Odori Kimono are MEANT for partying…

Odori kimono are normally bright, longer and thinner than your average kimono as dancers need to move about in them and will get hot. It means they are perfect for wrapping a corset round for clubbing. I wore this in the middle of summer so I just wore a thin hada juban underneath with no juban as I probably would have fried. This is the easiest way to do ‘gothic geishesque’ in kimono. Its a far cry from the style of real Geisha, so this is more stylised kimono-hime (kimono princess)

It is silk and painted in superb condition and I also have the paler one, as I love twins. This is the only pair of twins I have in kimono and the only odori kimono as they are super popular due to the fact that most of them are hikizuri (padded hen with a trailing skirt) and great for Geisha and Maiko cosplay.


I need to put together a cosplay outfit, I keep trying to get a pale yellow and peach kimono to be Kaoru Kamiya from Rurouni Kenshin.

    1. I already have a purple furisode with pink blossom!

      Not exact, but I also have a similar hakata striped lilac obi coming in the post…I can so do that version of her already!

      1. That would be a perfect combination. Then pair it with some pastel obiage and obijime and add a large pink bow on your hair and you’re set to go ^_^
