you will note that japanese ghosts have no feet! hence they do not have footwear! should i chop my legs off?

*laughs* that's a bit extreme. besides, have you been practicing your floating lately? (I think not ;)

Since Leicester has such a high asian population I'm sure you could find something appropiate. Maybe something like the getas that I linked to in white? The kimino should be long enough your feet can't be seen much anyways.

remember asian in the uk means "south asian". there is no east asian district in leicester, to my knowledge.

Well to be authentic you should wear zori on your feet as they are the formal footwere that goes with a kimono and obi.

Footbinding was Chinese, not Japanese.

no - tis a party.

i shall explain

the theme of the party is things starting with Y.

i had originally suggested "ghosts" as the theme

Japanese ghosts are called Yurei

so I can go as a japanese ghost, and then fulfil both criteria!

sad, no?

A Ghosts party.. what a cool idea. Lots of people dressed in sheets. You wouldn't even need to worry about getting home as you'd have your bed with you. Bonus!
