I made this outfit (coat and vest) mostly from lace and tweed/wool scrapes from different coats and fabrics I picked up at goodwill and other thrift shops. The mask was made from plaster gauze and sculpey, I didn’t make the pants, they’re from rugby.com
I decide to make this not only for the labyrinth themed masquerade at my school but a Emilie Autumn concert I attended.

Hello my one and only, absolute favorite mori girl blog. I have a question to ask of you, Pie. How on earth can I "morify" my school uniform? This might have been asked before, but I am in quite a tough spot. You see, for our uniforms are anything but mori. White polo t-shirts and cream-colored tight pants. What could I do? I'm thinking trying mori-ish hairstyles, but I'm terrible at doing my hair T_T. Any suggestions? Please I could use as many as possible. Thank you, love you xx
Well, I’m not Pie but hopefully my answer will suffice as well. :’-)
You might not be able to stitch on lace or anything like that, but there’s lots of ways to incorporate mori aspects into your uniform! Try rolling up your pants and wearing socks in a floral or nordic print. Catherine Cole Studio on Etsy has some great socks. If you don’t have designated shoes to wear, lace up ankle boots or clogs would help boost the mori aesthetic.
Accessories would really be handy in your situation. Look for big necklaces/pins to wear that really scream mori, Oldtime Garden and Pink Garnet on Taobao both carry some really nice accessories.
As for hair, I’m not sure how long your hair is but you could do a simple side braid or, to save time and fuss, you could get one of those braid headbands to wear. A simple bun, worn either low or high, with a pretty accessory would work great, too!
Finally, make sure that whatever you choose to wear with your uniform adheres to your school’s dress code! Mori style is wonderful but it can be distracting to other students. There is a reason why you’re made to wear a uniform.
Hope this helped! -Leslie
