    TokyoFashion, thank you. You were the website that helped me to get into Japanese Fashion further, and introduced Japanese styles I love the most now, including shiro-nuri. Minori is a very talented person, and I admire her a lot. She’s got so much inspiration and also giving so much to her admirers. Seeing this collaboration, I exploded with joy. This pictures are pure beauty. I believe such talented persons with so much devotion to their unique fashion styles should get more attention worldwide. They deserve it. Thank you for bringing me this. Thank you.

    Jasmine (December 23, 2012)

    I would love to know what face paint she uses to get her face perfectly white. It must be along the lines of grease paint, but what kind and how does she do it?

    She’s awesome!

    The pictures are beautiful and the colours of her dresses are in harmony with the background.

    She really inspired me !
    I would like to be like her, but in Belgium, it is difficult to express yourself in that way.

    Really Cool! keep doing, it’s amazing!

    (it would be nice to do a photoshoot with her =’D)

    These photos are absolutely stunning! Minori’s skill in creating such beautiful make-up & dress with those settings make this a wonderful collection. Several of these are now wallpaper for my devices. They are even more stunning when looking at them up on a large LED tv! Kudos!

  39. 39.

    Valentine (December 28, 2012)

    Oh, I’m such in love with Minori! She’s really exquisite. She can’t express herself with smiles and that kind of things, but her eyes talks by themselves. All the pictures are so delicate that I love it.

    Thanks for this publication!

    CJ (January 14, 2013)

    @Lucy – I would suggest you check out http://www.hannari-ya.com/shironuriinfo.html or similar sites for information on how to apply shiro nuri. An Internet search on “geisha shironuri makeup” should net you several sources for the powder.

    Sephira Moonsliver (April 8, 2013)

    A very beautiful, elfin-like fantasy look/image in all the photos. seems surreal and yet so perfect. i am thinking did she get her inspiration from Malice Mizer (Mana)? It is very creative of her to incorporate the kimono obi belt into her outfit. Very mystical and grand photoshoot! I am so in love with the photos :O)

  63. 63.

    Karin~ (April 11, 2013)

    I love the images you’ve shot here. I met Minori in Harajuku a few weeks ago in mid June. She’s ever so cute, so nice. I only mot a few street style snaps of her but she’s a dream. a total pro at what she does. Give me a shout if you’re ever in London.

    I am absolutely amazed again !!! . I just love this style so much and her imagination of making these clothing’s. Her makeup skills are so wonderful with the flower details and the colour combines very nicely together.I am very proud to met such a beautiful girl with her imaginations . I hope to see more of her style around Harajuku if I ever go there

    Yuki (August 16, 2013)

    I also really liked the last dress. It had an “East meets West” feel to it with the obi and the western style dress. And the Hat was adorable!

    Aly (August 17, 2013)

    Wow. Just Wow ! :D So Amazing. Its like a Fairy. I love it !

    Give her a guitar and she could almost be Hizaki. Almost.

    Rex Harrison (August 31, 2013)

    I’m just in awe! The video of this shoot was impressive, but the photos themselves are particularly brilliant. Hats off to the photographer; lovely work, every image is sublime. Minori herself has crafted an amazing character, with elements of fairy tale, Pre-Raphaelite, Shakespearean Comedy/Fantasy and manga all cobbled together to spectacular effect. It has historical precedents, too – it’s easy to see geisha aspects and both Noh and Kabuki theatre elements – but beyond all that is her own fabulous imagination. Although they come from quite different generations and cultures, I can’t help but compare her to Verushka, the model famous for her extraordinary body painting. I hope Minori continues with her art (because she has elevated dressing up into art!), I’m sure it can be extended even further, perhaps into theatre or cinema.

    о бооже,она прекрасна!!давно видела эти фотографии на разных сайтах и не могла найти источник,как же мне нравится этот стиль. Все детали проработаны и на фото это выглядит потрясающе!) жаль что там где я проживаю подобного не одобрят окружающие,как впрочем и многие другие стили одежды из Японии((

    Lia Lolita (November 13, 2013)

    I love her so much! I’m from Germany. If you wear subcultural clothes and/or make up, theres no way to get through streets withoutpeople laughing about you. That hurts. But I will wear outfits like that at conventions. Just because Minori made me loving them so much, i can’t stop thinking about it!
