So me and the lovely Alice decided to create Gyaru 30-day meme together! We did this by mixing together a few existing memes and then changing them for Gyaru~
And you are more than welcome to use it! :3 Just give us some credit tehehe~
We're going to do it every three days instead due to our busy schedule, and today is "When did you start dressing Gyaru?"
I stumbled across Gyaru when I decided that Lolita was not the best fashion for me. I just couldn't see myself wearing it in public, and even though I found it beautiful I just felt uncomfortable after I tried it out a couple of times. I wished that I could wear it with the confidence that other Lolitas had, and I didn't have the support from my family whenever I did try it on...
Luckily I didn't even wear it properly and didn't really own any Lolita items, so it was easy for me to leave the fashion. I started wearing clothes that were girly and that led me onto my craze for Hello Kitty.
For two years I wasn't in any kind of fashion, just floating away and wearing whatever clothes that I could get my hands on, so most of the time I was just wearing jeans and t-shirts. Nothing special really. Then - I can't really remember how - I was just surfing on Google when I came across another fashion; Hime gyaru. I reminded me so much of Lolita but then I realised that there was another substyle called Hime-kei which I could possibly wear. I decided to research further and found all of the other substyles of Gyaru, and fell in love with it straight away.
It was because I could actually wear Gyaru that made me love it, and I was amazed by their makeup and hair. But I still had the n00bness in me and thought that I could get away with wearing BARELY ANY MAKEUP OTL
How the hell did I call this Gyaru? o_O sdkgjbskdjfbgf .
Unfortunately I was like this for a while -_- But then I finally began to make some improvement when I had my first ever advice from Kogal Panel.
From then on I decided that I actually really liked this fashion, and started to get pretty serious. I started doing a lot of research for more tutorials and magazines and started to try out casual styles. That's when I started talking to Amelie who was my first ever Gyaru friend :D And she helped me out a crap load! After a couple of weeks I was then part of Delight - a UK Gyarusa that has now unfortunately disbanded - and did my best to improve even more.
Trying out bottom lashes for the first time!
That's when I bought my first pair of Japanese lashes, and that changed the way I did my make entirely! I began to focus more on trying out different styles and shades of eyeshadow. I also experimented with different hair styles and bought more clothes.
For a couple of months I changed my style from Hime-kei and casual Gyaru to a more dramatic side of things. That's when it became my anniversary in Gyaru... Which has just passed 3 or 4 months ago ^^ So this is a picture of where I am now!:
