For DrakoDarko, who requested "Tetsuo performing as onnagata". Onnagata are male actors who play women roles in Japanese kabuki theatre. Wisteria Maiden (Fuji Musume) is a kabuki dance, first staged in 1826. It tells the story of the spirit of the wisteria as young girl in beatiful furisode.

It was really awesome to draw this, I've been wanting to try mimicking old ukiyo-e style for a long time, and this was the perfect opportunity!
