Treasures of the Deep Accessory Set

Post by appledainty » Fri Apr 21, 2017 3:52 pm

So, I'm a big fan of ocean and pirate themed items. As such, I've been developing my own kimono accessory set that follows this theme.

I've currently got plans to make my own obi, obijime, obidome, kanzashi, and maybe a purse shaped like a koi. We'll see how far I actually get. XD I usually wait to post about my craft projects on my blog when they are finished, but I have no patience and want to share.

So far I've only finished my obijime, which I crocheted out of seed beads.

I've started on the design for my obi, I'll probably upload when I get home tonight.

And I'm hoping to start sculpting my obidome this weekend. :)

Soooo, this is my komon. Right now it's the only kimono I own. I am in love with it and it's swirly color pattern, but my husband thinks it looks like the Jazz pattern. That just makes me love it more, because I'm a terribly 90s nostalgia child. I think my next purchase is going to be black and white vertical stripes because black, white and red is my very favorite combo. You can do so much with a simple black and white stripe pattern.

Below is a work-in-progress version of the obi design I've come up with. It's going to be nagoya style. I am intending to have it printed on a sateen-finish cotton fabric, which will have a nice mild sheen.

I'm a little obsessed with scale patterns and also jellyfish. I originally did just one design - the dark blue/purple/aqua, but I had an idea for a second one and it's easy enough to recolor when you've got separate layers in Photoshop. The green/purple I'm thinking about doing a fancy ruffled giant clam with a seahorse, and the dark blue/purple/aqua will have jellyfish.

A little psycedelic (spelling?) to me, but love the color combo!
What color accessories will you be using? (Obiage, haneri etc)

I picked up this haneri from kimono-asobi.net

And this obiage

Along with a white nagajuban, but that's all I've got right now. I am considering using my haneri as a pattern for embroidering my own in the future.
