Fire Komon @ Mr. Gay Europe!

Hello everyone!

This past weekend was a very good one for me! Not only did I manage to visit my hometown after more than 4 years, but it was also the first time I got to dress-up ever since I was 5 or 6, when all this started :))

As some of you know from my facebook page, last weekend Mr. Gay Europe was held in the lovely Poiana Brasov ski resort... where there was a lot of snow.. for the whole weekend!!! Mr. Gay Italy won the competition. Well deserved, although I had a secret crush on Mr. Gay Ireland...

Deciding on my outfit was a complete fuss. I initially wanted to wear my early showa komon, then made plans for my furisode with musubi and all, and then finally decided on my fire-red komon with a very cute fan design, with my black based nagoya obi with kikko patterned clouds, hot orange obijime and pale pink ougi obiage.

This is the final result:

I look almost skinny in the pic below:

and something about his bow tie made me think i'd look good in a pic next to him:

All in all I had a wonderful time there! Aaand, I also wore my yellow, gold and silver saree:

I really missed my hometown.. so spending 3 days there was a complete and utter bliss!
