BJD Kimono, Black Formal Furisode by InarisansCrafts BJD Kimono, Black Formal Furisode by InarisansCrafts
Sold out!

Im playing my lovely boys are living in ancient Japan and they are wrapped in the layers of most expensive silks.

Im sewing luxurious kimonos for my noble Japanese youths to wear. These vintage fabrics are taken from real antique kimonos I have ordered from Japan. For this beautiful black kimono ensemble I have sacrificed the real very formal tomesode with two phoenixes embroidered of shining gold and silk threads. I have used just one phoenix for this kimono. Other phoenix is waiting for second ensemble. As these two embroidered phoenixes are different, so its absolutely impossible to reiterate presented kimono.

This formal kimono set is for Emperor I think. It has the red lining used for most formal clothes.

There is inner kimono as well. It was sewn from other silk kimono with dyed flowers and small houses. This pattern is cute and very traditional in Japan. The lining is dark yellow colour silk what resembles the heavy old gold shining. These two fabrics are matching perfectly.

And the last peak of this kimono set is the golden obi of course. The obi tied in Sunrise Drum bow for ceremonial and formal wear.

My boys are dressed in kimonos I sew myself. The materials are real antique kimono fabrics. Silk.

It is all in Japanese traditions - shyness is a gift and a good etiquette :tribute:
by the way, I don't much about kimono, what makes this kimono a man's kimono rather then girls:?

Yes, there are the differences in man's and woman's kimono - in colors, length, patterns, wearing style, accessories... a lot of differences. There are strict rules and old traditions in every aspect of kimono culture. Too much to explain here - if you are interested - search for information on internet :)
Actually I'm sewing women kimonos and dressing my boys. Just because women kimonos are beautiful :tribute:
you answer my question, what was wondering was how can a man kimono look so much like a girls

These kimonos are not for people to wear anymore. They are very old, stained, sometimes ripped and they have terrible mothballs‘ odor. They are form various flea markets in Japan. One big e-shop in Osaka is selling them worldwide for few dollars (but the shipping price from Japan is huge anyway).
They are called „Fabric for material or display“. Every time I need unseam them and then wash them. And remove stains if it is possible at all. I‘m expert in stain removing now. The odor in my bathroom is unbelievable sometimes. Good thing I have ventilator here :shithitsthefan: But I‘m happy doing that. I‘m thinking these fabrics will become fantastic doll kimonos soon. And the old fabrics are softer and gentler than the new ones. I believe I‘m giving second life for these old kimonos.
