Kawaii-B All About: Fairy Kei

Fairy kei is a Japanese street fashion style, that has recently exploded in popularity all across the world. With its sweet pastel colour palette similar to that of sweet lolita, it is all about being cute, sweet and you guessed it... fairy like! 

Fairy Kei often includes elements of Decora and is often confused with the Pop Kei and Party Kei styles, but they all have their staples which set them apart. Fairy kei is not the same as Pop Kei!

Fairy Kei outfits are made up almost purely of pastels, including light pink, blue, yellow and purple as the most common. White is also used to balance out candy colours. Darker colours are almost never seen as part of a fairy kei outfit.

Fairy Kei looks often also include elements of the 80's like leg warmers, and vintage cutesy designs like Barbie, Care Bears, Polly Pocket and other characters. These often cross over into Pop Kei and Spank! type outfits as well. Let's just take a quick look at the difference between these!

Clashing patterns and darker colours including black, shows a pop kei kind
of look to these outfits. The graphic patterns add to the "pop" feel, even though the girl on the
left has fairy coloured accessories and skirt.
The inclusion of darker purples, as well as black tell us this isn't
a fairy kei outfit, but what makes this Spank! look is the vintage jumper, but
most of all the polka dot skirt. Spank! style is also more to do with
wearing pre-owned clothing as opposed to brand new.
This outfit is typical Fairy Kei. What make this fairy kei, is the all pastels
colour palette, and the fluffy and floaty textures of the skirt and jumper.

One more style often confused and mixed in with Fairy Kei is Cult Party Kei. Cult Party Kei is all about layering
floaty skirts, dresses and outer garments. Often with a very light coloured palette, and include a lot of chiffon!
Of course it is up to you how you wear a style! Mixtures of Pop, Cult and Fairy Kei are very common, but now you know how to tell them apart!

So when building you fairy outfit, don't just focus on colour, think about texture. Also, oversized garments and jumpers add a really cute look especially if the jumper is fluffy. Or even a fluffy pastel scarf can add a different texture and feel to your outfit!

Here are a few great examples of fairy kei for inspiration from TokyoFashion.com! If you enjoy fairy kei, tell us what your favorite part of your outfit is, and what inspire you!

The selection is bags have a huge variety. Remember to check the rules on bags at your school however there are countless bags to choose. Maybe a shoulder bag with your favourite anime character printed on, or a Hello kitty shaped bag or maybe a Japanese high school bag. There are a variety of stores selling bags, especially at this time of the year. Also eBay has a lot of bags for descent prices.


This depends on your schools uniform code. If your not flexiable you can still wear a small Kawaii hairclip such as the one below which will add a small touch of Kawaii to a boring outfit. Or small badges/pins decorating your blazer etc (Bit not too much- don't want to turn it into more decora and get told of)

If your allowed to wear your own clothes but don't want to go too OTT its easy to make a casual outfit such as the one below. 

You can also go for a Kogal (Japanese school uniform) look


You might need somewhere to note down the information you learn to help you with studying so why not Kawaii up your notebook.

Kawaii-B All About: Maid cafes

What are maid cafes?

Maid cafes are a type of popular "Cosplay ["Costume play"] restaurants" in Japan. Maid cafes were originally for otaku (Anime and manga fans) however have became a big hit in the past few years with Kawaii culture, men, woman and touritsts. While originally in Japan, maid cafes have reached all around the world, including in London, Scotland, new york and varies other places.In the west Maids seem to have a bad reputation however in Japan maids are seen as cute. Maid cafes are usaully found in Akihabara, the central for anime and electronics in Tokyo. It is not un-common to see maids walking around Akihabara.The first permanence maid cafe is "Cure Maid cafe" which formed in 2001. 


Service in maid cafes are very cute and innocent. Guests a greeted with Okaerinasaimase goshujin-sama ("Welcome home Master/mistress") and then are treated royally for their rest of the stay at the cafe. 

 In some cafes customers can play games with the maids. For an additional fee customers can sometimes have pictures taken with their maid. 

There are also cafes which feature there own theme, for example Nagomi in Akihabara follows the theme of little sisters.

Maid Uniforms

Each maid cafe requires a maid styled uniform. The uniform ranges from each cafe however they usually all include a maid dress (Usually black, white or pastels), a petticote underneath to create a poof, a apron of some kind, a hair accessory (Usually a maid headdress or headbow- sometimes even both), over the knee socks or stockings and shoes (Which range from heels to flats) Sometimes certain cafes uniforms include cat ears. To the left you can see a full shot of  maids uniform which shows the cafe's unique heart shaped petticoat under the hem of the dress.Maid uniforms are also popular for Cosplay. There are a vairety of places to buy them from, including Storenvy, Taobao, Bodyline and eBay. 


On of the things that makes maid cafes adorable is the menu. When you hear "Maid cafes" you might think of Omu-Raisu ("Omlete rice") which is one of the most known cuisines in maid cafes, they are usually decorated by a drawing and text in ketchup which the customer can choose. Besides Omu-Raisu cutely decorated food such as milkshakes with chocolate art (As seen to the left can be seen), sweet deserts such as cakes, Pafaits,  and even for those not fond of sweet food, Maid cafe's also offer curry's, Spagheti and a variety of other food. Drinks will typically be hot chocolate, coffee, tea and Cocca cola 


Maid cafes also offer  performances where they will dance along to Kawaii songs, usually Jpop (Japanese pop music) or songs from anime such as K-on. For example "Hapi Hapi Morningu" is usually associated with maid cafes. Some cafes also create there own music for example Maidreamin have there own special music which is usually heard from outside the cafe!The dances are full of energy, creating a fun atmosphere.  Maid cafe performances can also be seen on stages at Anime conventions, such as M.O.E ("Maids of England") performing at Hyper Japan 2014 in London. 

There are also rules to protect those who work at the cafes. These are the usual rules you will see:

That's it for today's post. 
Have you ever been to a maid cafe? Or do you work in one?
