Mori Kei 30 Day Challenge: 2022 Revamp

Many, many years ago (and by that I mean almost 10 years ago now wow I feel old) a tumblr user called Shady Oaks made the first and most well known list of mori prompts, known as the Mori Girl 30 Day Challenge. The prompts were very well loved and many people completed them multiple times, including myself! But by this point, the prompts are kind of old and some of them are a little too specific to the time, in my opinion. So, I thought, why not make my own list of prompts! 

I decided to use some of the original prompts, but I've also added some of my own questions to spice things up. Hopefully you enjoy, and please make sure to link me your responses if you complete this challenge!

The Prompts

  1. How did you discover mori kei? What attracted you to the style?
  2. What was your first mori outfit? Share pictures or describe it. How does it compare to your current style?
  3. What are your inspirations for your own fashion style? Do you have anyone that inspires your style? Or any themes?
  4. How does where you live influence your expression of mori kei? 
  5. Let's talk about lifestyle! What do you consider to be activities that fit a "mori lifestyle"? Do you have any "mori hobbies"?
  6. What is your favorite hairstyle to wear with mori?
  7. What season is your favorite to wear mori, and why?
  8. What trends or changes do you wish would become popular in the mori community?

  15. What are your favorite books, movies, or TV shows? Do they have any mori themes?

  20. Make a mood board or photo collage of images that inspire your mori style and life! You can include fashion, lifestyle, or anything else you like.
  21. Are you interested in Japanese culture? If so, how has it impacted mori kei for you?

  28. What is your biggest tip or trick about wearing mori? Any style hacks, shop suggestions, or so on?
  29. Have you made any mori friends? If so, how did you meet them? Let's share where we can meet with other mori folk!
  30. If you were a mythological creature, what kind of creature would you be? (ex. an elf, a centaur, a witch, etc.)
I will be completing the prompts myself! I hope you can follow along and have fun discussing mori with me! Until next time, my deers!

  1. That’s a great set of questions, and I think I’ll undertake this challenge in October. I’ll come back and share a link when I’ve completed all 30. Thanks for the inspiration!
