Costume geisha memoir
Wondering what’s with all the recent interest in Japanese geishas? It all stems from “Memoirs of a Geisha”, by Arthur Golden, a best selling novel that inspired a movie and a kimono geisha costume fashion fad. Don’t worry if your daughter is hoping to be a halloween costume geisha girl. The word "geisha" does not mean "prostitute," as Westerners used to believe, it means "artisan" or "artist." Geisha often trained from childhood in order to master the arts of music, dance, clever conversation, poetry, games, and competition between rivals. A costume geisha toddler is perfectly plausible, and adorable!
Adult costume geisha come in two distinct varieties; the modest traditional Japanese kimono and the purely Halloween costume geisha. The purely costume geisha is the one with the tiny skirt, satin fabric, and sometimes a Chinese neckline. No need to feel guilt if you’d rather be in a sexy geisha costume. You don’t have to go historically accurate; after all it’s Halloween, so go with the costume that will allow you to have the most fun! One thing you’ll be pleased to find this year, is the availability of the geisha girl costume wig. It will make your costume more easily recognized and you don’t have to go through the hassle and torture of doing it yourself. So go ahead be the adult costume geisha girl of your dreams!
Want to get a geisha costume plus size? You’ve made a great choice! The traditional kimono “obi” or belt, is wide and stiff. Small waists weren’t considered desirable, so the belt area was stuffed to make the torso into a nice solid tube from ribs to hips. Its great for bust and back support, as well as maintaining good posture!
