Could you pleeeeease make rebloggable versions of your answers with pictures? That would be so helpful! Thanks!
It's there any possible way to mix mori and steampunk? Somehow this styles seem like opposites, but yet a very uncommon and interesting blend
I have never seen this done personally and I don’t know a lot about steampunk… ^^;;;
I imagine if you wanted to do it, you could focus on using leather in your outfit since it’s a material that’s OK in both styles. Also maybe making a cute flower crown that included some flowers made from brass or something? I guess if someone said to me - imagine mori-steampunk, I would think of a clockwork forest haha. Though the ideas behind each of the styles seem somewhat in contrast, I think the aesthetics could work together if you were careful ^^;;;
I imagine something like this would go well in such an outfit:
Do you have any suggestions for more elegant mori clothing? Not necessarily formal wear, but something just a little dressed up that can still be worn casually. I know it is a strange question.... I love your blog!
Hmm Pink House has some things like that for example:
You can also find some longer dresses that are suitable for mori-kei on places like modcloth:
or Ruis Collection on taobao has some great mori-gyaru style colthing that is quite elegant.
Also coconuts on taobao does nice mori-gyaru stuff too
I hope this is what you were looking for ^^;; xo
Two questions, one suggestion: 1) I apologize in advance if this was already asked. Are there any examples of what to wear with long skirts? 2) What is your opinion on Wonder Rocket? 3) I think tagging posts with 'dresses'/'short skirts'/'sweaters'/etc would be helpful
#3 first - I have actually been meaning to go through the blog and do some mass-tagging of posts so everything is more organized, I just have to find the time ^^;;;
#2 - I love wonder rocket! I think they are great and the quality is reasonable :)
#1 - You can wear almost anything with a long skirt. Here are some examples:
Hello! I'm a BJD collector and I want to create a character who dress with mori style. I read that "mori gyaru" existed, and I want to know if you can share a few photos to know how it looks and if you can tell me in what consists this style >_< Thank you!

I'm trying to start a mori wardrobe, what do you think would be a good starting point? (I.E, x shirts, x skirts/bottoms, x outerwear...) Sorry if this is a stupid question!
I would say decide on the colour palette you want first (say you want all creams and beige or you like green a lot etc.) Once you’ve chosen your focus colour, I would work on getting the basic components of a couple of outfits and choose things that can be layered, mixed and matched and used in multiple ways.
Ideally, I think you should aim to start with:
3 x dresses, 2 x skirts, 3 x blouses, 2 x t-shirts or tops, at least 2 x outwear + a coat if where you live is cold, 2 x shoes and 1 x bag. You should also try to get a lot of different socks and leg-wear plus an assortment of accessories :) Also, if you want to go for a more boy-ish look, you can swap out the skirts and dresses for more tops, a pair of shorts and some pants.
Are short skirts or dresses ok in mori girls? Except for mori gyaru, it seems that mori girls only wear long skirts or mid-length dresses!
Traditionally, mori-girl skirts are knee-length or longer. Because the aesthetic relies heavily on layering and creating a loose silhouette it’s hard to achieve without a longer skirt. Mori-girl is also a very modest style, so showing a lot of skin or leg doesn’t really fit in with it. That said, it can be done if you do it carefully.
Here’s some examples of a mori-kei look with a short skirt (you will not find photos of mori girls in short skirts without some kind of stockings or pants underneath though).

For the girl that wants to dye her hair, I've seen ombré or deep, dark reddish maroon done very beautifully on mori girls.
Oops! ><;; Sorry for not being specific! (Same anon as previously, by the way!) I was thinking something unnatural! Is my best bet going for a pastel hair colour?
I think yes, something pastel or subdue. There are lots of great examples on Shima Hair
