O-mikuji or Sacred Lots 1910s, Japan.  O-mikuji (おみくじ) is a form of divination that relies on random chance to predict the answer to a question. Traditionally, a small box with a slot in one end is shaken until a bamboo stick falls out. The stick has a number that corresponds to a slip of paper on which the fortune is revealed.  Text and image via Blue Ruin 1 on Flickr

Traditional Japanese Kimono (female). The style of this particular Kimono gives quite a regal feel which is something I should consider when looking at hierarchy of the characters within my animation. In addition, the colours are quite interesting as there is a large contrast between light and dark, which is also something I should think about.
