I started this blog with my partner Dalfe (a very lovely person and talented cosplayer, who you can find here, here and here), in order to share our adventures, post personal photography and just journal away. It’s been sitting here untouched for a while, but today I decided it’s time to post something!
So hi! Most of my time online is spent on tumblr, you can find my fashion and photography inspiration blogs here and here, feel free to follow, send asks, do whatever.
So, as of today, we’ll start this blog out as a personal fashion and photography blog. I’ve spent the past three years being very interested in different Japanese fashion styles, especially ones that weren’t particularly well known here in Australia. I have always had a lot of friends interested in Lolita styles of fashion, and admired the way they wear it in their day to day life, I particularly love the detail in the prints used. From there, I started to become interested in decora, then gyaru, and for a long time thought gyaru was the fashion for me. And then this year, Dalfe introduced me to the magical, whimsical, enchanting mori kei! For those not familiar with it, mori kei, or mori girl, is inspired by nature and the forest (mori = forest). It entails a lot of layers, lace, lots of pretty fabrics, and carries over into a lifestyle for a lot of us mori girls. The stereotypical mori girl (I’m not saying this applies to every single one of us, of course it doesn’t) is perhaps quite introverted, enjoys simple pleasures like tea and walks in the woods, and hobbies like photography, writing, or perhaps sewing and creating her own clothing. One of my favourite things about mori kei is the emphasis on being natural! I have spent a lot of my life straightening out my insane, uncontrollable curly hair, but mori kei has really taught me to embrace it. Makeup is generally light and comfortable, and in comparison to gyaru, that has been a huge (and welcome) change as well. The mori community is still quite small, and as such is welcoming, friendly and very accepting. It’s really lovely.
I guess I would love for this blog to become a recognised reference for newcomers to mori, for existing mori kids, and just for anyone interested in the fashion or lifestyle.
So expect ootd posts, wardrobe sharing, online shopping hauls, and any adventures into the lovely wilderness. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it and we’ll gain a few friends and followers along the way!
Thanks for reading, this has been Misun <3
