User talk:SuperGrouper

2012 May 5th Status Update + Questions + Links: I've been trying to fix some of my photo uploads to 1. properly use the permission:supergrouper template and 2. have my new flickr handle (snowfoxstock) but not my name (which I don't use for stock photos anymore- I'm trying to *only* use my name for my (in-progress) painting gallery, since Flickr is more for fun + making downloads for people.) Is there an easy way to do this? I've tried using the bara motif photo as a template, but I think I've actually messed up some of the descriptions (for instance, the links to the original photos.) >_> I think I may be bad at this. ;_; On the upside, though, the Kasane no Irome page is coming along very well- which is almost miraculous, considering how little I know about wiki code (the 500th time's a charm?) I've uploaded some new kimono motif stock photos to my flickr, and hopefully some will be of use? I didn't find any "hime" motif photos here,for instance- but perhaps I've overlooked them? I took and uploaded a Nadeshiko motif; unfortunately, the only thing I have with nadeshiko is a hanhaba obi, but hopefully that's good enough for now. I also tagged all photos that are/might be in use on the IGF wiki with IGFW, for easy locating. Oh! Also, if you need any specific photos of a specific item, please ask now, since I'm toying with the idea of selling a lot of my collection before I move. I'd need to get any stock photos for you before selling them.-SG

When you have some time, do you think you could photograph this haori from behind to use as an example on the yabane/yagasuri page? http://www.flickr.com/photos/grouperkun/5459929369/in/set-72157626300940068/ It's awesome and a nice example of showing yabane on a large scale. --IGWikiAdmin 17:49, 12 May 2011 (PDT)Naomi (Immortal Geisha)

I've uploaded the file here: [1] oun/sets/72157626707934746/]

If you need any photos from my collection, let me know.

Excellent! Thanks! Btw - I read on your page that you're good at doing junihitoe colours - go right ahead if you want. Don't know if this would be of any help seeing you have that awesome book of yours: http://www.kimonoasobi.com/?p=94 but if it is, go ahead and use it.--Immortal Geisha 19:35, 12 May 2011 (PDT)

I'm working on researching the junihitoe colors right now; I'll pretty much have to make my own graphics, since the people who have them are either Japanese (I don't speak the language) or SCA (who dislike their work being reused- and their lists are incomplete, anyway). It's just as well, since I'd like to research the colors myself and make stock images of each color scheme- that way, people in the future won't have this problem. ^^; I've been working on and off since last evening, and I've found a lot of useful sources: the main thing is to make sure that the colors are right, and then make a template to use... I'll at least start by adding the links list to the bottom, and once the color schemes graphics are all done, I'll add them at once (instead of doing it bit by bit.) The page is started here: [2]

Your list says you want to learn more about kosode, if you want you can come be a second author on the Kosode page with me (not that I'm possessive, please edit any and all pages you like :P). My main source was Four Centuries of Fashion- it was a really good primer, I recommend it. --Tzippurah 06:19, 13 September 2011 (PDT)

@Tzippurah: I'm researching kosode, but beyond copying from the books I've bought, I'm not really qualified to write on the subject yet. ^^; - SG
