Ubazuke (姥着け)

One way of wearing a costume. A kimono such as the kaori is worn in the Kinagashi style and the both sides of the collar are pulled together leaving little space. The Ubazuke style is often used for older female characters. Over this a Mizugoromo is often worn. The collars of kosode Noh costumes such as the kaori are wide, but with the Ubazuke, the collars are worn in the width of the regular kimono and folded onto one another. For older female characters, the ubazuke pattern is often used in the costume.
