>no colorful fashion thread that isn't sweet lolita
>this needs to be rectified
You're doing God's work, anon. I used to be into fairy kei myself, although it was short lived.
Although I used to have a friend a while back that would tell me that just because someone dresses up in a bunch of pastels doesn't make them fairy kei, and a lot of what you'd find on Google was just "pastel decora". I still wonder if that's true, and what "real" fairy kei is like.
Aww thanks anon. I really want to get into fairy kei or decora but I've been focused on assembling my sweet lolita wardrobe. Both fashions feel so fun to me though!
I'm still not entirely sure what fairy kei is, I often mix up cult fairy kei and regular fairy kei. I think regular fairy is really similar to like a pastel decora, while cult is like flow-y pegnoirs and more nature-y pastel look? I have really no clue though. Fashions outside of lolita have much more lax rules that its hard to determine what falls into what category.
Real fairy kei is lighter somehow, with less clutter. It used to prefer either dyed or natural hair to wigs and use some cute 80's cartoon motifs (popples, care bears etc). Cute tutus were a thing in the beginning as well.
Correct me if I'm wrong but that's what it started as and suddenly in came millions of tutus, wigs, sceptres/wands, shittons of jewelry and hairclips and it did start to look more like pastel decora.
But let's see anon >>8842110
Pic related is CPK and it doesn't need peignoirs to be it. It usually uses off whites, natural tones and pastels ( dusty pink being the most usual ) with red accents. Another anon can prolly open up where this style started and where the red crosses and accessories came from. Basically the look is somewhat like a super layered antique porcelain doll that just got out of bed. Add doll and stuffed toy motifs, fake fur in right colours, knits, braids, layers in materials and the right makeup and you get close.
I'll call this pic I posted "old school fairy kei" for the sake of trying to show the difference in what people have posted here.
See how much lighter and effortles this is? It's also pretty casual and not as costume-y as what western fairy kei coords tend to be now days.
Ah yes thank you ! You did a much better job of explaining it. Thats the type of aesthetic I mean when I say nature-y. More dusty muted colors.
(Borderline pop kei but still)
More, but see how they're less cluttered?
Even this is old school fairy kei.
Ah thanks anon, see I confuse the name even...
some sweet lolita coords can be cute fairy kei coords
PEA liked imitating the lolita silhuotte with their dresses (though obviously shorter)
Most lolita skirts/dresses work for fairy kei are the more casual cuts with less poof
Dear lord thart hair. I know not many of you have seen this personally but azn hair is particularly dense and oily. You have to literally start melting the hair with bleach to get it that blonde. And then add more cheap color on top.... any hair on that head is fried and ruined and that's all I can see on her
thank you gulls so much for this thread and the discussion within!! i'm wanting to get into fairy kei and it's been good being able to see what is/isn't fairy kei. i definitely like the simpler, less decora-ish coords anyways
Pro tip: if you're looking for fairy kei on tumblr, stop while your ahead. You're gonna end up with monstrosities like as shown
Just going to dump some of the fairy kei/jfashion pics I have in my folder.
Why her face looks like scared
Also, I think Fairy Kei Tips on Tumblr is usefull, is good to see the rules http://fairy-tips.tumblr.com/faq
you mean the ones somebody posted a group picture of in one of the last threads? if yes I do agree. They're not super bad but most of them looked like they just threw whatever tumblr related gimmick they found together.
anyway contributing more pictures.
also is the comm really that dead now? feels like it's all over the place. I kinda miss the old days and the old idols. now it all looks the same baka
It honestly depends. To get my hair that color, I was impatient and rushed three bleach jobs in the span of one week and basically made my hair super dry. I know better now. The second time I bleached I did it over the span of a month (again, a bit rushed because I did three instead of two), shampooed and conditioned for about a month, and after that dip-dyed.
Unless you count wing details on backpacks, this is pretty much the only picture I can find that's similar. Still not costume-tier cheap halloween wings, but maybe that anon has some pictures.
Every time she pops up, all I can think of is Gerard Depardieu.
Gonna photo dump, I really hope this thread doesn't die off.
What are some good facebook groups that aren't cringe thread material? I like to discuss the fashion with some down to earth people and not "everyone is special and loving towards one an other. And if you don't agree with our love, than we will bully you out".
I'd say it's the makeup. CPK's color palette is very similar to larme lacking the black: pale whites, pinks and bright red as a contrast. The makeup here with the harsh pink blush and stark red lipstick is much more CPK than mori's natural light makeup.
Would also like to know if pop kei is still a thing
Listen Flavor still exists so why shouldn't it?
