I loooove a challenge, and the other day me and my friend Bunny decided to create a “30 Day Gyaru Meme/Challenge” for other gyaru to participate in! We did this by mixing together a few existing memes and then changing them for gyaru. They’re relatively easy prompts that anyone can use regardless of whether you’re a beginner or a fully-fledged gal. You’re more than welcome to use it, but please credit us!

Okay so let’s move onto day 01..
Day 01 – When Did You Start Doing 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.
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 and she helped me out a lot! 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.
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!:
That’s all for now! I’m going to be posting a sponsored review for circle lenses in my next post, so keep an eye on it for me? ;D
