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.”

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.

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!

Though this site isn’t strictly Japanese fashion it has a wide rage of companies from Eastern Asia. This site has it all from clothes and accessories to makeup and cosmetics. I do own a couple of the below items and love them! Find what fits your style!

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