スタイル Mori Girl/Dolly Kei

One of my favorite styles is a mix between mori girl and dolly kei!

 

For those of you that don’t know what mori girl is,

“Mori girl is a Japanese street fashion that looks woodsy and natural. A mori girl dresses in earthy colors and loose dresses and layers. She enjoys wearing vintage and handmade pieces that make her look like she lives in a forest, hence the name– “mori” means “forest” in Japanese.”

“Some typical characteristics of mori girl fashion are:
~ loose clothes
~ vintage or handmade items
~ natural and earthy colors
~ everything soft and comfortable
~ layering
~ looking like part of the forest
~ lots of knit-wear, crochet, and fur”

For those of you that don’t know what dolly kei is,

“Dolly kei, also known as “dolly style” or “antique doll” fashion, is a Japanese style that looks slightly creepy and antique. Wearers of the fashion choose vintage clothes and layer them to achieve this striking look.

A few common elements of dolly kei are:
~ paisley
~ tapestry
~ embroidery
~ tights, boots, and platform sandals
~ layering
~ mixing patterns and colors
~ ethnic-looking pieces
~ vintage clothing
~ fur accessories
~ tassels and shawls with fringe
~ florals
~ morbidity and mysticism
~ defined waist”

きれい Such a pretty cosplay

Her name is Alodia Gosiengfiao. She’s from the Philippines and is a cosplayer model and artist. She is a widely know cosplayer that has cosplayed over 40 animes, movies and video games! She started to become popular in 2003 when she was 15 cosplaying Rikku gun mage from FFX-2. She won an event at a convention and has since been appearing at conventions worldwide as a participant, performer, judge or as a guest. From there many companies in the Philippines have hired her to endorse their products. Not only that but is featured in magazines and TV shows!

Plus she was ranked as #76 in 2010’s Philippine’s FMN 100 Sexiest Women poll! (info from wikipedia)

Now how can I do this? I want to be in magazines and host things! Plus who wouldn’t want to be in costume all the time!

コキュCocue my favorite store in Japan!

Check out their web site! It’s fairly easy to navigate even if you don’t speak Japanese. www.world.co.jp/cocue/

The first time I was in Tachikawa shopping I noticed this brightly colored store of clothes and what not, but what really got my attention was the shoes. As I took a closer look I found shoe clips and shoe bands. Shoe bands became one of my favorite things! This store is most popular for their shoe clips and bands.

Here is a preview of this seasons collection!

Hippie chic!

Cocue also has a great selection of unique hats and purses!

Awesome hat that would pair nicely with the dress above!

Sun-brella! or just an umbrella.

One thing that is popular in Japan is having an umbrella to protect your skin from the sun! Most people in Japan value the soft white skin tone. Plus why not have it match your wardrobe!

Cute clip on bow you can attach to a purse or even your clothes.

The strap on these shoes is much easier to fasten then the kind you have to tread through the hole. All you do is clip/clasp it and your ready to go! Makes it much easier to take your shoes off when enter a home or dressing room in Japan. (that’s right, no shoes on in the dressing rooms)

Super かわいい lace up sandals!

These shoes come with a pair of shoe clips! Wear them with or without these pretty yellow flowers.

20120517-125547.jpg

Shoe clips. Wear them with any shoes you like to change the look of them!

Add shoe clips to any pair of plain shoes and voila! you have a new style shoe!

For my favorite… Shoe bands!

(I’m going to have to make a separate post for these eventually)

Slide them over a pair of pumps to keep your foot from falling out! Plus they look super cute!

And lastly here is a pair of shoe band’s I bought from Cocue about 3 years ago!
