Thank you for the info! I actually use the “shop girl” tag to identify both people who work in the shops as well as the owners, to simplify things. So “shop girl” implies anyone who is involved with the brand. ♡
spookyboodollqueen said: I've been wanting to coordinate my own style of fairy-kei which would he something darker....I want it to be lessserious than other gothic styles and focus on cartoon villains.. with a color scene of black with pastel mixed in...it just to.d a way to mix dark and cute... I could call it spooky-kei or creepy-kei.... I'm ranting to you case you would have any ideas or may have seen something like this etc
I think that’s a great outfit idea, I love villians a lot myself. <3 I say dress however you want, you don’t need a label to be happy. ^^ Careful making new labels, though, as it tends to confuse people.
As for existing labels… Oshare-kei could be similar to what you’re thinking, because it involves a lot of dark colors mixed in with bright colors with a humorous aire. Or Pop-kei if you would be using a lot of vintage 80s/90s villians, but a heavy concentration of black would pull it away from Pop-kei.

I’m sorry to hear that! ;_; I don’t notice any problem on this end, and I use Google Chrome. Anyone else having this issue?

Thank you so much for running a quality blog! I'm sure you hear that a lot, but you know :D
That’s so sweet of you, and so wonderful to hear! All the pastel fluff always makes me smile too, I’m glad I’m not the only one! <3

slugbabies said: Good online FairyKei shops that are cheap? :P
That’s a difficult one, since so many Japanese brands are pricey. If you’re looking for accessories, Etsy is your best choice, since a lot of people make handmade accessories similar to what the main stores carry but charge less. You can also find sellers local to your country, which cuts down on shipping costs. Try searching “fairykei” or “fairy kei” and you’ll get a lot of hits.
For accessories and jewelry, Cute Can Kill is also a wonderful option, with adorable limited things and great customer service from a sweet gal.
Bodyline is very affordable, and where a lot of people buy their petticoats and shoes, but they stopped their DHL one price for everything shipping, so shipping is now a bit more costly.
Refuse to be Usual on Ebay carries a variety of lolita / fairy kei inspired outfits, and a lot of them are really cute. They’re not super cheap, but still generally less than the main Japanese brands.
One of the best ways to pickup cheaper FairyKei items online though is to become members of communities on places like livejournal, and watch for selling posts. People tend to be very fair with their second time around pricing.
lolitalols said: Do you know where Moko (http://6strawberry9.jugem.jp/) gets her fairy kei from? I've been looking around and haven't found the brands (besides AP and 6% Doki Doki and Swimmer -- those I know she wear for sure) she wear. I like the simplicity of it. :)
From what I understand, she does make her own stuff, and shops at crafter events buying other people’s homemade goods. I imagine some things are vintage finds as well.
If anyone has more specific information for lolitalols, please let us know! <3

I’m not 100% sure, it could be Angelic Pretty, but there was also an independent seller making similar pieces. Can anybody help her out?

subtledetails said: Do you know where to find polkadot tights? Why is it impossible for me? ; n;
One of the cheapest options I’ve found is these opaque pantyhose you can get on ebay. They’re white/cream polka dots, which you can wear by themselves or layer them over colored tights like the ones you can find at We Love Colors.The polka dots stand out really well, and the color underneath will be just slightly muted, giving it a more pastel look.
Otherwise just stop in at any store in your area, places like Target, Fred Meyer, Grocery Outlet, even Goodwill. You will be surprised the things you can find in discount sections, but they often carry limited supplies so checking back often you may get lucky!

I’m so glad this blog made you happy! <3 That’s the best thing anyone can say, and my favorite thing about colorful pastel fashions. =)
apandathing said: What's the difference between Fairykei and Decora?
The main difference is that Fairykei stays with pastel colors, while Decora tends to be brighter vibrant colors.
Fairykei has a very “little girl playing fairy princess” feel, while Decora is very much about piling as many things on you as physically possible. For Fairykei, the accessories and clothes are often based on the 80’s and 90’s, especially cartoons such as Rainbow Brite, My Little Pony, and Care Bears. Lots of bows, ruffles, and sparkley things!
Miseducated’s Fairykei Guide has some good reference links to learn more. I hope that helps!
Dedicated to all Fairykei, Popkei, Decololita and like-minded fashion. You will find pastel colors, adorable clothing, fairy princesses, and a love of all things that make you go “Awwww~!”
