Matsuri Meow by Zombiesmile Matsuri Meow by Zombiesmile
Wearing yukata and going to summer festivals is one of my fondest memories of my childhood spent in Japan. Fireworks 
The one thing I miss the most is the food!

If you could have  a yukata (summer kimono), what motif would you choose? (I wish I could get one with cats, or maybe cockatiels. :P )


BTW, I have a used kimono shop now: www.etsy.com/uk/shop/MikikoArt

Tools: ink, pilot fountain pen, copic multiliner, photoshop for colours.

more cats:

I actually have a yukata (which I bought in Osaka in 2009), it's light blue with red gold fish on it.
I love it, but there aren't many occasions for me to wear a yukata :-)

I'd go with a highly stylized flame motif, but in very much not-fiery colors. Like blues or black/white/greys, that sort of thing. I like the shapes of fire, but color-wise, I'm absolutely a winter.

I found a pachimari aloha shirt over here a while back, so maybe a yukata with that would be fun as well. I'm honestly not even a fan of the pachimari character, but it worked surprisingly well on the shirt

I would like one with a masculine floral pattern. I always thought that flowers should be enjoyed by men and women alike. :)

Maybe some hibiscus, tiger lilies, nice flowers with large-spreading leaves. :) And a blue background with the flowers in their natural colors.

I was wondering where you'd gotten off to!  Hee!  Very cute pic.  I actually have a Yukata (one of my girlfriends was Japanese and got it for me during a trip home, and my boyfriend has insisted I carefully preserve it as a happy memory).  It has a cherry theme... the actual fruit, not the tree or blossom.

Cute art!  My yukata (if I could get one) would be goldfish- specifically fantails and veiltail varieties, maybe some orangas (favorite types).  I love goldfish but man SO MUCH POOP!  Large planted tanks are a big plus keeps water quality good but still lots of poop to clean up!

What was those festivals like?
im korean but i was adopted young into the us, i never experienced any asian culture.
sorry to ask such probably an annoying question, but is it similar to slice of life anime?
im addicted to those kinda shows...i know, im trash ;_;

Hmmmm I was always drawn towards geometric-abstract flower motifs for yukata. You know, the style that the Japanese were traditionally fond of, especially for the family mon.

I'd probably go with a cherry blossom motif if I ever get the chance to travel to Japan and go to a summer festival.
