Mori Girl magazine is perhaps the staple magazine for mori girls everywhere. Each magazine is (usually) termed a ‘Lesson’, so issue one is named Lesson One, and thereafter. Apart from the Lessons, some issues are also called Mori Girl Note (1 issue), Mori Girl Papier (2 issues). There is even a Mori Girl Hair and Makeup issue. If I am not wrong there is a magazine called Papier too so it is really quite confusing.
In Singapore, it can be found (where else?) at Kinokuniya.
Where to read/download:
The J-Magazine scans LJ community is usually my first spot to look for downloads.
Moko Moko’s blog has a generous collection of almost all the issues, plus a Mori Girl Room issue which is new to me. I chanced upon her site only this morning.
vvshu.com is a Chinese website with a staggering collection of magazines. It resembles a manga site such as mangareader in terms of how it works. The only drawbacks are watermarking and that the scans cannot be saved on your computer. Click on the issue you wish to read and it would load. Navigations to go to the next page or backtrack are at the bottom (labelled ‘previous’ and ‘next’ respectively). I have linked directly to the Mori Girl magazines page. Here is the full catalogue of Fashion magazine scans, with other categories at the top of the page. (I also spy related magazines such as iedit and spoon. Yay.)
Reading online may be fun but personally nothing beats the feel of a real magazine beneath my fingers!
