Christmas Gyaru Meet with QueenE!

Funny gyaru faces

Christmas started as soon as we stepped out in the streets of Nottingham, head-to-toe in our Santa gear as we headed towards the Christmas market. By “we” I mean myself and QueenE gyarusa/gyaru circle members, and we looked fabulous! We didn’t have to walk for long and within moments we were greeted by wooden cabins with fake snow fluttering in the wind. No one batted an eyelid at our attire; well, it was December after all, so that’s basically Christmas!

I’ve been to the Birmingham Christmas market for a gal meet before, and yet Nottingham’s market was totally different but looked exactly the same. Doesn’t make sense, right? I don’t know, there was just a whole new vibe to it that was a lot calmer and more about enjoying the experience than fighting through the crowd for a frankfurter. There was also a large ice rink that was headed up by a glittering Christmas tree that towered above all of the people delicately skating around. There were even children in the mix, holding tightly onto these Penguins as they skirted around the rink. After hopping from stall to stall, we squeezed ourselves into one of the larger buildings that was filled with joyful beer drinkers, where we managed to get our first picture in front of the Christmas tree! After that there was plenty of eating (I mean, what better than an all-you-can-eat Sushi restaurant?) parapara, and as soon as Kei arrived we opened up our presents from our Secret Santas. I was seriously spoilt with a MA*RS bag, belt, earrings and a super cute and classy purse!

You know what I loved so much about this Christmas gyaru meet? It was chill. So chill. We didn’t have to worry about catching a train or missing the next bus… We had fun and took our time! It was one of the best meets I’ve ever had because I didn’t stress about how I looked nor of how low my phone battery level was (which was something I felt about the Gyaru Party in Paris, too!) I had so much fun learning parapara routines and just laying about in bed on my phone, occasionally showing my gyarusa some inspo. It was a low maintenance meet and that’s my favourite kind.

It was a pretty wonderful way to end 2018 with my gyarusa!

Have you got any plans with your gals this Christmas?

    All of your Santa dresses are so cute! The Nottingham Christmas markets sound lovely, that’s the one bad thing about the Birmingham ones they’re SO busy I can’t handle it, it’s good to hear that the Nottingham ones are calmer, I might have to check them out. So glad you had a good time and your prezzies look fab! xx

      Awh thank you! Mine and Danielle’s one was from Primark (and I believe Amber’s was from there, too!) They were super cheap and I’ll definitely wear it again for Christmas day, or at least for a Christmas meal. Oooh you should, you’d love it there!

    You all look fab!! Sounds like a brilliant day, I know what you mean with the Birmingham markets, it’s always so busy to walk around – although its not too bad for me as I live there so I can go in the week when it’s a lot more chill than the weekends! The food part sounds so good, glad you had a lovely time!!!

      Aah yes, the last time we went was on a Saturday so it probably wasn’t the best day to go to the Birmingham one! Maybe I’ll try again later on in the year. Thank you so much!

      It was just so good to relax for once, especially because all of the things I’ve been doing lately has taken a lot of energy out of me. Aah I’m so jealous you went to Blogosphere! Will you be doing a blog post about it?

    You look so cute! I’ve never been to a Christmas market! I’d love to though. I think my Mum’s been to the Birmingham one before! xxx

      Thank you so much Jenny! Ooh you definitely need to go for the experience – Nottingham might be better for you as it’s not as crowded. I found Birmingham very overwhelming! xxx

    Aww aren’t you lot the most kawaii bunch I have ever seen?! 😀 Both the Father Christmas outfits and animal onesies are adorable!

    The Nottingham German Market looks really nice to be honest. I’m so done with the Birmingham one now. xD

      Awh thank you so much, Nat! I’m so tempted to buy another onesie now and go with something leopard print haha.
      Gosh I don’t blame you – the one in Brum is so overcrowded!
