  1. While this is a rather typical look for them, you really have to appreciate the tailoring of their clothing.

    1. Without question ....... impressive.
      I love the form and the fall of the skirts.

    2. Back to the skirts again on the dresses.
      Is the look achieved by a double lining with a starched fabric, or a special type of petticoat (jupon) or is it just the first rate quality of the material?
      Any experts who can help?

  2. Toujours pas d’originalité dans ce look presque identique pour toutes les deux ; bien ravissantes quand-même !

      Sur ces photos, c'est la princesse Mako qui a la frange à gauche ; elle est vêtue d'une couleur presque blanche contrairement à sa sœur !

  6. Are they wearing the same pin/brooch or are they different? It's hard to tell from the photos.

  8. I like this formal dresses. I like the darker blue one more, because the sleeves are straight and more modern. At the other dress the sleeves are to (don't know how to say in english..) puffy??

  9. The dresses are definitely lovely and extremely detailed/well made. I do have to chuckle a bit, the last photo, would scream "my what big fee you have"... I KNOW its a traditional outfit, it just tickled my funny bone.

  10. What kind of silly theatre is this?

    The women in the japanse emparial house seem to have a "uniform" of monochrome colors and long skirts independently of the occasion.
    Boring and so out of time.
    It's just a theatre show ..

    1. Boring, for us in the western world, maybe, but it's their culture.
      And that I respect.

  11. Just a comical thought: My what big feet you have, from a fairytale about grandma and a wolf.
