Japanese clothes pulled for Obon...

If you're looking for us at Obon tomorrow, we'll be hard to miss. Kataginu kamishimo (in green/purple and gray/blue) with sandogasa (great big hats).

We've got a spare, as long as you don't mind the annoying wicker basket inside...

A. has wrapped the wicker frames in fabric, so they are way more wearable now (and mine doesn't do the gasa askew thing any more)

Darn it, I wish we could! Kai's in dev hell right now. Next year perhaps. Do you get into town for any of the SF Japantown festivals?

And does one of you know how to tie an obi decently? Dyslexic clumsy me can't even tie shoelaces, and I want to make a faux-obi; I wear just the flat part, matching fabric obi with bow on the back of the wheelchair.

I've seen those, and I may go with that for yukata and as my first effort, but I'd like something a little nicer than the clip-on butterfly eventually. I may have to get/make two obi (or one very long one) to go around me and the chair, in any case. (Think bucket seat.)

You're just a couple of wild and carrrrayzzzeeee guys!

I think we're a *no* because of box clearing and giving to a certain couple that's moving...


Have fun!

*Oh* when I initially asked about going Dave asked if "Obon" had to do with Scotch.

(I had to clarify the "o" with the hard "a" to get the point across.)

I love the tradition. All of us should have someone who loves us so much, they are willing to dance us out of hell.

Pictures please! Yes, I know I've seen the outfits before, but not the whole going out to festival time gear. Maybe next year I can join you. Hope you had fun!

Good seeing you there.

...and no I've barely processed the photos into storage places.
