Too many abysses to fall in

Sylph of Life
Drih, 23 years, Brazil, at your service. Welcome to this madness of fandoms and bitching at life, and please, make yourself at home. You'll find a profusion of Hetalia, Homestuck, Persona, Kingdom Hearts, Free!, Final Fantasy and Tales of the Abyss, plus a lot of anime and plants, because botany is awesome and I won't accept anything said against it. Check my taglist to see my interests. Vriska Serket is my queen, Wang Yao is my prince, Naoto Shirogane is a diva, Luke fon Fabre is too cute for his own good and Ludwig Beilschmidt really needs a hug.

THE BEGINNINGS OF KAWAII

No, no, you have no idea. It actually IS the beginning of the whole so-called “kawaii culture”. And it started because girls started using mechanical pencils, which provided fine handwriting. After being banished (more precisely, during the 80s), this kind of writing started being used in products like magazines and make-up. And, during this time, icons we usually associate with the whole kawaii industry (like the characters from Sanrio) came to life too.
And what many people don’t realize is that this subculture was born as a way for young girls to express themselves in their own way. And it was also used as something against the adult life and the traditional culture, often seen as dull and boring and oppressive. By embracing cuteness, these young girls (and adult women, after a while) were showing non-conformation with the current standards.
So yep. Kawaii is important, and it all started with cute, simple handwritting a few hearts and cat faces in some girls’ school notebooks <3
