      Lovely photo. Anyone know why she is wearing shidare kanzashi with a painted upper lip? As far as I knew, and as far as I've read, first year maiko wear shidare (dangling) kanzashi and don't paint their upper lip, which gives a cute young look. When a maiko enters her second year of training she stops wearing shidare kanzashi and she begins to paint her upper lip.

      I found a comment on geisha-kai's tumblr regarding this containing speculation that Tama-okaasan has let her paint her upper lip either because Mamefuji thinks she looks weird with only one lip painted, or that it was for a customer request.

      Given this, I wonder if Mamekiku is doing the same? Mamefuji had her misedashi IIRC a short while before Mamekiku, so perhaps not.

      Danielle Brabazon Nope, Mamekiku is only painting the bottom lip. Geisha apprentice (taken on the same day)

      Sometimes they paint both lips for a dance performance. Or maybe for a photoshoot. And I have seen Maiko in their second year still wearing shidare kanzashi,

      I'm wondering why there are little silver balls on the 'wisteria' or which over term describes it, I've never seen it on maiko kanzashi, is this just a well done henshin?

      XxOiranxX The picture is of Mamefuji of Gion Kobu's Tama Okiya and she is most definitely not a henshin. Here are pictures from her misedashi: youpv.exblog.jp/21415026

      Absolutely stunning work. The composition, colors and details are staggeringly beautiful.

      I love this beautiful portrait and its background history.
