Inspiration: Princess Jellyfish

Princess Jellyfish (Kuragehime; 海月姫)is an Japanese manga series featuring otaku (Japanese counterpart of geek but with more negative connotations). The otaku sisterhood Amars, along with a trendy cross dresser, form a fashion brand to raise enough money to buy their home back, which is facing the threat of redevelopment. They call the brand "Jellyfish" because Tsukimi (the main character) designed the dresses and drew inspiration from her favourite animal - Jellyfish. They create dresses that are more avant-garde in the beginning and attempt to develop a line of ready-to-wear, realising the challenges that come along with creating a new brand and generally speaking, entrepreneurism.

I have a soft spot for this manga. I adore jellyfish, though I don't fancy having them as pets (I hear they're quite finicky).

The live-action is to be out at the end of this year. My expectations aren't that high but that is because I don't like to place high expectations on what I watch.

There are a couple of outfits I love that Kuranosuke wears in the manga/anime. He definitely has a flair for style. Here's a few tips to gain:

1. Don't be afraid of a statement piece

2. Learn to accessorise

3. Experiment

3. Get a signature perfume

4. Shop within your budget

5. Don't let anyone get you down

In any case, I'm stoked for the live action.
