Recent Gyaru Meetups!

Hey everyone! How are you today?
I was so happy to see a lot of positive reactions from my last post "What Gyaru Means to Me"~ it really means a lot that you guys are so supportive, and looking at my old posts reminded me of the early excitement of discovering a new style. When I saw gyaru I knew that I had finally found "me"! I'm so happy that that excitement hasn't died down! Gyaru is so amazing.

I've been dressing in gyaru more recently which is good because while I was at uni I missed out on dolling up quite a lot, especially when I started working... So it was really refreshing! I also went to some meetups this past week.

London Meetup!
The first was in London; it was organised by someone else this time which was really nice for a change as it meant that I would meet more people! I wanted to go for a casual agejo style, but still managed to make my hair and makeup pretty dramatic.

I've been recently trying out eye lid tape but I'm not very good at putting it on ._. like it always looks a bit bumpy? At least they look okay in selfies and from a distance haha. If anyone has any advice that would be great!

By the time I got to London I was starving, but that didn't stop me from taking some purikura! I made some new friends at the meet which was really nice. And I also finally met Shay and Sari! I know them both online and they are so sweet!

After that it was time to eat, and as we were a pretty big group we split into two parts. Half of us went to a Japanese restaurant for some ramen! Then we took a few pictures before going to get some bubble tea! We were avoiding going outside because it was incredibly cold. So much for the whole spring-is-coming feeling >_>

Sari! She was so sweet & lovely to talk to! Photo taken from Sari~

People started leaving to catch trains home after that so me & Marie went to see our other friends for some dinner before I had to head home. The meet was overall really good! I managed to not only meet some new people, but some that I haven't seen for years like my friend Bunny who created the gyaru meme with me! It was so amazing, I really can't wait to see everyone again.

Casual Gyaru Day
The next meet was when I met up with a new(ish) gyaru, Danielle! I met her briefly last year at MCM Expo and it was really nice to get to know her a bit more. This time I went for a "casual" gyaru style; I actually really like doing this! It's nice to be able to do gyaru with normal clothes tehe. I think I might do this more often... I was really inspired by Chie & Chika's style. I just love how they look undeniably gyaru with clothes you can grab from just about anywhere.

I also tried out adding a bit of blue to my eyeshadow - I really want to start adding more colour to my makeup! I'm getting bored of just browns and blacks all of the time. I'm still not really good at applying eyelid tape... I'll get there one day! And eurgh my blue eyeshadow didn't really show up in these photos, typical.

The meet was pretty casual and we just talked about all things gyaru like how it was back in the day and just stuff like that in general. It was really nice! But ofc we had to take some selfies tehe.

I realise that the right photo isn't a very flattering angle for me but Danielle looks so cute!

I was very good and only bought myself a drink, some foundation (it was a neccessity) and these really cute daisy earrings that were on sale for £1! How could I say no?


Aaaaand that's it for this week! I want to wear gyaru more often in my daily life! It's been fun :D

Until next week my cuties!

  22. I'm actually pretty curious about applying eyelid tape. I bought eyelid glue once and tried it several times but it ended kinda horrible. :( It was itchy and didn't work at all. So I wanted to try tape as well but never bought any. XD Tell me how it is going for you.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's actually really easy to do, and you don't feel it at all! It might take a while to get used to the visual-difference, but now I can't go without it when I do gyru makeup haha. You should definitely try it out!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Awh thank you so much sweetie! *3* I really want to meet you! Let me know when you're in the UK :D
    I actually prefer some of my casual agejo coords tehe ~

  25. Thank you so much! Yeah it's really refreshing :D And I tend to spend more time and effort on my hair and makeup ^^

  26. Your first outfit is sooo cute! Who is that gal with the hot pink hair? I
    love her hair! lol I also loved that girls hair with the upper half
    pink. (sorry i don't keep track of the names). And yes lol foundation
    technically is a necessity... or I like to think. I like your casual
    style, too. Yeah, some people can just pull of gyaru with anything and
    everything! Lol they've mastered the make.

  27. Awh thank you so much' ;3
    The girl with pink hair is Shay, and the one with part pink hair is Melissa ^^ haha that's okay! I'm not too good with names either ^^"

    I agree! The makeup means everything ^^
