ametat asked: Sorry for bothering you, but what is the name of the Tengu Monk's robes in book 1 Karasu? They're such a lovely shape and design!

Hi, thanks for sending me an ask! I’m not sure if you’re talking about his blue outfit or the monk’s robes shown in this image, so I’ll explain both.

The blue outfit is made up of a haori (羽織), which is an outer jacket with long sleeves. It has two mon (crests) which symbolize his temple, which are my own design. There is also a white inner layer. The pants are just pants which are tied up above the knees.

If you’re referring to the black and yellow robes, they’re based on actual Japanese monks’ clothing. They’re called kesa (袈裟). They’re not always black and yellow, but I liked the color scheme.

I hope this answered your question and please let me know if I left anything out!

This aquarium is famous for its whale shark… but it was sick and not on display when we visited. Lucky me! Please enjoy a sloth instead.

TWO SIGNED PAPERBACK COPIES AVAILABLE
I had previously wanted to keep two paperbacks on hand for my own personal use but I am moving to a new apartment! I’m trying to lighten my load so I decided to let these copies go. It would really help me move and you could grab a great (?) novel!
