Did Someone Say "It's Almost Black Friday"?

Yes, I have decided to thin out my collection! My kimono tastes have changed over the years and I have realized some items I have only worn once, so it's time to sell to someone who appreciates these items.
Soon I will be posting info on everything for sale here. No, I'm not going to do the whole ebay thing, this is just for my blog readers and friends.

Here are some teaser pictures, there will be more for sale including three yukata, more obi, a couple more handbags, and of course zori.
I will post dimensions and prices of everything and even estimated shipping. All you have to do is contact me and I will figure it out. Feel free to ask questions as well. If you covet one of the items below, email me ASAP and I will set it aside.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Amaterasu Omikami for the All Souls Procession

Hello everyone!
I usually give a teaser about what I am doing for the All Souls Procession, but this year, I became so busy, I had to wait until after. But at least there are some nice photos.
This year, I made another mask from a kit by Wintercroft; I customized a mask to represent Amaterasu Omikami, the Shinto sun goddess. The theme this year was related to alchemy, the marriage of the sun and moon. I wore my indigo and white odori yukata with a yellow han eri and yellow obi. Let me know what you think.

Here is the mask in process:

And the finished mask with yukata:
