Did you know: “Kimono” literally translated means “thing to wear”. Haven’t got a thing to wear to your party? Well now you do!
A typical woman’s kimono outfit consists of 12 or more separate pieces – it’s little wonder Japanese women have licensed professional kimono dressers on call for special occasions!
Don’t stress! We’ve made it easier for you at Fancy That! Costumes.
- Robe – floor length red satin w/embroidered asian bird & dragon motifs
- “Obi” – Sash – padded waist tie in patterend gold & red
- Pants – comfortable, elastic waisted back satin
Add a pair of wooden “geta” shoes & “tabi” split toe socks for an additional $10
- Always wrap your kimono left side over right (unless you’re dead, & being dressed for a burial…)
- To tie your obi, position the padded section at the back, with the “tail” of fabric hanging over the top of the padded section, gold patterned section up. Wrap the sash around your waist & secure hooks & eyes. Take red ties from the back & tie them around your waist, in a bow at the front.
