Hello!
I'm sorry for asking this but I don't suppose you'd accept taikomochi related art, would you? Do you know of a group that would allow male (or both genders) entertainers' art?

Hello~ I just wanna ask something... Most of the website I surfed said Otaiko Musubi isn't suitable for Furisode... I know how to tie Fukura Suzume and Bunko Musubi but I feel inconvenient using that kind of Musubi and it needs someone to help me to tie it sadly none of my friends and family knows how to tie the musubi... :/ I can tie Otaiko Musubi real quick and I feel convenient with it... Wonder if Otaiko Musubi can be suitable for Furisode... D: ???

From everything I've read and been told, otaiko musubi isn't really suitable with furisode. Bunko would work, but fukura suzume would look fabulous with it! :) Really, if otaiko is what you're comfortable with, then you should still go for it. :) Once you have more practice with the other musubi, then you can wear those in the future.
