About me

Location United States
Introduction I'm a kimono-addicted belly dancer. I've started a modest collection of vintage and new kimonos and obis and I'm learning how to dress myself in them. I'm pretty much obsessed with learning anything and everything about japanese textiles. I also make some of my own bellydance costumes. I've been dancing for 5 years now and am working up to giving professional quality performances. This is family-oriented stuff so no pervy comments allowed!
