How "Mori" are you?: A just for fun Mori Girl quiz!

So I recently came across a Lolita Level Up quiz and I thought it might be fun if I made one for Mori Kei as well. Please keep in mind that this is totally just for fun, and is in no way meant to be an accurate judge of how "mori" you really are. I tried to keep the questions mostly related to the fashion, and the things that are widely accepted as being a part of a mori lifestyle. If you have any ideas for a point you think I might have missed, or one you think should be removed, please let me know! Also, feel free to repost this wherever, just please send me a link, or link back to me, as I'd like to see your results.

1-18: You're a Forest Admirer!
You've probably just discovered Mori and are giving it a look to see if it's something you're interested in, or maybe you've just started wearing Mori. Either way, welcome to the forest deer! 

19-36: You're Tiptoeing Through the Tulips!
You're probably a newbie to Mori, but you know at least the basics of the fashion. You've also probably made your first coordinate, or are working on one.

37-54: You're a Forest Sapling!
You've probably been wearing Mori for a little while. You most likely know your way around the fashion pretty well, and are at least semi-serious about it.

55-72: You're a Delightful Deer!
You've probably been wearing Mori for at least a year, or you really liked the fashion and jumped in head first! You know your way around the fashion well now, and you've probably helped out others in the fashion. You're probably also living a somewhat Mori lifestyle as well.

73-90: You're a Full-time Forest Friend!
You're most likely an experienced, full-time Mori Girl. You've probably also been into the fashion for a good while. It's also my guess that there is a good chance you were dressing and/or living like a Mori girl before you even knew it had a name!

91+ You're a Real Life Forest Nymph!
Are you Choco? You must really really love Mori to score this high! You're most likely the real-life embodiment of the ideal Mori Girl. Congratulations my deer!

I hope you enjoyed this quiz! I'm a Full-time Forest Friend myself! How did you score? I hope you'll let me know!


  1. I had fun doing this! I feel somehow relieved I'm still a delightful deer (XD) even if my tastes are changing and I'm not so mori anymore, as mori is the only fashion community I ever really felt a part of

  2. I'm a "Delightful Deer", too. ^^
    In Germany there are no people to compare me to Amish or mennonites, though.
    I'll also post my result at my blog (with links, of course), I'll ping you when it's published!

    1. Can't wait to read it! I thought about removing the Amish/Mennonite one, but I constantly get asked that even though I live near Amish country. So I ended up keeping it ;)

  3. Full time forest friend! I have never been compared to the Amish or Mennonites, but that's likely because I live in Amish Paradise Pennsylvania. Everyone knows the difference. I have been told that I look like a character from a book or video game. :D

  4. Yay!! I'm a Full-time Forest Friend! To sooo many things on your list I was like "aww I wish I did that", or "I have plans to do that soon!"
    Quizzes like these remind me of those magazine quizzes I used to do way back in middle school. Fun and nostalgic hehe!

    1. It is kind of like that, isn't it? I always loved magazine quizzes :)

  5. That was fun, thanks! I'm a Delightful Deer too, and would probably score more except that my workplace has a formal dress code. I try to slip in a hairbow or some cute earrings every day though. ^u^

  6. I'm a Delightful Deer (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧
    I think your quiz is really fun to do so I want to ask for your permission to translate this quiz into Vietnamese so the girls in our community can understand it too.
    Of course I will credit you properly and post the translated one on my blog.

    Looking forward to your reply (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

    1. I would be honored if you would translate it! I'm so glad you like it *^v^*

    2. Thank you so much (´ヮ`)

  7. Hej, I wrote my blog post about the quiz, you can find it here:


  8. Helloo!
    I'm "Tiptoeing through the Tulips". Is there any advice you could give me on becoming more of a mori girl? I like the style very much, because the lifestyle makes me much happier than my current, rather Gothic livelihood.
    Thank you! And blessings! ^-^~<3
