Day O1 - When did you start dressing Gyaru?


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!:

  3. Olol, I remember the VERY first time I saw you post in the everyday_gyaru community on LJ. (Excuse my weirdness, but I only lurk. Too scared to attempt gyaru fashion every day.) You have definitely progressed a lot. Even as someone who is not gyaru but only an admirer or gyaru, I think it's obvious how dedicated you were to making the change. I admire you a lot. ^^

  4. Even without all the false lashes, you were super pretty. Now that you have the makeup pretty much perfectly down, you look even better.

    Since I'm pretty new to you blog, I wonder what you are, like your heritage? Do you have any asian in you? Your eyes are so pretty ! !
