˚✩‧ Own a mori magazine
I was able to complete this dream after I moved to Japan! Mori magazines are available cheap here from used book sellers online. I bought a ton and now own most of the most popular ones.
˚✩‧ Own Choco's Book
For the same reason, I was able to purchase Choco's book when I moved to Japan. It was so cool to hold one of the things that started it all in my hands. It's definitely one of my most treasured mori possessions.
˚✩‧ Knit my own shawl
Ever since I knew of mori, I oohed and ahhed over images of cute coordinates featuring shawls, and always wanted to buy or make one. I taught myself to knit, and after a lot of failures, finally was able to knit my own shawl! It's still one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe and I wear it constantly.
˚✩‧ Own a Popoyans CDs
Popoyans have been one of my favorite musical groups of all time since I first discovered them. The fact that they also wore mori is just a plus! Even as music moves digital, I always want to own physical copies of albums by my favorite artists. Since Popoyans is so obscure, it was especially important for me to own a copy of their music, since it could easily become lost media at any time. I own both of their released CDs, and I treasure them dearly.
Want To Do:˚✩‧ Go to a mori meet up
It's every mori person's dream, right? To go to a gathering of other mori folks, and sip tea together at a cute cafe, and maybe go on a nature walk? Sounds like a dream! Unfortunately, I lived in an area of the US with no other mori friends, and now I live in Japan where the fashion is dead. Although I've met a few mori friends in person over the years, and been to a few online meet-ups, I've still never been to a physical meet-up. I'll never give up hoping though! Maybe someday in the future I can meet for tea with other mori friends!
˚✩‧ Wear mori at a convention or in Harajuku
