How + Where to Buy Gyaru Brand Clothes

“Lizzie, where do you buy your gyaru brand clothes from?” “What shops do you buy from?” “Where did you get your MA*RS dress from?” Are the most frequently asked questions popping up on my instagram as well as my facebook page, so today I’ve put all of my favourite shops all in one place with the help of my QueenE gals & bestie Chewiee! So read on for more info on where, and how, to buy gyaru brand…

To make things easier, I have split this article into two sections: one where you can buy directly from the seller/store, and the other where you have to use a shopping service.

No Shopping Service Required

DreamV/Yumetenbo – Global Ratuken

One of the first gyaru brand item I got was from my then-boyfriend (now husband!) on my 17th birthday – he got me two tops from DreamV and I still have them in my wardrobe! What’s great about Global Ratuken is that, well you guessed it, you can shop globally so you don’t need to worry about having to find a shopping service.

Gyaru Sales on Facebook

This is my favourite place to buy from, and in fact 90% of my gyaru wardrobe comes from here. You don’t have to worry about things like shopping services and can buy directly from the individual, and people are usually honest about the condition the items they’re selling are in. This is where I buy most of my MA*RS items. I won’t link it as it’s a private group, but you can search for it when you log in on FB.

Kawaii Gyaru Shop*

I’ve worked with them for years, and this is where I get 98% of my Liz Lisa clothes from, and Stephanie (the owner) is such a darling! You can get a lil’ discount with the code LIZBEE if you spot anything you like.

Tokyo Kawaii Life

Although I’ve not personally bought from this website, I’ve heard a lot of good things about it and it’s incredibly easy to buy Liz Lisa items from. They ship internationally so no need to worry about getting a shopping service!

Emilie’s Sales on Facebook

Another place that sells secondhand Liz Lisa, often in immaculate condition. I bought a Liz Lisa jumpsuit from here and it arrived really quickly and in perfect condition.

CDJapan

Technically not where I buy gyaru brand, but this is where I get all of my gyaru magazines including the latest EGG mook. No shopping service required, and you can purchase directly from their store. Easy peasy like lemon squeasy!

Shopping Service Required

Buying Directly from the Brand Itself

Now you can buy directly from the brand stores themselves, but it’s obviously going to be a lot more expensive buying it secondhand. My friend Chewiee sometimes does this and she uses the shopping service Japonica to get the items for her. They have more details on their website on how to use it, which you can read here.

Mercari

This is by far one of the most popular sites to buy secondhand gyaru brand from, and one that a lot of my QueenE gals vouch for! It’s all in Japanese so I’d recommend loading it up in Google Chrome, and you’ll have to use a shopping service to purchase from there. Amber, from QueenE, uses japanshoppingservice and they have provided a how-to guide here. Please note: that shopping services often take a small fee (service fee) and you’d have to pay for two lots of shipping – one to the service, and then to your place.

Black Queen – Ratuken

Ratuken – not to be confused with Global Ratuken – is a Japanese site which you do need a shopping service for (you can use japanshoppingservice for this as well). This Ratuken shop in particular, Black Queen, is great for those who are into oraora and tsuyome styles. Please note: Tenso is advertised a lot on there but it is a huge ripoff compared to other SS.

Taobao

The key place to get replica gyaru brand for a fraction of the price, and where the material is often a lil’ bit better than the real deal. Again, you’d need to use a shopping service for this (I used to use Taobaospree but I don’t know if they’re active anymore) so Amber recommends Spreenow. Here’s a how-to guide on how to use their website.

And there we have it! These are all shops/websites that myself or my QueenE gals use on a regular basis to buy our gyaru clothes, so give me a shout if you need any help.

Love,

        You’re very welcome! ❤️ I hope gals will enjoy it and to be able to make it grow up step by step… I plan to add more styles but also jewelry and accessories partnerships with makers and kids fashion … (so pity you stopped your accessories shop ?) thank you for your support! There are less and less gyaru blogs uploaded so it’s important to support each other’s (I plan to add a gyaru blogs listing on mine since I often quote you ?)

      Oooh okay! What do you do with them? Do you sell them on FB, eBay etc?

    I do not dress gyaru myself, but I am a lover of J-Fashion in general, and I think that many of these shops would have some beautiful clothing that I would love to wear. Thank you for sharing them with us, doll! ❤

    Thanks for this post! That’s so helpful.

    I noticed, though, that you’ve kept writing Ratuken instead of Rakuten. Lol. Typo?
