Then to my surprise I got a phone call a couple of weeks later telling me they would like to interview me! Eeek!
So off I went to do my 15 minutes interview where I talked about my craft and of course once it was over, I wanted to go home and forget about it. Dwelling on success or failure is a vicious circle for me so better to forget about it.
Then what do I hear after a few weeks but a another phone call saying they would like to invite me to appear on the show! Yes I was over the moon and a little bit dumbstruck at the same time.
What was I going to wear? What am I going to say? Oh god I am going to be on TV!!!!
Well since I have already decided on the kanzashi I was going to show off.
It is pretty much a show stopper which is why I chose it.
Now what to wear? Nothing too pale as it was being filmed outdoors and nothing too bright or my kanzashi would not shine so I went with my navy blue wool kimono!
I teamed it with my red obi as I did not want to make my outfit too busy and of course my favourite tan coloured boots. Well the last thing I wanted was to be sinking into the grass now.
It is a nice and simply outfit but I like it. The kimono has a nice retro modern feel to it and the obi is nice and stiff so I did not have to worry about the otaiko musubi shifting it shape which was good.
For hairstyle, I opted for a braided side bun as it was the most easy style to do and the most reliable. The last thing I wanted was my hair to be blown across my face and getting caught in my glasses and the kanzashi that I was wearing.
I should be informed of the transmission date soon!
Oh if you were wondering who interviewed me well here she is!
