Wiki riff: Kibitsu Shrine (吉備津神社), is a Shinto shrine in Okayama, Okayama Prefecture, Japan. The Honden-Haiden is a National Treasure and the sole exemplar of the kibitsu-zukuri style of architecture, although the Soshidō of Hokekyō-ji is now believed to have been modeled thereon
I’m a sucker for fun photos with costumes. As such, while presenting at Social Media Camp in Victoria in 2016, I availed myself of the promotional photo booth and dug into the provided tickle trunk, plus added a few items I had on hand, to create this series of photos to craft characters and story.
Presented individually, then as they appeared in strips for the record (in case you want to print and trade with your friends).
