HUZZAH. My finished concept for this month’s theme for the Character Design Challenge on FB. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go too crazy with the patterns on her kimono but i think i’ll add more flowers later. :D Enjoy!
Meiji Geisha Hikizuri.
Mid to late Meiji period (1880-1911), Japan. The Kimono Gallery. A rare style of formal Geisha antique dancing
kimono featuring yuzen-dyed pictures of geishas dancing and playing music.
Occasional touches of embroidery. Five mon. A design of checkerboard-type
squares was popular among some Edo-period Kabuki actors, as well as on kimonos
seen on several photos of geisha and oiran dating to the 1880’s to about 1905.
