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).

  1. ::dies from all the pretty Maiko-henshin::

    You all look fantastic! There's one photo up there where you have the perfect mysterious geisha-smirk. Absolutely epic.

    I can't wait to sic Tsutsujime-san on Tsukiteru-san for Konpira Fune Fune - she's the fastest of us!! All your photos are gorgeous, and your sisters are so very beautiful!!

    I don't know the dance your two sisters are performing, you said it was Sakura, Sakura? I haven't seen videos of this before! If it's to the famous Japanese folk tune, it's a very pretty piece! Do you have any videos of this performance? I'd love to hear you play!



  2. Wonderful photos! You all look fabulous in your kimonos.
    Wow,you're playing shamisen! I take my hat off to you.
    I'm happy to see such nice ozashiki performance. Thank you for posting this :)

  3. Thank you, Kumiko-san! I've been playing the shamisen for about 3 years now, and it's always fun for me when I'm able to perform. =)
