear. xD My luck is so beautiful...
