Autumn Fairy - Kitsuke Concept Sketch
This year, the theme of the Anime North Kimono Fashion Show will be Fantasy! The powers that be have pushed me towards some more non-traditional, creative and even some over the top kitsuke styling this year, so I've decided to do some sketches to help me visualize the outfits we will be putting together. In most cases, I don't know who will be wearing which of these outfits yet, so there are a few details I've left out (mostly shoes and hair styles - as that will depend on the models).
This is my Autumn Fairy outfit. It will include my "Kusudama" Taisho Furisode, my autumn maru obi and han'eri, a flowing tulle skirt, some painted butterfly wings and some faux autumn leaves. I will include a branch of those leaves to mimic the props used in the spring cherry blossom dances.
