5 things I like about Fairy Kei:
~ The colour palette - i love pastel colours and the ability to wear an outfit with loads of pastels in without it clashing is great!
~ The layers - layers petticoats on top of each other looks so cute!
~ The characters - all the 80s characters are things i loved when i was a kid so it's really fun to find a My Little Pony tshirt or something and make it kinda cool! XD
~ The girlyness - fairy kei makes me feel cute and girly again
~ The freedom - you can basically do anything with fairy kei, dress how you want as long as you stick to the colour palette and themes. I also love the creativity of it and the DIY aspect. i love how Spank!'s stuff all looks handmade (because it is!)
5 Things I Dislike:
~ Difficult to find - it's sooooo hard to find things to add to my fairy kei wardrobe!! Original 80s stuff is impossible to find and when i go shopping to find something particular there is never anything right. I think it's part of the DIY part too that it's hard to buy something with the intention of altering it. And a lot of things i see that i like i just go "well i can just make that myself" then never do. lol
~ The Layers - yeah i know i said i liked them but i also hate them. putting on too many layers just makes me look fat and frumpy and with the size of my chest, it's hard to wear more than like 2 layers.
~ The connections to Lolita - ok ok so i dont exactly dislike it but when i find a cute fairy kei post but it's the only one on a lolita themed blog it gets on my nerves. I love reading lolita blogs but i wanna see more fairy kei blog posts people! XD
~ The price - even when you do find a fairy kei gem, it's all suuuuper expensive. I'm a student and very poor so this is a kick in the balls (so to speak).
that's all i can think of really. XD
