30 Questions Mori Challenge, Revisited

30 Questions Mori Challenge, Revisited | Hedgefairy

It’s been over five years since I first read about this challenge (originally meant for 30 days straight. I still want to keep my weekly features, so I’m just doing these whenever). It came back into my mind when Kathryn Elaine re-posted the questions to re-do the challenge herself, and I thought, hey, what a neat idea. A lot of things have changed since 2011 – I wouldn’t necessarily say that I or my tastes have matured, but they have changed for sure. I moved to a different city, got a new job and did and learned a whole lot of new things. I also already wrote about falling back in love with the style lately. So I think I’ve got ample reason to revisit these questions:

  1. Naturally, our first question is how did you get into Mori Kei?
  2. Who is/are your Mori idols? Who inspires your fashion?
  3. Have you ever lived in a rural environment? If you have, do you think it influenced your Mori-ness? If not, do you think living in a suburban or urban environment influenced your style any?
  4. Name 5 things you love about Mori.
  5. Name 5 things you dislike about Mori.
  6. What sort of things, outside of fashion, do you consider to be a part of a Mori lifestyle?
  7. Are you also into Lolita? I find a lot of Mori Girls do Lolita as well! Whether you are or aren’t a Lolita, why do you think this is?
  8. What is your favorite type of plant life? Whether it be tree, bush, flower, fruit or vegetable, why is it so special to you?
  9. List 10 words that remind you of Mori or inspire your Mori life.
  10. What are your favorite books? Do you think they are Mori or not?
  11. Name 5 of your favorite Mori style songs or musicians, even if they’re not explicitly “Mori”.
  12. Name 5 Mori style hobbies!
  13. What films, if any, inspire your Mori look and life?
  14. Do you like to coordinate the colors in your outfits to match the seasons? What colors do you think are most appropriate for each season, and why, if you’d like to explain?
  15. Post a photo of your favorite personal Mori coordinate.
  16. Post at least 5 photos that inspire you. They don’t necessarily need to be fashion!
  17. What’s your favorite season and why?
  18. Are you inspired by any foreign cultures other than Japan? What about them inspires you?
  19. Are you inspired by your own culture? If so, how do you incorporate it?
  20. How do you feel about the fairly prevalent use of fur in Mori Kei?
  21. Where do you get most of your Mori clothes?
  22. What trends do you see taking the mori girl community by storm soon?
  23. Is your hair long or short? What’s your favorite hairstyle?
  24. Give us a mori girl inspired vignette! (a short, impressionistic scene that focuses on one moment or gives a particular insight into a character, idea, or setting) Don’t fret too hard over it, we’re not all writers by trade, haha.
  25. What’s your favorite animal and why?
  26. When you’re out in nature, where do you often find yourself? (in the woods, a lake, river, etc. what’s your favorite spot? describe it for us!)
  27. What’s your favorite fairy tale or myth?
  28. Has getting into mori girl changed your perspective on life or how you live at all? how so?
  29. What other fashions are you interested in if any?
  30. Describe your ideal ‘mori day.’

I’ll try to keep the list updated with links to the respective post. If you’re curious about the last time I answered all (or most) of these questions, take a look here. And if you happen to take on this challenge yourself please leave me a comment, I’d love to read your answers!
