My Japanese costume

Finally, this is the costume I designed. The Nara styled upper shirt I designed, is made in silk from Vietnam, done by a dress-maker in China who specializes in opera costume. The silk obi (belt) I designed and hand painted in Kyoto under the guidance of Yuzen artist Mr. Ishida. My mom sewed it together and now it is a beautiful costume that I will be wearing in Yogyakarta to watch the Wayang theatre performance.
