these wonderful women of japan .. i love her kimonos and obis and espacially their makeup is so amazing! i love these detail the most ..
i read a lot about this culture, so i have a nice basic knowledge, but i am not an expert of course XD .. i just know the difference between maiko and geiko(=geisha), their background, the facts about the makeup, hairstyle and a little bit of the kimonos..
it is not the same with the movie the geisha, that is just a movie made by hollywood.. full of cliche and wrong informations, but nice to look at it ^^;
look at this wonderfül kimono! the colors .. the motive .. just stunning..and she looks beautiful in it as well. she is a maiko..her hair, long-arm-kimono and color and motive, accessoire and her makeup belong to one. in contrast both women in background are geikos.
a dance from two maikos i think
i know the first impression is not so good, but after short time one is used to it and it is very interesting after all.
