If your little girl wants a classic costume not based on a video game or TV, get her a Geisha Girl Child Costume. The stunning red kimono is trimmed in gold stitching and accented with flowers and other designs. It also features a gold belt and is tied closed with a golden rope. Translated into literal English, the word geisha means artist or performing artist. These women are traditional Japanese entertainers who act as hostesses and perform classic music and dance. Very popular from the 1800s onward, geishas began to decline during the World War II era when women began working in factories. There was a resurgence in the 1960s and today, women in the geisha society are some of the most successful businesswomen in Japan. While traditionally geishas began training as early as four years old, in the 21rst century, girls don't begin training until they are teens.
