Kimono Demo

Yes! I will be doing a demo again. The 17th of June I will be dressing two young ladies in Hilversum. One I will dress as a bride in a vintage brides furisode and one as a geisha. To be honest I am a little scared, because the weather is hot and humid. But, I really want to do this, hoping this will give me new contacts so... I'll take the risk with some of my kimono. Lets see which geisha kimono would not make me cry if she got even more stained.
And what should I wear myself? Yukata would be most comfortable, but I guess way to informal, maybe if I dressed it up with a nagajuabn and a nice obi with accessories? But then it's still way to hot and I could just as well wear a synthetic ro kimono... oh choices!
And... now to find a friend who will be willing to make pictures. Because of course I will need pictures. I can take pictures when the ladies are dressed, but not during the dressing make up event and I want pictures of that too.

Yes! Great to hear about the demo!
Could you send me more details about the demo (where, when?)? I already send you an email thursday to your vanhiertottokio.com email, so you should have mine...
Unfortunately my furisode can't make it :-(
But I am very curious to see the demo!

Strange indeed...
Anyway, I'm coming to Hilversum, and I'll bring my camera with me. I looked on the site of Van Zadelhoff, but it's correct that the demo isn't mentioned on their site? And is there a fee to get in?
I do hope you've gotten my mail, otherwise let me know if you didn't. I'm curious for your opinion about the furisode ^_^
