Two wonderfully costumed Geisha dancers graced the Loop with their presence today. Now, when Lupe first spotted the dancers she was not certain they were more than just your average Loop "tourists", out shopping.
Lupe had just seen two young ladies that could have been in costume, wearing cat ears and frilly aprons a la Alice In Wonderland, but they were just shopping.
However, the dancers were here on official business-- a performance at Star Clipper Comics.
Star Clipper's twitter update at noon today read:
Geisha and Maiko from Three Rivers Okiya are coming today to add a touch of gentility to Star Clipper!
Lupe does wish she had a camera, as the girls did a lot to brighten up a rainy Saturday afternoon in the Loop!
See you in the Loop!!!
