Makeup Practice 5/25

We had an opportunity to practice doing our geiko and maiko style makeup that we do for our henshin performances. It was a chance for some of us to brush up on our skills, and our newest member did her own makeup for the first time.

Green Ro Kakeshita

I'm so excited that I won this green ro (yes, RO) kakeshita today on YJA! It's a little bolder and brighter than what I usually use for my maiko henshin, but because it was a summer fabric, there's no way I could let that one go.

I just hope it will be here before the next event so the girls won't die of heat stroke!!!

More pictures of Tsuki no Ie Okiya at MTAC 2014

One of our guests kindly let me use his photos from a few of our panels at MTAC 2014. Here are some from our makeup and kitsuke panel as well as the ozashiki (sadly, none from the tea ceremony).
