Kimono for sale

I'm moving to Japan next month, and I can't really take my entire kimono collection. So I thought I'd offer them up to you to help with my airfare instead of leaving them in storage for a billion years. This is a great oppertunity for those in the UK because shipping isn't going to be sky high.

I have alot of casual polyester kimono here, some worn once, others NEVER worn (still got tags on). Also lots of hanhaba obi.

Deals can be made on multiple items. Plus a free gift of obijime or tabi for multiple sales! Shipping will be calculated on your location. Most of these are L size items, I am 174cm tall and 130/32cm width, and they just about fit me so under that is ideal. More exact measurements can be taken if you're interested.

I'm sorry for the crappy pictures and that I didn't unfold most of them, can you imagine how long it'd take to refold it all :/

Sorry that I haven't updated everyone.

I've decided that I can't maintain this community anymore. Partly because of personal stuff and partly because I'm pretty much spending all my time studying now.
So if anyone wants this community, let me know.
I'm sure nobody is in the least bit bothered by this, so I won't ask anyone.
I'm just going to stop updating.

I wanted to post some neo-Japaneseque fashion I saw in an issue of the Gothic and Lolita Bible I happen to have.

1. Name? Camila
2. Sex? Female
3. Location? New York City
4. Favourite (Japanese) brands? h.NAOTO, Comme des Garcons...I like looking at them, anyway, because it's all too expensive for me :x
5. Do you own anything that could be described as "neo japanesque"? Yeah, a pair of sandals from a brand called Japonica xD They're red and use what looks and feels like kimono fabric. All their designs are pretty interesting and beautiful, and I'm sure they have a web site, so if I remember what it is, I'll post the link. Also, a purse and tissue pouch with a traditional pattern, and some hair clips made of yukata fabric.
5a. Did you buy or make the described items? Well, I bought the sandals in New York, the clips in a JUSCO in Okinawa, and the pouch and purse were given to me by an elderly Japanese lady who liked me :x
5b. Any pictures? Ordinary pictures of yourself are also welcome!
The items described aboveCollapse )
