Happy Easter everyone! I did my main Easter fun yesterday, which included a taiko performance at an event and a fun evening at a friend's house for a casual dinner to help decorate a bunny cake and color Easter eggs! I had not colored eggs in years, and it was really fun. The host had bought one of those Paas brand dye kits you can get. Everything was the about same as it was 20 years ago: the little tablets of colors, the little wire egg holder that doesn't work well, etc. The main change: lots of stickers, which we didn't use on the eggs.
But besides Easter week, I have been working on a Japanese-inspired costume project (That project will have to have a separate post!) for a performance artist. While looking for kimono for the project, I of course found a few things for myself. That is the worst thing about having to look for stuff on eBay with other people's money, you end up spending your own! So I was smitten by a stunning and bright geometric Meisen kimono with a yabane print and 3-season hanhaba obi. I intend these to go together but I will see when they arrive. These are the seller's photos:
Speaking of bright and cheerful, this is the cute obi I found that might work with the kimono:
