Onnagata

The onnagata – literally ‘female-role’ – was a young male kabuki actor who took on female roles after women were banned from performing in the early 17th century. I was randomly browsing Marketplace for something else, and came across some geisha/maiko/kabuki makeups by Tuty’s. Then, I recalled coming across the most beautiful free kimono absolutely years ago when I was roaming the Kumamoto Japan sim. Crossing fingers, I searched, and sure enough the sim and the entire freebie store was still there. Thus was born the onnagata.

This is such a simple look, the credits will be almost none at all. Just the makeup, the kimono, and the hair and eyes. The makeup comes with a perfect Geisha-style hairbase, and even has the lovely unpainted neck that is considered so erotic by those who frequent the Kyoto teahouses.

Not so much a giggling maiko, this one ;-)
