Brought to you by popular request, it's maiko and geiko looking funky!

We all have those moments where we are caught off guard; even maiko can look funny if they aren't careful!

So, post pictures of maiko pulling strange faces, or something seems a bit off like a stalker looming in the corner, or something generally funny. Make us smile.

Here are my contributions:

The last one isn't funky, I just think Tsuruha looks cute  :smil3: with just a hint of Suzuha and Mameteru

I love Wakana's "Oh.... reeeally?" expression in this one. She looks delightfully sarcastic and irritated.

And ichiemi, that has got to be one of my favourite pics of Suzuha ever. I often wonder situation what inspired that face.

Oh my gosh, that picture of Mamechiho and the duck is so adorable! Does anyone know who took it, and if there's a larger version available somewhere? I'd love to make it into my wallpaper.

That one's a fake, I believe. I still wonder where she went to be able to sing karaoke while on her "maiko tour", if she was doing henshin.

Oh. :oops:
I knew she wasn't a maiko, but hadn't thought of han'gyoku. She seems pretty popular, doesn't she?

It occurred to me there might be a simpler explanation: what if she's actually wearing it to not smudge makeup on her kimono while sleeping?

(Or, maybe she just fell asleep and one of her friends decided to play a little trick on her... :P )

I really love the duck picture of Mamechiho, btw - there's a certain similarity between the her and the duck  :D

Does anyone have the picture of the maiko wearing the big ridiculous glasses? I think it was Wakana but I'm not sure.  :oops:

Surprised this one wasn't posted yet - sleepy maiko baby bib!


What the...? What, what? Whatwhatwhat?? What??? WHAT?!! SOMEONE EXPLAIN!


I have already seen maiko using bib while eating in a train, with all atire on... I guess eating during a trip is too dangerous for the kimono...!
And bout the fact she's sleeping, well... too many cheezburgerz I guess  :P


It occurred to me there might be a simpler explanation: what if she's actually wearing it to not smudge makeup on her kimono while sleeping?

(Or, maybe she just fell asleep and one of her friends decided to play a little trick on her... :P )

I really love the duck picture of Mamechiho, btw - there's a certain similarity between the her and the duck  :D



I always thought it was to prevent smuding makeup on the expensive kimono. I mean, why else would she be wearing it unless if she just gets REALLY REALLY sleepy after eating?  :D

Snow white is Geiko Mamefuku. Obake costumes are always amusing.

Wow did you notice Cinderella even has her eyebrows matching her hair? :D They look like really nice costumes.

Think my favorite so far has to be Mamechiho and the duck. She just looks so intent and curious, oblivious to the probable crowd of gaijin snapping pictures of her. So cute! :bunbun:
