Maiko Hiki 001

My first Maiko Hikizuri (and also my first hikizuri). Originally the eBay auction went for 2500.00 but who ever won it never paid up, and I received a tip from a friend to contact the seller and make an offer. I offered them 500 and luckily they accepted! =D

Geisha Hiki 001

My first Geisha Hikizuri. It was originally listed as sold when I first saw it on Ichiroya but like my maiko hiki the original buyer decided to back out and I got another chance. Shortly after I found out it was worn at 2 erikae Mahiro’s and Makino’s =D What a treasure!!!

Geisha Hiki 002

My second Geisha Hikizuri. I found this beauty as a buy it now on eBay. It was love at first sight… I have a weakness for wave motifs.. 🙂 What a gorgeous art piece.
