Detail shots of my new treasure! ;w; The painstaking detail on this thing is amazing. The shishi and temari are embroidered with gold and silver threads, and the botan (peonies) have a stunning amount of colors.

It’s definitely not as flashy as some more contemporary kakeshita (bridal furisode), which leads me to believe it’s around the same age as my Showa-era shishi uchikake (outer robe, worn open and nowadays only worn as bridal attire over a kakeshita). I’ll definitely post photos of that too once I take it out for its yearly airing-out.

It has a sense of use, in terms of small stains here and there, particularly on the inner lining, some small snags in some of the embroidery, and some tiny holes in the bottom of one of the sleeves. But it’s still in amazing condition in my opinion, and I feel so lucky to have found it.

The Molten Diabolic Ibanez Prestige created by Hutchinson Guitars. This is absolutely fantastic!!! <3

“Celebrating the release of ‘Diablo III’ earlier this year, the Molten Diabolic draws its namesake from Blizzard Entertainment’s iconic video game franchise, taking Hutchinson’s original Molten Lava concept and infusing it with a shard of the Black Soulstone. Both the mystical stone and the hand carved lava flow have been illuminated by an incredible LED array recessed into the guitar top.”
