My Old Japanese Portrait

I'll be writing an 'antique' post about old japanese portrait. and have I told you that I'm a BIIIIG BIG fan of JAPANESE CULTURE? I love Japanese culture and everything!
T. Enami is my favorite japanese photographer, and his works really inspires me <3

Well, this is really interesting (for me) looking myself in antique photo style >.< 
I ask my BF (01.00 a.m): "look old enough yet? (pointing at pic no.2)"
my BF: "it looks like a cut-scene from a horror vid"
Me: (look at my own pic and..running to my bed with goosebumps!) L O L

my friend said that it looks like something were to appear from the left side of the photos.

my other besties said my pic looks like an old piece photos from FATAL FRAME 2  O___O

Here's the pic. enjoy~
old japanese style portrait 1
yes a bit blurred, I'm using 3 kind of image editor 'till I feel satisfied enough with the result. I can't do better than this for now because the quality of its original pic is super super poor. (taken with Canon digicam). And here's another 'new' version:
old japanese style portrait 2
Can you feel that something were to appear from the left side of this pic? awwwwwwwwwks.....*run*
so which one is scarier? first pic or second one?

and here's my bf in his tsumugi kimono and hakama:
I'm wearing a blue-grayish kimono with white-pinkish sakura pattern (haru haru time~ it's spring time~) one of my fave collection of komon kimono with chirimen fabric. The obi I'm wearing is actually a  REISOU, RYAKUSHIKI obi (with no back layer). It has a thick fabric that similar to hanhaba obi, but ryakushiki obi is a more formal type. I tied it in taiko musubi style =)
and yeaah, this obi is one of my favorite obi collection, it has a beautiful embroidery of a strok made with silver threads.

that would be all xD~
and DO I LOOK SCARY? hehehe...

Great pics - it has a haunting vibe to it, but not in a scary way - more of a vintage feel!

I told myself when I first saw this pics, "Ooh, so antique." But when I read your post and you mentioning how scary those look, I was totally creeped out! Haha I love the second picture too, eerie... I agree with your friends that anytime, a certain The Ring girl will appear out of nowhere! *covers myself with blanket* But nice pictures you got there! Seemed natural <3 Love Japan too! Kawaii *u*

Bibi said...

Thanks for the comment on my blog! The Muppets really make me remember my childhood as well, but I feel like if I would watch them again now, I'd know what they are talking about a bit better.

Great pictures, I like the first one best. Don't know why, maybe because the sepia gives it a more "old" feeling? Beautiful fabrics btw :)

Saving Capulet said...

oh you look beautiful in that kimono! I had a photo like that once, too! but my kimono was only borrowed, you and your bf look really cute in those photos, you should have a photo together wearing those <3
