Odori programmes and a new maiko hiki!!!

Hey peeps,
sorry I haven't updated in ages.
So firstly links to odori programmes on Flickr:
1982 Miyako odori
1952 Kamogawa odori
1999 Kyo odori
2000 Kyo odori
2001 Kyo odori
There will be more odori programmes up in a while but my scanner is dying on me, its taking like 3 minutes to scan one page!!!
And my goodie bag came in the post today, so I got my new maiko han'eri and a new maiko hiki!!! I also got another kimono that needs sewing up so will post pics of that when its all done up
So new maiko hiki:You can see the discolouration and where the sleeve tucks used to be so I took a chance on buying it cuz it was just labeled as a "furisode" so luckily it paid out!

maiko photo

I'm just using this space to host a photo so I can link it in IG :)
I don't own the photo and I have lost the original source of the photo.
If its yours or you know where its from please let me know :)

Yay, goodies!

Sorry I haven't posted in ages!
I won a couple of kimono but I'm waiting till they get here before taking photos and showing them off, I hope it will surprise you ;) I took a risk buying them and hope it pays off :s

I'm finally scanning and uploading some stuff, the reason why its taking so long is because my scanner must be dying because its taking forever to scan something!!!
But I have 2002 maiko portraits from the kyoto hanamachi book that are worth checking out.
I've also got some lovely photos of Katsuno as a maiko.
And today I've uploaded a 1962 Miyako odori programme!

And coming up in the next few days/weeks are:
1982 Miyako odori.
1952 Kamogawa odori
1999-2008 Kyo odori.
So heaps coming up so keep tuned!
