Kawaii Creator’s Club #2: MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON Introduces Kawaii Fashion Creator Skittydoll

20.May.2020 | FASHION / FEATURES

MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON is launching a new series which we are calling the Kawaii Creator’s Club. Each episode, we’ll be introducing to you, the readers, to Kawaii Fashion Creators from around the world who are interested in kawaii fashion from Harajuku.

 

You’ll get to know each of these creators―who all live in different countries around the world―as you learn how they came to know about kawaii fashion, where they buy their clothes and accessories, who their fashion inspirations are, and more, in the form of an interview.

For entry number #2, we are joined by Skittydoll from Belgium! She studied Japanese at university for one year and has also been to Japan. We asked her about her daily life and her experiences with kawaii fashion.

 

1.What is your nickname (or name)?
I go by the nickname ‘Skittydoll’ online.

 

2. Which country do you live in?
I live in Belgium.

 

3. What made you interested in kawaii fashion?
I started watching anime and reading manga when I was about 11, and one of the series I loved was ‘Rozen Maiden’. Many of the characters wear lolita fashion, and while browsing the internet I found out that this was a real fashion style that people wore! I was completely in love with this rococo and victorian inspired fashion, and spent hours upon hours staring at dresses online. Unfortunately lolita fashion was much harder (and much more expensive!) to buy back then, so I was never able to buy anything.

4. At what age did you start experimenting with kawaii fashion?
Although I was fascinated by Japanese fashion from a pretty young age, I didn’t start wearing it until much later. I lost interest for a few years until I rediscovered it on Instagram when I was about 21! I realized, ‘Hey, I’m an adult now and I can actually buy things I want online!’ Plus it became much easier to order things from the internet.

 

5. Where do you buy your kawaii accessories and clothes from?
I buy mostly online nowadays, it’s much easier to find things I like, and it’s also the only place where I can buy from some of the smaller shops I love.
Some brands I have in my closet that I love a lot are: W♥C, Liz Lisa, Glitters for dinner, Swimmer (sadly they closed down), Angelic Pretty,.. I also have some pieces and accessories from smaller online shops like @nattycatpins, @sugarbone and @merbunnybaby. @multipalstore is great if you want to buy (second hand) Japanese brands like Liz Lisa. I also recently collaborated with @zenplus.jp which is a shopping service for Japanese goods, and I was really pleased with their service!

6. What do you like doing on your days off?
I’m usually gaming, reading or out thrifting on my days off. I’m always on the lookout for retro video games or cute second hand clothing at any yard sale. It’s like a treasure hunt!

 

7. What is your favourite food and why?
Definitely takoyaki! Although sushi is a close second. I first had takoyaki while walking to Meiji Jingu in Tokyo and it will always be a precious memory.

8. Do you have a favourite anime?
Lucky Star! It’s super nostalgic to me since I watched it when it first came out in 2007. Also, any Studio Ghibli movie is always a good time. Except for Grave of the Fireflies, that one is a sad time.

 

9. Do you have a favourite Japanese celebrity? If yes, who is it and why?
I really like the voice actor/singer Miyano Mamoru. He voiced a lot of my favourite anime characters (Light Yagami in Death Note, Rin Matsuoka in Free!, Tamaki Suoh in Ouran High School Host Club, etc.).

 

10. Do you have a favourite website about Japan or Japanese culture? If so, what is it?
When I was in university studying Japanese, we used this website erin.ne.jp for exercises, which I always thought was super cute. Oh, and Moshi Moshi Nippon of course!

11. Have you ever been to Japan? If not, where would you visit and what would you like to do the most?
Yes, once. But only to Tokyo. I really loved Asakusa, because of the great street food and beautiful temples. But my absolute favourite must be Sunshine City in Ikebukuro.

 

It has the biggest Pokémon Center (where I spent way too much yen) and a beautiful aquarium. I also spent a lot of time in Nakano Broadway hunting for second hand merch from older anime shows (and eating the famous 8 flavour ice cream!)

I would love to visit other places in Japan outside of Tokyo, especially Kyoto and Osaka.

 

12. Tell us about your dreams for the future.
I don’t really have any big dreams for the future. I guess I’m pretty boring, but I just hope to keep living comfortably with my boyfriend and maybe adopt a few more cats.

13. Finally, what does “kawaii” mean to you?
For me it really means nostalgia. I remember going to my first convention in 2007, when ‘kawaii’ was thrown around randomly by pretty much anyone who was into anime and manga, and we were all blissfully unaware of how cringy we would think that was a few years later. We were all just fans of the same things, having fun and celebrating Japanese pop culture together. A lot of things have changed since then, but I think that sense of community is still there. But we all have better wigs now.

    –What made you interested in kawaii fashion?

    I’ve always had a love for cute things, and have always been told I’ve been stuck daydreaming in my own world. So being able to wear kawaii fashion enables me to express my love for cuteness while being able to show people what it means to me.

    –At what age did you start experimenting with kawaii fashion?

    I’ve been dressing in kawaii fashion for as long as I can remember, but I think it’s just evolved in different ways now.

     

    –Where do you buy your kawaii accessories and clothes from?

    I really love thrift shopping! This is where I usually buy my clothes if it’s not given to me from online shops. Koenji and Shimokita are usually my go-to places in Tokyo. I also like re-making old clothes, and some of the things I wear I designed myself ♡ I just started my brand recently and have been doing pop-up shops around Tokyo from time to time, and will launch my website soon at www.omi-omi.com

     

    –Is there anyone who inspires your fashion style?

    Yes! I live here. My favourite places are Shimokitazawa, Koenji and Harajuku.

     

    –Tell us about your dreams for the future.
    I’m currently studying fashion right now, and once I graduate I plan to expand my brand around Tokyo. Maybe, in the near future, it would be such a dream to open a physical store in Harajuku.

     

    –Finally, what does “kawaii” mean to you?
    To me, I feel like “Kawaii” is more than just physical aesthetics. I think it’s also a feeling, culture, and a lifestyle. You don’t have to be a model, a certain gender, or popular to be “Kawaii”. For me, someone who is “Kawaii” radiates that happiness from within, just like the way we feel when we see our favorite cute toys. They aren’t afraid to be different, and are real with our love to express joy and cute things. There’s a difference between kawaii and childish and I think being able to express your inner child is a brave and rebellious thing to do in a world full of people who push that side of themselves away!

    You’ll get to know each of these creators―who all live in different countries around the world―as you learn how they came to know about kawaii fashion, where they buy their clothes and accessories, who their fashion inspirations are, and more, in the form of an interview.

    In our debut Episode #1, we welcome Laura from Germany! We asked this creative individual about everything from her personal interests to her experience with kawaii fashion.

     

    1.What is your nickname (or name)?
    My name is Laura and my nickname is Aru, which is basically half of my name backwards. :’)

     

    2. Which country do you live in?
    I live in Germany.

     

    3. What is your occupation?
    I am currently doing a voluntary work year at a school for disabled children and children with learning disabilities. Later, I want to enroll in university and probably major in something like engineering.

    4. What made you interested in kawaii fashion?
    When I was younger I always saw a lot of Harajuku fashion showing up on my Tumblr dashboard. I always appreciated the overall aesthetic and I just always wanted to become a part of this fashion style.

     

    5. At what age did you start experimenting with kawaii fashion?
    I first started out actually experimenting with the fashion when I was around 16. I went through a super hard time in my life and experimenting with this kind of fashion style kinda made things somewhat “better”.

    6. Where do you buy your kawaii accessories and clothes from?
    I get my clothing and accessories from many different places. Some items are just pastel colored items from local stores, but I get most of my stuff online. Sometimes I get my items from aliexpress or yesstyle, but I also own a lot of stuff from @youvimi, @unzzystore or @anibiustore !

     

    7. Is there anyone who inspires your fashion style?
    Yes, of course! There are so many inspirational kawaii creators out there,
    for example, @milkiiprincess , @himebunni and @anzujaamu. My style is also influenced by a lot of creators who would not be considered as “kawaii fashion creators”.

     

    8. What do you like doing on your days off?
    I have a very creative mind, so I actually spend most of my days off taking photos, drawing, painting, singing or writing poetry.
    Obviously I also have lazy days off where I love to watch Disney, anime or just play video games.

    9. How do you make these artistic features? Do you design and make them yourself?
    I mainly edit my instagram photos on photoshop and picsart; the photo with the grey wig is selfdesigned and the other one is edited with png-overlays from picsart!

     

    10. Do you have a favourite anime?
    My favourite anime is “Love Live”, which is an anime about a school idol group. It is super pure and also gives me major happy vibes. Whenever I rewatch it I am just super joyful!

    My fave character from this anime probably is Rin, because she actually kinda struggles in the beginning because she is not considered to be conventionally female. She has shorter hair than the others and is into sports. I really love that the anime included her.

     

    11 Do you have a favourite Japanese celebrity? If yes, who is it and why?
    My fave Japanese celebrity is Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. I absolutely love how her music videos seem so cute, but yet are kinda disturbing as well.

     

    12. What is your favourite Japanese word or phrase?
    It is probably “なつかしい – natsukashii”. It means being “reminiscent of good memories.”

     

    13. Have you ever been to Japan? If not, where would you visit and what would you like to do the most?
    Sadly I’ve never been to Japan, mainly because it is expensive and I have been busy with school and now work. I really hope I can go there one day tho. I would love to visit Kyoto to see temples and shrines. It generally looks beautiful. Of course I would also love to visit Tokyo and generally explore Japanese culture but also the Harajuku district. Also I would love to see the Studio Ghibli Museum and also Sanrio Puroland.

    14. Tell us about your dreams for the future.
    My dreams for the future are probably quite basic; I hope I get a college degree and get to work a great and fun job and also to stay with my significant other for a long time.
    I also really hope I will be able to travel to Japan in the future. Generally I rly want to improve fashion and make-up wise, so I can create new stuff!💕

     

    15. Finally, what does “kawaii” mean to you?
    Well I actually really take it by the literal translation. It means cute to me :’)

    molly

    pinkmilkteahime

    The Pinkmilkteahime has us wanting to dye our own hair blue because hers looks so cute. This co-ord may look simple at first with the single big pink t-shirt, but in fact the rest of her outfit and all of her accessories are uniformly blue, which makes her hair look even more beautiful. Even the blue and pink artwork in the background is in tune with her look.

     

    On her Instagram, she posts not only more beautiful looks, but pictures of her latest purchases too―from snacks to stationery. Follow her on Instagram @pinkmilkteahime

    Everything about the composition of this shot of Mimi Usagi can be described as cute. She has a cute character t-shirt on, and everything from her innerwear to her skirt is perfectly pink.

    Her pink cheek makeup adds a glimmering allure and helps flaunt her clearly innate kawaii. We want to try shooting a look like she has in this photo too! Be sure to follow her @usagimimichu

    What makes this outfit so incredibly good is the summery boater which Dannielle has coordinated perfectly with her blonde twin tails, creating a romantic kind of style.

    For more looks by Dannielle, check out her Instagram page where she is as cute as a princess.

    @petithamham

     

    ruthy

    Ruthy’s vivid pink hair is on point in this look and looks positively kawaii together with her pink beret♡

    Not only is her hat and hair pink but her top, accessories and makeup too! If you’re into pop fashion then you’ll definitely want to give Ruthy a follow on her colourful Instagram page. She has lots of makeup examples on her page, it’s a lot of fun just scrolling through it!

    @rooruthy

     

     

    Arashi

    Arashi is from Hong Kong and is currently studying abroad in Japan. She has gone for an all-black co-ord with her black mask, black outfit and black cap. This look is like the one she wore when she went to see The Weeknd perform live in Japan.

    Naomi’s violet hair looks really cute on her. She has gone for a sporty style with the sporty blouse and cap♡ Her shoes too remind you of keeping active, but when you break it down she has incorporated all pastel colours giving it that kawaii vibe.

    The Japanese text on her cap is stylish too.

  • Introducing the Kawaii Girls of the World | Kawaii Fashion Snap

    01.July.2019 | FASHION / FEATURES

    Kawaii Fashion Snap is a new feature we are starting here on MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON that puts the spotlight on girls around the world who have incorporated Japan’s culture of kawaii fashion into their wardrobe. From lolita to gothic lolita, yume-kawaii, colourful Harajuku-like pop styles and more, we will showcase and interview the girls of the world who are active with their kawaii endeavours on social media.

     

    Check out the co-ords of each of these Japan-loving fashionistas, and if you like their style be sure to follow them.

     

    Chirikku

    This is Chirikku. She coordinates pastel colours into her outfits. She likes the kind of styles featured in the Japanese fashion magazine LARME. The photos she took while at the Pokémon Café are nothing short of kawaii. She buys a lot of her clothes in Japan and online. Visit her Instagram page to see all the photos she has taken in many of Japan’s kawaii spots.

    Danielle

    Danielle’s outfit is girly from top to bottom: the umbrella, skirt and the laces of her shoes are both stylish and kawaii. The locale for this photoshoot in the garden was a perfect choice. She’s been a fan of visual-kei since high school which is where her interest in Lolita fashion sprouted. She posts many different looks over on her Instagram page.

    Angelic_amii_

    Angelic Amii’s pastel-coloured co-ord is also kawaii, combining an Esther Bunny t-shirt with jeans that have hearts on them. This shoot was taken in London’s Selfie Factory. The location and her outfit match splendidly. Amii gets her clothes when she visits Japan as well as at Lazy Oaf in London. She bought her jeans and belt are from lazy oaf. Make sure to check out her summertime kawaii on her Instagram page.

    Thyra

    For Thyra’s look, she is wearing a beret and big and beautiful ribbon earrings. The transparent ribbon together with her gorgeous blue top gives a cool and refreshing look. It’s very kawaii indeed. Thyra gets her kawaii fashion from online stores and second-hand clothing shops and even makes her own. The various items that appear on her Instagram, like cherries and unicorns, match beautifully with her style.
