So I was complaining about how Kinokuniya doesn’t bring in Girl’s Style in advance.. well they do for KERA ❤ So I have the march issue with me now hehe! Although, I think the June issue must be out in Japan by now……
For those of you who don’t know, KERA is a Japanese fashion magazine specializing in Harajuku lolita and punk style. Now, I’m actually not a fashion person- my sense of fashion is like non-existent lol. To be quite honest, the only reason I bought it is because when I went to Kinokuniya on 30 Jan they didn’t have the Feb issue of Girl’s Style and I didn’t want to go back empty handed.. bleh here I am complaining about Girl’s Style again. Stahp, me :< In any case, most of the clothes in KERA are reaaaaaally expensive (usually 8000 yen and up) so I suppose it’s for the better I don’t try to emulate them?
First off, let me introduce my idol Akira ❤ Akira is like, my favourite Japanese model. Actually, she’s the only Japanese model I know/recognize in pictures. Here’s a few of them ;D
She’s damn pretty omg. Those cheekbones ❤ I wish I could look like her but I’m ugly as shiet 😦
Anyways, this issue of KERA has a section in the middle with basic makeup tutorials for various fashion styles, like Romantic, Innocent, Older Sister, Cool Punk, etc. I was seriously reminded of Tokimeki Memorial Girl Side’s fashion system while reading this 😀 Since I’m an unfashionable bodo, I’m not going to be using these makeup tips, but some of the makeup was really nice to look at 🙂 I like Innocent, in particular:
And I also thought the Party Queen eyes were really cool, even if the overall look was quite freaky:
And Akira was the model so of course I loved Neo-Japanesque and Cool Boys.
For the whole magazine, here were my favourite outfits:
Favourite Punk outfit:
It was always going to be Akira.
Favourite Lolita outfit:
I tend to like the frilly lolita dresses more, and black is one of my favourite colours 🙂
And my least favourite:
Bleh just idk man. It just doesn’t work for me. It’s not ghastly, but it’s not good, and most of the other stuff in KERA is really good.
Oh and this is random but there was an ad for Vistlip inside ❤
I love Vistlip ❤
