Bon Odori 2010
I remembered last year I bought a yukata from ebay.au which turn out to be too big for me & the fabric kinda faded. After much research online, I decided to sew one on my own. Seems quite easy.
Went by Kamdar in KL to pick out my material coz there have more varieties there. Picked a blue with pink flowers on it. Cheap cheap... the fabric above is actually for KS (male version). Also blue but black strips instead. He's fabric actually more expensive than mine.
I drew out the layout onto my notebook and measured my body size to make sure I cut the fabric correctly. If too small, I'm in deep sh*t, if too big, still can alter.
Tadah!!! Easy peasy. I even added lining inside coz I purposely picked a softer fabric as I know Bon Odori is gonna be hot hot hot. But the lining would make sure I don't "expose" myself too much.
I remembered the last time I made an Obi, I picked the wrong type of material plus my bow looked really big. This time, I didn't change the basic much. Only the material & size. Though it still looks a little fake compared to a tied obi, but I applaud myself on my butterfly obi.
We arrive at the Matsushita Shah Alam stadium quite late. Especially with the lack of parking & loads of traffic jams coming from all directions.
Thousands of people
Let the dance begin!!!
Bidding thankful & farewell
Dunno where's the toilet? Don' worry, Doraemon knows the way
My contrasting Obi.
Maybe I should have made the belt a different colour & the bow another colour.
Then it'll definately standout.
It this too big?
Bought a pair of devil's horns
Cool leh! Devil's horns being sold at a Worshipping of the Dead event
