Ma’ love for MANGA!

So you’ve probably heard of manga or anime, the Japanese style of drawing or fashion. But we’re not goanna be focusing on the art side of things but instead the dress!

Manga Fashion is huge in Japan and people often dress to suit their favourite character in a certain anime series.
Below are some popular manga anime comics and some characters that people might base their style on:

Ok so their are many more but you know… But what’s the message here, huh? Well the whole thing about ‘being British’ is all about being individual and not following the crowd; now i’m not saying you have to go all Paradise Kiss but just injecting a little bit of you’re own uniqueness in your everyday style!
Below are some more pics of how people have used manga in their daily style…

However, manga isn’t just a fashion but as I said before it’s a form of art. Now I know Anime is ment to be extremely difficult and…yeah… really difficult! But I thought I’d have a go anyway:

ART SPEAKS TO US IN A WAY YOU CANNOT SPEAK

THERE’S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FIRST IMPRESSION AND A BIG IMPRESSION

WE DON’T HIDE IN THE SHADOWS, WE ARE NOT AFRAID

I SHOW THINGS HOW I SEE IT NOT HOW PEOPLE WANT ME TO SEE IT

I’M THE HAPPIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD

WE DON’T WANT TO BE THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, WE WANT TO BE THE PEOPLE WE WANT TO BE

LIVE TO LAUGH, LAUGH TO LIVE

WE ARE THE PEOPLE

The quotes above are all important to us, and are personal in different ways. Like an image which is personal to us for, example to one person a picture could symbolise victory and leadership but to another it could represent sadness and loss. So I’d thought I’d show you some kinda a random photos/paintings/so on some the make me laugh and some that make me think. But how does this link to fashion you may ask? Well if you see someone walking down the street in a red robe people might say they look to big for their boots or like they’re going to a fancy dress party however some might say that they look proud, individual and beautiful…

Margot Bowman wrote the title quote, it’s something I think is important, breaking the boundries if it means being you

Next up it Kelly Avrili, fellow blogger Ophelia H –Who’s that Girl Blog (click link) was talking about how much of a cool dude she was so you know I thought I’d check her out!

Finally…

Doesn’t she make you wanna draw? Check out the rest of her cartoons on flickr if you type in peanutbutterpigeonpants’

So I was thinking of who to do next and decided to look at Kelly Avrili’s favourite photo’s and found someone on flickr called The Downtown Llama or Brie who described herself as “A boring teenager who enjoys drawing & music.”  and here’s a few of her drawings…

ok well, I hope that wasn’t too random but I love the photos so… why not?

Photographer Maia Flore: My Dreamy Afternoon

So, A Dream Away…You know this that feeling when you just want to get away from the world either dreaming or just staring out of the window; it’s the place you can rely on when you’re soooo totally stressed. So (wait I keep on say so… hmmm…) anyway when I’m stressed I never want to read people blabbing on random-ly (oh wait I’m doing that.. AAWWWKWWARDDD!) So yeah I’m just goanna leave you with these awesome photos by French photographer -Maia Flore and her photos.

Check out her blog –belopotosky.com

Ahhh-Catching Title

OK so I’m not feeling super great AT ALL as I’ve been forced to run 1500m and since I’m already bad enough at sport ahhhhh! oh soz about the random stuff, but this can only be my own fault and think I’ve been given signs. First I right a blog about my negative opinions of sport then I convince myself that it’s actually not that bad. Are you reading this person who forced me to do it? Do you read mind -ok that sounds wierd-.

Ok so I thought we’d just look at some really eye catching pieces…

Photo A

OK so all these pictures are from vogue but it’s probably a good idea to start with photo A, these outfits may come as a shock to you because they’re not practially sophisticated or ‘swarve’ but eccentric and O.T.T however surprisingly beautiful and in a way elegant. It’s also almost like a mix of every period of time for example on th second left it looks like a very heavy material which was very popular centries ago. Overall these are eye catching, dynamic pieces that are mainly interesting because they are just so different and individual to everything else!

PHOTO B! This is probably my favourite out of the three photos, the first one that caught my eye was of the amazing outfit with the wooden spiral skirt. This collection of looks complete shows what fashion is all about, breaking boundaries  and wearing want you want to show off your individual personality. I think we have a bit of everything here: Aztec, an interpretation of a classic 20s look, a ‘home made’ around the house item and an outfit inspired by the Roman? -Birds?

PHOTO C it’s like my idea of christmas, we’ve got the decorations, christmas rappers and…CANDYFLOSS. My favourite is the second to the right the rainbow colours the outstanding shape and I also love how you can’t see the heads of the models as it does not distract you from the wonderful outfits!
