Shiro-Nuri and Minori

I think everyone who is into Lolita and other Japanese subcultures have heard something about Minori. I think I saw her about one year ago for the first time on a street style website and I was completely amazed by her. I have to admit she is one of my favorite artists since then because she is so unique and inspiring.

Minori wears the Shiro-Nuri subculture, I'm not sure you can call it a fashion style because it's not all about fashion. That's why I prefer to call it a subculture. Then how do you recognize someone who is part of the Shiro-Nuri subculture, if it's not about a special style of clothing? The white painted skin of course. ^__^  There is a lot of freedom in the subculture because of that, it's not the same as lolita for example when you need to wear a petticoat no matter what. Minori's outfits and make-up are designed by herself, she often remakes existing clothing. 

Minori - Her Memories of a Dream (37)

I really look up to Minori because she is so beautiful and unique and also because of her amazing personality. Her idea that it's so important to be yourself is so true. I think that makes her even more special, she does not dress up as Shiro-Nuri, it's her true self. I'm not really sure but I feel it's like that.This is not fashion anymore this is more than fashion, it's art I think! I'm really looking foward to see more of Minori in the future, it makes me so happy to see pictures of her. It makes me realize that it's so important to be yourself because then you have the strength to even make miracles happen.

      Please watch this interview on youtube, I won't regret watching it. ^__^

I am really amazed by Minori and I really want to be Shiro-Nuri myself one day.
I don't want to do the same thing as Minori, I want to give it my own twist and add some of my own ideas of Shiro-Nuri in my (future) looks.
Although I really want to try this I'm not sure if it will work out well, I did some research and it's not going to be easy... Guess what? I'm not going to give up that easily...
What do you think.. should I give it a try or is it something that I must not do because I can't? (because of it's Minori's style, it wouldn't suit me or whatever you may think of)
Please tell me!

  1. I really like her personality as well, I really like shiro nuri, but it doesn't feel like me, but I admire how she became herself. I truly believe you can find true happiness if you become yourself. I truly feel like myself in lolita for example. It is the best feeling ever.

    I think shiro nuri would suit you and if you feel like trying it, I think you should do it!^^

    1. That's so true, everyone can find true happiness by becoming yourself. It's great that you feel like that in lolita! ^__^ I really admire Minori, I don't think what she says is only for shiro nuri but also for lolita and other styles and subcultures and even when it's not about fashion at all.

      I think I'm going to try it, I have many ideas I hope it will work out well.

  2. She is so amazing! <3 And I really want to try it out too! (although the real stuff to make your face white is so expensive! O__O)

    But yeah, I think the only way to find out if it would suit you, is to try it out! :)

    1. She definitely is! I read that on facebook, I'm really curious about your shiro nuri look. ^^ The real stuff to make your face white is so expensive indeed, I saw that when I did my research. I have also found a old tutorials from Mana's make-up, he also made his face white in the early Malice Mizer era... I think it's a very useful tutorial only I can't read what kind of make-up he used. >.<

  3. Wow, she looks amazing, I love her looks ♥ She looks so beautiful and unique, great style!

    Would be great and fun to try this out ^^
    And I hope you will also try it out for yourself. That way you will find out if it suits you and wheter you like it on yourself. And even if it wouldn't look good, you can atleast say you have tried it. :)

    1. Yes, she is! ^__^ I never saw something like this before I was so amazed, hahaha!

      I think it's a great new challenge and if it's nothing going to suit me I will find it out soon..
      I really hope it will suit me after all..

  4. She looks so pretty and she really have the talent of involving you into her world. I wonder how she looked in lolita before though~

    Post photos when you try shironuri ♥

    1. That's for sure and about her involving other people in her world is even more amazing. I showed this video to some of my friends (who aren't into Japanese fashion and such) and they were even amazed by her personality.

      I will, In a few weeks I will show the first photos of the outfit. ^__^
