Baby Steps to Hime Gyaru!

This was going to be a post about my Christmas celebrations but seeing as I haven’t taken any photos… Well, that’s not going to happen but I do have a photo of my outfit and my face to make up for it! I tried out hime gyaru because I finally managed to get my hands on a Princess Melody dress. It was really short (you could see my butt cheeks) so I bought a skirt to go underneath it.

When I was doing some inspiration-searching for hime style I realised that it’s probably easier for me to try out hime gyaru rather than hime kaji because it consists of a lot of pink! I’m going to try to incorporate hime into my agejo style, and my inspiration for this is Himena Ousaki. If you don’t know her, she’s basically the epitome of hime gyaru. Here are photos of her doing hime gyaru and agejo.

I did some more searching and decided to compare the two styles to figure out their similarities.

So things I need to look out for are:

Mainly pink clothes & shoes

OTT accessories – especially for hair and necklaces!

Princess Melody accessories & bags

♡ Bows & frills

Pink
and white is used quite a lot in hime gyaru (from what I’ve seen
while browsing on Tumblr) whereas pink and black is used more in
agejo… So I guess pink is definitely good for both wardrobes! I’ve
also noticed that they’ve both incorporated bows and frills in their
clothes too. Maybe it might not be too difficult for me to do this after all?

But I’m going to transition to hime very slowly! I’m taking baby steps. I’m really excited to see where this takes me – and maybe one day I can meet Himena and tell her how much she’s inspired me!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post… It’s probably not very useful but I like to write down my thoughts on here.

See you next Sunday!
