As promised to a few people, I took pics of the Jusco Yukata Fair :) Here's a not-so-small post about it!
In anticipation of Bon Odori, which is growing more and more popular every year, Jusco decided to have a yukata fair this year. I don't know if they've had it before, but when my friend told me about it, I definitely had to go and check it out!
The fair wasn't held at all Jusco outlets. In KL, it was only held in the Mid Valley outlet - which is incredibly convenient for me, since it's so near my office!
The location in the outlet was quite easy to spot - from the Center Court entrance, you can already see some pretties to entice you in.
Then you just walk straight in and you'll be greeted by a couple of mannequins in yukata.
Walking along the perimeter of the area, which is quite large. This side is showing more of the kids' yukata.
The screen was playing a video on how to wear yukata. It gathered quite a crowd when it was still on! ^^;
Just look at the amount of choice we have for women's yukata! *sighs dreamily*
This set was one of the more complete, but also more expensive sets.
I took a picture of the area that displayed lots of nice parasols, geta and bags, but I didn't take pics of the area for men's yukata, obi kazari, kanzashi, obijime, fans and other random deco stuff.
The price range was pretty decent for some of the stuff! I'm just going to put up a price list for reference if they have another fair next year XD
Women's yukata set (yukata + tsuke obi) : RM129 for most, with some at RM399
Men's yukata set (yukata + kaku obi) : RM129 per set
Kids' yukata set (yukata + obi, type of obi varies with age) : RM89 each
Folding Fan : RM29
Uchiwa Fan : RM10
Parasol : RM39
Geta : RM29
Decorative lace for obi : RM119
Obi Kazari : RM69
Obijime : RM49 - RM59
I'm afraid that's all I remember ^^;; I didn't buy any bags or kanzashi, so I don't remember how much they cost. I hope they'll have another one of these next year! It sure saves alot of hassle from dealing with Paypal, shipping and customs, and is pretty decently priced, considering the quality of some of the items!
Ok, I think this post has gotten quite long enough. I'll stop here for now, and will post on my purchases later ^_^ (I'm currently working on that, so it won't take too long before I post it, I hope!)
