Hello sweeties..!! I hope you are good, today I reviewing this amazing Storenvy shop called Creepy Kitty, based in California the lovely and sweet owner Maria has a variety of handmade creations that are inspired by Japanese fashions like fairy kei, decora, lolita and overall cute looks! Everything I have seen in her shop are truly beautiful and well made~Maria sent a package to review for you all ^_^ before I start

Everything came in this protected envelope lined with bubble wrap, It was sent through first class so I received it very quickly! The paper and tape she used for the addresses were SO cute~
 I was sent a headband and a pink mesh bag of goodies as well
First item I opened up was this two way star clip, lavender stars attached to a pearl chain and beautiful handmade details to it..the candy and rainbow pieces attached are perfect! I love that it can be worn as a hair clip or a brooch, as soon as I saw it I fell in love~I've wanted a clip like this for a long time n_n these run about $4-$7 I'm not quite sure on the exact price because I didn't find this specific one in the shop but the prices are extremely affordable and also well made in my opinion
Next was this super kawaii pastel headband that has been recently added to her shop so these are limited right now, completely made by hand, all the little details she added on it are divine! Very sturdy and looks cute from any angle, since this was custom I'm not sure on the pricing but you can always send a message her way
KORILAKKUMA ♥ I'm a huge fan of these bears and own quite a bit of rilakkuma items so when I saw this I was beyond ecstatic, it is super shiny and captures a lot of light ~a pretty holographic shine which is beautiful! The ring is adjustable too which is a plus so it can fit all sizes
Rilakkuma kawaii choker, chiffon with a pretty white star pattern. Bows, stars and flower details added on were a perfect touch to them..the pendants in all of her jewelry as so well made! This one has green glitter all inside with heart details along with stickers, these run about $7-$10 each depending on the item you choose
I wore my headband with the choker and ring I was sent as well, everything goes together perfectly! I matched it with my vintage lace top that I got from a thrift gives the sweet magical look that I'm going for~

Loving all of these items~I could wear them all day long! Also this wig is from SpreePicky, if you use the code PastelUsagi to get 10% off of a $30 purchase or more ^W^
The choker and ring and very comfortable and they are both adjustable so they can fit most sizes, they add a lovely touch to my pastel outfit
I wanted to wear light, sweet makeup so I went with mint and lavender, a black liner and white in the inner corners of my eyes.
Wearing the 2 way star clip is sturdy, you have the option of wearing it on your clothing or as a hair accessory. I thoroughly enjoyed putting these together with my look.

Neko Nonsense Review❤Mori Kei & Dark Mori Kei Post[forrest girl]

Gothic graphics
Hello Cuties..!!! I hope you all have been doing well n_n Today I'm going to be reviewing a lovely pair of handmade antlers from Neko Nonsense as well as a post about Mori Kei and Dark Mori..I'm going to start with the antlers, this lovely etsy shop is based in San Antonio, Texas and the owner Jocelyn is super sweet and a doll to talk to.
The antlers came in this pretty pink package, it took a few days for me to receive the items to Alabama from Texas. I was informed when the package was sent as well which is always nice~
Little cute my melody note with the antlers bubble wrapped and taped, the package was lined with bubble wrap too..very secure!
I was sent the black ones..they are perfect!! Handmade out of polymer clay so each one is unique in its own way, attached to alligator clips as well. These are $10 for the pair and if you have any special requests she would be happy to help you out! They are extremely well made and don't slip when I wear them all day long. 

I'm going to do things a bit differently and post my ratings before the photos to talk to you about Dark Mori and Mori Kei

Workmanship: ❤❤❤❤❤/❤❤❤❤❤     
The antlers were made beautifully and I have bumped them a few times while wearing them..they still stayed in place and don't feel heavy at all
Postage/Shipping: ❤❤
It only took a few days for me to receive my items from Texas which is quite close to me since I live in Alabama, I had no complications

Communication: ❤❤❤❤❤/❤❤❤❤❤
Jocelyn has been a sweet friend and responds quickly, if you have any special requests feel free to send a message her way
Overall: ❤❤❤

These two photos above are not my photos, here is a example of more natural Mori Kei using light neutral colors like creams and pastel colors. You want to stay away from the bright sweet side..all of these cuties wore it perfectly!! If you know where these photos are from please let me know so I can add proper credit..keep reading below for more details★
I am wearing Dark Mori with my antlers for a presentation at school, I had to pick a fashion that inspires me and this fashion speaks to me on many levels~I enjoy wearing it day to day as well. A lot of people ask what it means, it is Japanese for forest, mori plus kei (style) = forest style or forest girl. Often day dreamers, love fairy tales, reading, just being laid back and down to earth. Mori Kei uses more light earthy/neutral tones as to Dark Mori you would wear darker colors like emerald, dark red, grey, browns and black..associated with earth elements like sand, stones, bones.
In choosing clothing layering is key..the more layers the better..loose fitting, tatty, cozy clothes. Making it look as if you've been living in the forest and found your items there with a witchy/dark aesthetic to it. You can wear anything from knitted items, handmade, lace, velvet and silk fabrics as well. When mix and matching them together you want to be careful and make sure they work properly when you combine them all. All white outfits would be beautiful if you wanted more of a ghostly look~
 Dresses, long skirts and blouses are usually worn..I matched a very long/flowing vintage skirt I got from the thrift store. If you search hard enough and you don't mind thrifting those are really good places to start, I have found lots of goodies from vintage thrift stores and love them. I am also wearing leggings and folded socks as well but you can't see unless if I start to walk around and my skirt sways, I have two tops on with lots of layering and loose open cardigan. Heels, clogs, boots, and pointed shoes work with these outfits as well..I'm not accessorizing with a bag but usually large shoulder bags are added, faux fur is very popular.

  Head pieces are lovely touches as well whether its a hat or shawl over your, leaves, antlers or feathers can make a wonderful addition in head pieces. I wore a large vintage scarf and used part of it as a shawl as well paired with my antlers of course. Ponchos and hoods are perfect too..Fur pieces work as well, items with a steampunk feel looks good in my opinion when it comes to this fashion.
Close look of my outfit, my top cuts in at the waist and all of the layers went together so well. If you would like a sexier feel to it corsets are great to add a more flirtatious side to it. My hair is very faded and blonde at the moment here which natural colors work very well with this. Short bobs are adorable too and light free falling curls, braids, dreadlocks are lovely hair style choices~I am wearing my silver black stone necklace adding a earthy accent to it.
Silver over gold is best in my opinion when picking out jewelry..I am wearing a couple of rings including my engagement ring n_n ❤ the snake ring is beautiful and adds a nature element to it~also my woven tattoo choker. I relate to nature more than most things and see so much beauty/mystery to it. Fantasy and myths play a big part in it for me, I love feeling like an enchanting forest girl strolling through the woods with the creatures surrounding me.
When it comes to makeup you don't want to over do it. Complexion is usually lighter with round, rosy cheeks as if you have been playing outside in the cold hehee!! More natural makeup is the way to go with a glowing touch to it. Tribal makeup designs though is very popular with it too, if you want a more smokey eye look of course you could always add your own flare to it. I wore white and beige with a light liner on my top lid and a little mascara as well as some blush on my cheeks and a bit under my eyes too, a touch of clear gloss to finish it off.
I hope you all enjoyed my post on this and thanks for reading it all, I know this one was a bit lengthy but I tried to make it as short as possible..!! If you have any questions or comments feel free to ask away~have a wonderful day/night. Also you can check out my other links above!! Thank you to my lovely friend Blaine as well for taking these photos for me❤
