One of my good friends has been together with her husband for 11 years (including the years they’ve been dating) and officially will be married for six years this coming Sunday.
I thought I’d surprise her with something she cannot find in any shop.

Right is the one I played fish effect on the kimono design for a bit of fun.
Japanese call these kimono ladies “Mikaeri Bijin” which is the direct translation for “a beauty looking back”. I’ve initially posted this drawing by the title “Maiko Lady” but realised Maiko has white make-up and usually arrange their hair in an updo style. My bad for all the confusion! I will just call her a kimono lady instead. 🙂
