Bringing Back Natural

Obviously, I spend a lot of time thinking about and overanalyzing Kibbe. One of the things that has thrown me for a loop as of late is the fact that Kibbe has gotten rid of the Natural category. Now, getting rid of Classic and Gamine I understand. Very few people will be either a perfect blend of the two or a perfect contrast of the two. Nearly everyone will fall a tiny bit on the side of one or the other. But Natural is different. Natural is only one element, blunt yang, which you can also sometimes find in Dramatic Classic and Flamboyant Gamine.

The other pure types, Dramatic and Romantic, can still be found in Kibbe. Yes, Dramatics are rare, but he didn’t get rid of them completely. So why did he get rid of the pure version of the other element in the system?

I don’t have much to say about this. I’m just confused right now.

So is OG Natural Ingrid Berman.

    Novel cord fasteners are called “frogs” in sewing. They are usually found on traditional Chinese clothes and they were popular in the 1920’s, 50’s and 80’s. I would think they would be more of a dramatic or classic detail, not natural, but that is just my opinion.

      I’m not sure what this is in response to, since this post didn’t mention anything about them, but that kind of small detail is generally not restricted to one Image ID in Kibbe. You can find them on garments that would suit every Image ID IMO.
