Dear Ichiroya newsletter readers,
Hello, this is Mei. These days I'm interested in "time slip photos". Have you heard of it? It is to make similar photos like old ones with same poses in similar clothes at the same place. Irina Werning, she is an originator of it. "Back to the future" is her famous works. Now I really want to try it! So I'm planning to make them with my little sister, with today's top photo. (Laughing in yellow kimono is my sister, and funny face in red kimono is... yes, me)
For what? Well, it's for my mom as a birthday present! It seems so difficult I think... We have to look for that place, need kimonos, and practice that funny face. haha My sister said to me "You are crazy!" about my plan to make kimonos. Well, first, I need large plain clothes. Second, I cut them into kimono(girl's kimono) shape. And then, I draw pictures like those with paints. Done! It looks easy but I'm not sure I can do it well. So my sister is right. haha This year is memorial year for my sister. She will graduate from university this spring. That's why this plan came up to my mind!
I wore my mom's Furisode Kimono at coming‐of‐age ceremony and graduation ceremony. And now, it is my sister's turn. My mom's Furisode Kimono might feel happy. It is chosen and bought by her mom, my grandma. So my grandma also feel happy. After making my time slip photo, I will show you. Oh, now I'm excited! Okay. I gotta look for some clothe for making kimonos first!
By the way, today's my recommend items are here!
I wanna introduce funny, charming, and unique design like my face in red kimono.
