Theme Thursday: Dark Mori Girl
Dark Mori girl is Mori girl’s more gothic sister. The baggy and layered silhouette and the nature and vintage motifs are still there, but the lace is tattered, the flowers and feathers are dark (or even dead and dry), the make up is more striking and primal,and the cute woodland fauna are replaced with skulls and skeletons.
As ShadyOaks on Tumblr puts it:
“If a mori girl is a sheep, the black forest girl is the wolf. She and the romantic goth have many interests in common, the metaphysical and the macabre are as fascinating and beautiful a facet of nature as life and light. Rather than letting the “memento mori” idea get them down in the dumps, they allow it to let them appreciate living while respecting death.”
I’ve been recently toying with the idea of dressing up Blair in dark mori girl fashion. There is a mystery in her eyes that I can’t quite put a finger on; I only know that she has a darker side to her. I’ve also been stalking the DoA marketplace for a Minifee Miyu SP head, which would be perfect for dark mori!Blair. Ahh, ideas, ideas. Now if only my income was directly proportionate to my wants!
