She was one of my very first G3s. I got her when Walmart was selling 2 packs of G3s for $3.99. I'll always love Kimono.

I love her, I got her because I love Kimono's Townhouse. I thought her symbols were maybe ugu isu. Taffeta what do you think?

Honestly going to have to google her symbols as she is far away and I can't remember. I know I have seen several different types of lanterns here also, but without checking I didn't want to make an assumption.

Ah, ok, they are round lanterns. I have seen those here - on the side of boats and also around mise in mountain temples. I may have a photo, not sure. But whether the style has been coopted by Japan from China or whatever, not all Japanese lanterns look exactly like the famous thunder gate one at Asakusa. Maybe that is where the cobfusion is - Hasbro went for a more generic lantern rather than the iconic elongated ones that appear a lot outside shrines and temples.

I genuinely think they were going for a 'matsuri' theme, and I think it works...

Edit to add: I found this example which I think demonstrates it quite well.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
When it comes to matsuri there are lots of different types of lanterns in various different shapes and whatever, and since the kimono is common matsuri dress, I really think that's how we ought to consider Kimono. I think she's actually culturally correct, but it helps to know that connection. If you google 日本祭りの着物 (Kimono at Japanese festivals) or 日本祭りの灯 (lanterns at Japanese festivals) you can see lots of different examples of both :D


The only uguisu I know is a type of bird that is one of the first birds to be heard in spring in Japan.

Kimono is possibly at the top of my wish list. I wanted her as a kid and never got her. Someday she will be in my collection!

I have always wanted her because she seems like one of the 'classic' G3's to me.

I always include her in my "orginal G3's" in my head! There was a coloring sheet/flyer/little movie when G3 first came out, with Sparkleworks and Pinkie Pie and Sunny Daze and Kimono... and more, of course... and the ones on that flyer are the ones I consider the classics. Good call, Babypowder!

I love her. I actually love her design and colours so much that I based an OC character in my fanfiction off her.  :biggrin:

(As a kid my sister had her, not me, and I always coveted her! She was one of the first G3s I got when I started collecting again.)

Well said, Taffeta! :iconclap:

Anyway, back on-topic.. I don't have Kimono but I would love her :) She is very beautiful, one of the "classic" G3s imo. Plus I love her in Kimono's Townhouse ^^

I have so many G3s, but for some reason, I don't have Kimono! Odd... I don't actively buy G3s very often, but I would like to have her some day.
