Well, my recent kimono shopping in Second Life has lead me to a little place in the Semple Truth Sim. The sim is an Asian-themed sim, with a shopping mall, Geisha Tea House, and if you explore beyond that there is a peaceful country-side where there is a huge Buddah statue or shrine (again very peaceful).
Most of the shops in the mall are scaled-down versions of many of the shop owners main shops and many will offer to teleport you to their main shop or give you a land mark to their other shops. Cherry Tokyo has a shop there (see previous post). I found my Geisha hair there (me sings "I love it")!
I perused through the area and found a shop that had kimonos that caught my eye (price and style!). The name of the shop is the Japanese Goods Shop, and is owned by Giorno Brando.
The pictures and prices of the kimono were very nice (free-200L). I purchased the Black Autumn Kimono and the Free Kimono. Then proceeded to do my normal routine of: taking pictures of the shop, and head home for more shots! lol!
Black Autumn Kimono
Ahh back home! I put on the Black Autumn Kimono (200L). This purchase included 2 collar styles, tabi, and zouri. Please feel free to click on a picture to see a larger image for detail purposes.

The colors of this kimono were beautiful and most notable to me was the obi tie and the floral detail. I enjoy clothing w/detail. I was pleased with this kimono.
Well, due to a computer problem, I lost the pictures that I took at the Semple Truth sim (frowns). So, I searched for more information on this vendor and find out that he has two other places. I teleport to the Mukuhari Location first [Giorno Brando, Makuhari (240, 194, 22)], then over to the Havelock location through a teleport located at the Mukuhari site [JAPANESE GOODS SHOP, Havelock (224, 134, 191)] Havelock Shrine.
The women's line of clothing. Price range from zero to 200 Lindens.
